KINGS (25-45) AT SUNS (38-33)
Where: US Airways Center
Time: 7 p.m.
TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140
1. Perimeter defense: Defending the perimeter is more than containing guard Eric Bledsoe. Suns forwards such as Marcus Morris also will take three-pointers.
2. Pace game: The Kings want to play an up-tempo game, at which the Suns excel. Can the Kings find the right balance of when to run and when to find DeMarcus Cousins in the post?
3. Second wind: The bench could be key in the second of back-to-back games. The Kings could use a spark from the second unit as the Suns haven’t played since beating Dallas on Sunday.
