TONIGHT'S GAME

Kings (27-50) vs. Hornets (27-51)

• Time: 7 p.m.

• Where: Sleep Train Arena

• TV: CSNCA

• Radio: KHTK (1140)

THREE KEYS

• Finding Ryan: Ex-Oak Ridge High School and Cal star Ryan Anderson is averaging 22 points in two games against the Kings this season. The Kings can't lose track of him, especially when he's setting up for three-point shots.

• Speed it up: The Kings struggle when playing at a slower pace. They are 7-34 when scoring fewer than 100 points, so relying on defense in a slower game is not their strength.

• Home pride: The Kings have lost a season-worst five straight home games, and tonight they'll face a team with a losing record for the final time this season. Friday, they open a three-game trip against playoff contenders.
