A look at tonight's Kings game vs. L.A. Clippers; including, broadcast information, three keys to the game and probable starters.

TONIGHT'S GAME

Clippers (1-1) at Kings (1-0)

Time: 7 p.m.

Where: Sleep Train Arena

TV: CSNCA

Radio: 1140, 950

THREE KEYS

1. Guard the shooters: The Clippers added J.J. Redick and Jared Dudley to go with Jamal Crawford, giving the Clippers three long-range shooters.

2. Post presence: Coming off a dominant season opener, DeMarcus Cousins will look to punish the Clippers inside and force double teams, which would free teammates for open shots.

3. Protect the rim: Whether in transition or halfcourt play, the Kings must be wary of Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan getting to the basket for easy dunks. That could happen off lob passes or pick-and-rolls.
