TODAY’S GAME

KINGS (7-18) AT MAGIC (8-18)

Time: 4 p.m.

Where: Amway Center, Orlando, Fla.

TV: CSNCA

Radio: 1140

THREE KEYS

1. Post duel: DeMarcus Cousins is having a good season, but Orlando’s Nikola Vucevic is emerging as a force in the paint, too. This won’t be an easy matchup for Cousins.

2. He’s a keeper: Orlando’s drafting of shooting guard Victor Oladipo second overall in June presumably meant Arron Afflalo’s exit. Instead, Afflalo is averaging a team-high 21.6 points.

3. Mental toughness: This is the last game on Sacramento’s four-game trip. The Kings must remain focused and avoid looking forward to returning home. Of the Kings’ four opponents on the trip, Orlando has the worst record.
