TONIGHT'S GAME

Kings (27-46) vs. Lakers (37-36)

• Time: 7 p.m.

• Where: Sleep Train Arena

• TV: Ch. 10

• Radio: KHTK 1140

THREE KEYS

• Running men: The Kings must run at every opportunity and exploit the Lakers' shaky transition defense. A slow game favors the Lakers if they use Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol and Kobe Bryant in the post because injuries have hurt their depth.

• Don't get discouraged: After a good stretch of play, the Lakers have become prone to building a lead and eventually allowing their opponent back in the game.

• Team rebound: DeMarcus Cousins will need help on the glass with the NBA's leading rebounder (Howard) and Gasol on the floor. Consistent rebounding has been a problem all season for Sacramento.
