Kings game plan vs. Atlanta

KINGS (22-43) VS. HAWKS (52-14)

THE PARTICULARS

Where: Sleep Train Arena

Time: 7 p.m.

TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140

THREE KEYS

1. Home boost: After more than two weeks on the road, the Kings need to thrive off the home crowd. That might be enough to get them through their second-half lulls, which have caused them to blow big leads.

2. Stick with what works: Ball movement and disciplined defense have allowed the Kings to build big leads. When the pressure is on, they cannot afford to deviate from that.

3. 30 again?: DeMarcus Cousins has scored at least 30 points in his last two games. If Rudy Gay (knee) can’t play, the Kings will need another big outing from Cousins.
