TONIGHT'S GAME

Kings (6-12) at Trail Blazers (8-11)

• Time: 7 p.m.

• Where: Rose Garden, Portland

• TV: CSNCA, NBA

• Radio: 1140

THREE KEYS

• Point guard play: Trail Blazers rookie Damian Lillard controlled the game in last month's win over the Kings in Sacramento. The Kings can't allow him to dominate with no answer from Aaron Brooks.

• Big activity: The Kings can't allow J.J. Hickson to dominate with his rebounding. He has 11 double-digit rebounding games this season.

• Health watch: If Tyreke Evans' sore left knee keeps him out, the Kings will need to figure out how to manage, especially on defense against Portland's bigger guards.
