Kings (23-44) vs. Clippers (46-21)

• Time: 7 p.m.

• Where: Sleep Train Arena

• TV: CSNCA

• Radio: 1140, 950

THREE KEYS

• Points off the pine: Clippers guard Jamal Crawford is the front-runner for NBA Sixth Man of the Year. The Kings need their reserves to provide a spark and keep Crawford under control.

• Nothing easy: The Kings had just six turnovers in Sunday's loss to the Lakers. Continuing to limit turnovers would keep the Clippers out of the open court, where they excel.

• Slow it down: The Kings' best chance of keeping the Clippers in check is to force a halfcourt game. If the Kings can slow the game and go to DeMarcus Cousins, they can cause the Clippers problems.
