Kings vs.

Raptors

THE PARTICULARS

Where: Golden 1 Center

When: 6 p.m. Sunday

TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140

THREE KEYS

1. Better start: The Kings have fallen behind big in three straight games. The final scores were close, but that’s not the way to play if the Kings hope to end their four-game skid.

2. Don’t forget the post: The Kings plan to play more small ball, but they still have an advantage in the paint with DeMarcus Cousins. They cannot ignore that, especially in their halfcourt offense.

3. Repeat performance: The Kings held the Raptors’ DeMar DeRozan to a season-low 23 points Nov. 6 at Toronto. DeRozan has been held under 30 points one other time this season.
