Kings (27-14) at Spurs (52-15)

THE PARTICULARS

Where: AT&T Center, San Antonio

When: Today, 4 p.m.

TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140

THREE KEYS

1. Be ready for any lineup: The Spurs play Memphis on Saturday, so it would be a surprise if any of the Spurs’ key players are in the lineup Sunday.

2. Bench energy: San Antonio overcame a 28-point deficit to beat the Kings on March 8 behind the play of Patty Mills and Manu Ginobili off the bench. Sacramento needs a big contribution from its reserves.

3. Early energy: The Kings need a strong start. They can’t afford to fall behind big against a good San Antonio squad.
