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

TONIGHT'S GAME

Kings (21-42) vs. Suns (21-40)

Time: 7 p.m.

Where: Sleep Train Arena

TV: CSNCA

Radio: 1140, 950

THREE KEYS

Win in the paint: The Suns will be without starting center Marcin Gortat because of a foot injury, which should give DeMarcus Cousins a chance to break out of his two-game slump on offense. The rest of the Kings must attack the rim, too.

More inside game: Jason Thompson is averaging 17.7 points on 71.9 percent shooting (23 of 32) in his last three games, so the Kings should look for him more.

Finish strongly: The Kings have blown leads in their two games against the Suns, both losses. If the game comes down to defensive stops late, Toney Douglas could finish the game at point guard instead of Isaiah Thomas or Jimmer Fredette.
