THE PARTICULARS

Where: Golden 1 Center

When: Friday, 7:30 p.m.

TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140

THREE KEYS

1. Offensive stamina: The Kings are improving on offense but remain prone to scoring droughts. They need a balanced effort to attack and keep their scoring options viable.

2. Keep it moving: When the Kings have difficulty scoring, they dribble too much and don’t pass enough. When the Kings do dribble, they must attack the rim.

3. Bench support: Washington has one of the best starting lineups in the league, but its bench isn’t as deep as other good teams’. The Kings can’t allow the Wizards’ second unit to beat their reserves.
