TODAY’S GAME

KINGS (13-18)

AT BOSTON (10-18)

THE PARTICULARS

▪ Where: TD Garden

▪ Time: 10 a.m.

▪ TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140

THREE KEYS

▪ 1. Reduce the turnovers: The Kings average 15.7 turnovers, tied for fourth highest in the NBA entering Tuesday. Turnovers have been a problem since the preseason and a big factor in many of the Kings’ losses.

▪ 2. Obvious advantage: Getting the ball to center DeMarcus Cousins could be the key to the game. Cousins should have his way in the post and draw plenty of fouls, which helps the Kings control the game and get easy points.

▪ 3. Defensive running: For all the talk of faster offense, the Kings need to remember to get back on defense. It seems the team has lost its way defensively by focusing more on offense.
