TODAY'S GAME

76ers (26-42) vs. Kings (25-45)

Time: 6 p.m.

Where: Sleep Train Arena

TV: CSNCA

Radio: 1140, 950

THREE KEYS

Everybody helps: After another track meet in Denver on Saturday night, the Kings will have tired legs. And the 76ers have been waiting and stewing since their embarrassing collapse Thursday against the Nuggets. These are nights when depth matters. Keith Smart will go deep into his bench.

Box out: Defensive rebounding remains a weakness for the Kings, and 76ers center and former King Spencer Hawes put up some outrageous all-around numbers (for him) last week.

Keep your guard up: Remember why the Kings have been winning at home. They have been the league's most prolific scoring team since the All-Star break, but their improving defense has been a significant factor in this mini-streak. (See trade for Patrick Patterson, Toney Douglas and Cole Aldrich.) They still allow a league-worst 104.7 points per game, but the differential is narrowing.
