TONIGHT'S GAME

Kings (19-38) at Heat (40-14)

• Time: 4:30 p.m. • Where: AmericanAirlines Arena, Miami

• TV: CSNCA • Radio: 1140, 950

THREE KEYS

• Speak and listen: The Kings don't talk enough on defense, often allowing opponents to score with ease. If they can be more vocal, perhaps they can stop allowing opponents to surpass 100 points, as each has done during the team's five-game losing streak.

• Double trouble: LeBron James is having another MVP-caliber season. The Kings have no answer for him, but no one does. Another problem for Sacramento is that Dwyane Wade appears to be rounding into elite form. That will put pressure on the already shaky defense.

• Limit mistakes: The Heat might be the best team in the NBA at turning turnovers into highlight dunks. If the Kings are careless with the ball, they will find themselves on the wrong side of tonight's highlights again. The Heat has done that to a lot of teams during its 11-game winning streak.
