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

TONIGHT'S GAME

Kings (11-20) at Cavaliers (7-25)

Time: 4 p.m.

Where: Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland

TV: CSNCA

Radio: 1140

THREE KEYS

Contain Kyrie: After winning the Rookie of the Year honor, Kyrie Irving is averaging 22.7 points and 5.6 assists, and he scored a career-high 41 points against New York on Dec. 15.

Rebounding advantage: Anderson Varejao leads the NBA in rebounding with a 14.4 average but has missed the past six games because of a right knee contusion. With Varejao on the sideline, DeMarcus Cousins should control the glass.

Find the missing points: Without their second- and third-leading scorers (Tyreke Evans and Marcus Thornton), the Kings need someone to pick up the slack.
