TONIGHT’S GAME

KINGS (4-8) AT LAKERS (6-7)

Where: Staples Center, Los Angeles

TV: CSNCA

THREE KEYS

1. Consistent energy: The Kings cannot continue to try to overcome big deficits for wins. The same effort the Kings put into coming back in games has to be there from the opening tip.

2. Bench boost: The Lakers rely heavily on their bench, including Jordan Farmar and Nick Young for offense. The Kings need a similar boost from their reserves, led by Isaiah Thomas.

3. Jordan rules: Lakers forward Jordan Hill has made an impact with his frenetic pace in chasing down rebounds. The Kings have to make sure doesn’t give the Lakers extra shots that lead to open three pointers.
