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

TONIGHT'S GAME

Kings (16-27) vs. Thunder (33-10)

• Time: 7 p.m.

• Where: Sleep Train Arena

• TV: CSNCA

• Radio: 1140

THREE KEYS

• Floor spacing: With Serge Ibaka and Kendrick Perkins expected to make it tough on DeMarcus Cousins, the Kings need good perimeter shooting. Jimmer Fredette might play extended minutes.

• Rim awareness: Ibaka is one of the best shot blockers in the NBA. If the Kings aren't careful around the basket, Ibaka will swat away timid attempts to score.

• Ball security: The Kings committed a season-high 25 turnovers in Wednesday's loss to Phoenix but were in the game until late. A repeat of that carelessness likely will result in being blown out by Oklahoma City.
