TODAY'S GAME

Kings (20-40) vs. Bobcats (13-45)

Time: 3 p.m.

Where: Sleep Train Arena

TV: CSNCA

Radio: 1140, 950

THREE KEYS

Too many points: The Kings allowed 120.8 points per game during their 1-4 trip. Even for the Kings, who have struggled most of the season defensively, that was especially horrendous. In the four losses, the opposition shot at least 50 percent.

Rested and ready: After looking sluggish to start Friday's blowout loss at San Antonio, the Kings had Saturday off after eight days away from home. They need a good start today, even with the afternoon tipoff.

Active hands: The Kings made 38 steals in their last three games. Forcing turnovers helps them get transition baskets, a must for a team that struggles with shooting most games.
