Kings game plan vs. Memphis Grizzlies

KINGS (26-46) AT GRIZZLIES (50-24)

THE PARTICULARS

Where: FedExForum

Time: 5 p.m.

TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140

THREE KEYS

1. Speed it up: The Kings must play up-tempo against the Grizzlies. Memphis excels at a slow pace, and its halfcourt defense can dominate.

2. Guard production: The Kings’ guards are coming off one of their worst showings of the season in Friday’s loss at New Orleans, and they’ll try to bounce back against one of the best defensive backcourts in the league.

3. Bench support: Friday’s loss also included one of the worst performances by the Kings’ bench in some time. Sacramento needs more from the second unit to win on the road.
