Kings game plan

Published: Sunday, Dec. 8, 2013 - 8:51 pm

TONIGHT’S GAME

KINGS (5-13) VS. MAVERICKS (13-8)

Time: 7 p.m.

Where: Sleep Train Arena

TV: CSNCA Radio: 1140

THREE KEYS

1. Everyone get ready: With the Kings’ trade with Toronto in the works, Sacramento will be without four rotation players until all involved are cleared to play. The Kings will need every player ready to chip in tonight.

2. Rookie time: With Greivis Vasquez headed to Toronto, Ray McCallum could finally have a chance to play. The Kings are high on McCallum’s potential, and this could be his time to develop if the Kings don’t use Jimmer Fredette at point guard.

3. Dominant DMC: DeMarcus Cousins was efficient in Saturday’s win at Utah, despite being limited early by foul trouble. The Kings need that kind of performance again, along with stepping up as a rebounder and facilitator.
