TODAY’S GAME

KINGS (20-36)

VS. ROCKETS (38-18)

• Time: 7 p.m.

• Where: Sleep Train Arena

• TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140, 950

THREE KEYS

• 1. Turnovers: Even in victory, the Kings are committing too many turnovers. They had 21 in their win at Denver on Sunday. The decision-making must improve to reduce the mistakes and avoid giving Houston easy scoring chances.

• 2. Defensive focus: The Kings have defended well in two wins over the Rockets this season. The game plan to contain James Harden must be solid, and DeMarcus Cousins has to do another good job on Dwight Howard.

• 3. Fourth scorer: Cousins, Rudy Gay and Isaiah Thomas combined for 92 points on Sunday. The Kings can’t expect that kind of production every night, so someone else must contribute.
