TODAY'S GAME

Kings (13-21) vs. Grizzlies (21-10)

• Time: 7 p.m.

• Where: Sleep Train Arena

• TV: CSNCA

• Radio: KHTK (1140)

THREE KEYS

1. Rebounding improvement: The Kings need more consistent rebounding. DeMarcus Cousins usually does his part, but the Kings have been outrebounded 23 times this season and are 6-17 in those games. The Grizzlies have the NBA's second-leading rebounder, Zach Randolph.

2. Bench boost: After their reserves were outscored 50-25 by Brooklyn's reserves, the Kings need more from the bench, especially in the second quarter, when they have struggled. If Tyreke Evans returns tonight, he'll come off the bench, and that should help.

3. Road rust: It's often said the first game after a trip is as tough as a road game. The Kings can't afford to fall into that trap against a talented Grizzlies team.
