TODAY'S GAME

Kings (21-40) vs. Nuggets (39-22)

THREE KEYS

• Paint watch: Denver has scored 120 points in the paint in two games against the Kings this season. Sacramento must protect the rim better and not allow the Nuggets so many good looks in transition.

• Century mark: The Kings ended a streak of 10 games allowing more than 100 points in Sunday's 119-83 victory over Charlotte. It won't be easy keeping the Nuggets under 100, but the Kings can't let them to score the 121.5 per game they've averaged in beating Sacramento twice.

• 50-plus: Denver has shot better than 50 percent in both meetings, partly by taking advantage of Sacramento turnovers. The Kings will struggle to keep pace if they allow the Nuggets to shoot so well.
