KINGS (22-44) VS. CLIPPERS (43-25)

THE PARTICULARS

Where: Sleep Train Arena

Time: 7 p.m.

TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140

THREE KEYS

1. Keep it under 100: The Kings have held an opponent to fewer than 100 points only once in their last 11 games, and they’ve lost nine of those. The Clippers scored 126 against the Kings last month in Los Angeles.

2. Turnovers: The Kings average 16.6 turnovers, often creating easy scoring chances for opponents. The Clippers have the ability to score in transition without the Kings’ help, so staying below 16 turnovers is a must.

3. Rebounding wars: This game features two of the league’s best rebounders. The Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan leads the NBA in rebounding (14.7) and entered Tuesday averaging 19.1 rebounds in his last 15 games. The Kings’ DeMarcus Cousins (12.3) ranks third.
