TODAY’S GAME

KINGS (28-53) VS. SUNS (47-34)

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Where: Sleep Train Arena

• TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140

THREE KEYS

• 1. Guard play: The Suns are led by the dynamic guard play of Eric Bledsoe and Goran Dragic, who is day-to-day with a sprained left ankle. If Dragic sits, the Suns will start Gerald Green who is having a career year, averaging 16.5 points.

• 2. Bench production: With DeMarcus Cousins out (suspension) and Rudy Gay a game-time decision (lower back strain), the Kings need Derrick Williams, Jason Thompson and others to help fill the void.

• 3. Transition game: The Kings have to focus on getting back on defense to keep the Suns from scoring easily. The Kings cannot become lackadaisical and get beaten downcourt.
