TONIGHT'S GAME

Kings (19-33) at Grizzlies (32-18)

• Time: 5 p.m.

• Where: FedExForum, Memphis, Tenn.

• TV: CSNCA

• Radio: 1140

THREE KEYS

• 1. Keep moving: Good ball movement and running the floor have led to plenty of points in the Kings' last two wins. Contrast that with their visit to Memphis last month, when they set season lows in points (69) and assists (nine).

• 2. Big play: Without All-Star forward Zach Randolph, Memphis beat the Kings by 16 the last time they played. Assuming Randolph and Marc Gasol play tonight, the Kings need strong games from DeMarcus Cousins and Jason Thompson.

• 3. Hot hand: Keith Smart has shown he is willing to stick with lineups he believes are clicking during games. If he finds one he likes tonight, regardless of who is on the floor, that unit likely will find the game in its hands late.
