TODAY’S GAME

KINGS (20-38) VS. TIMBERWOLVES (28-29)

• Time: 7 p.m.

• Where: Sleep Train Arena

• TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140, 950

THREE KEYS

• 1. Love on the move: Minnesota big man Kevin Love can hurt the Kings with his scoring and rebounding. The Kings have to be especially careful not to leave Love unguarded on the perimeter because he can score from three-point range.

• 2. Ball security: Turnovers are a nightly concern for the Kings, especially against the Timberwolves. Minnesota excels at scoring in transition off turnovers, led by Ricky Rubio, who leads the NBA with 2.47 steals per game.

• 3. Center of focus: In his first game back from a one-game suspension, the Kings need DeMarcus Cousins concentrating on the game. He cannot become overly involved in jawing with opponents or the officials.
