Quick hits before the Kings host the Washington Wizards:

*DeMarcus Cousins is back in the starting lineup. He was given Sunday’s loss in Minnesota off to rest.

*Reggie Evans will start at power forward.

*Royce White is inactive.

Prediction time: It’s said among NBA types the toughest game of a long road trip is the first game back home.

It’s even tougher when the team you’re playing has been in town waiting for you.

That’s the case tonight.

Wizards 105, Kings 100

My record: 41-25 (minus the pregame session missed due to travel issues).
