A look at today's Kings game vs. L.A. Clippers; including, game information, three keys to the game and probable starters.

TODAY'S GAME

Kings (8-17) at Clippers (19-6)

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Staples Center, Los Angeles

TV: CSNCA

Radio: 1140, 950

THREE KEYS

Withstand the first blow: The Clippers, who have won 11 consecutive games, have the ability to jump on a team quickly. The Kings have to maintain their composure and not get behind early.

Running up the score: The Kings have given up season highs in points (122, 127) in two of their past three games. The Clippers are too good for the Kings to allow that many points and have a chance to win.

Health watch: Tyreke Evans (sore left knee) and Francisco Garcia (sore lower back) are questionable. If they can't play, Jimmer Fredette and Isaiah Thomas are the two guards on the bench.
