A look at tonight's Kings game vs. Chicago; including: broadcast information, three keys to the game and probable starters.
Kings (22-43) vs. Bulls (35-28)
Time: 7 p.m.
Where: Sleep Train Arena
Radio: KHTK (1140)
Void up front: Either because of a suspension or his bruised left leg, the Kings figure to be without center DeMarcus Cousins. Without their leading scorer and rebounder, they will rely on Jason Thompson in the post.
Move the ball: The Bulls rank third in points allowed per game (91.3). If the Kings try to beat the Bulls with one-on-one play, they will find it tough to score.
No easy points: The Bulls are 29th in scoring at 92.3 points per game. So the Kings can't help Chicago's slow offense by giving up points off turnovers.
