THE PARTICULARS

  • Where: Smoothie King Center
  • When: Monday, 5 p.m.
  • TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140
  • Records: Kings 25-36, Pelicans 23-38

THREE KEYS

  • 1. Proceed with caution: The Kings had 21 turnovers in their loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday. Those mistakes kept them from taking full advantage of the Spurs’ 22 turnovers.
  • 2. Bench consistency: Aside from Darren Collison, their most reliable reserve lately, the Kings need more production from their bench.
  • 3. Guard play: Injuries have decimated New Orleans’ backcourt, and the Kings’ guards must capitalize.
