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

TONIGHT'S GAME

Kings (19-34) at Mavericks (22-29)

Time: 5:30 p.m.

Where: American Airlines Center, Dallas

TV: CSNCA

Radio: 1140

THREE KEYS

Cousins' composure: In two games against the Mavericks this season, DeMarcus Cousins has hit O.J. Mayo in the groin to draw a suspension and has been ejected for a flagrant foul 2 against Vince Carter. The Kings need him to stay in the game mentally.

Lineup adjustments: Coach Keith Smart has used more mobile power forwards to deal with Dirk Nowitzki. If Jason Thompson receives the assignment, he must make Nowitzki work on defense by going into the paint.

Rebounding advantage: Like the Kings, the Mavericks have a negative rebounding differential on the season. If the Kings can outrebound Dallas, they'll have a chance to win.
