Kings at Lakers

THE PARTICULARS

  • Where: Staples Center
  • When: Tuesday, 7:30 p.m.
  • TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140
  • Records: Kings 25-40, Lakers 14-53

THREE KEYS

  • 1. Watch out for Russell: Lakers rookie D’Angelo Russell is averaging 19.5 points and shooting 46.4 percent from three-point range in his last 11 games. And in three games against the Kings, he’s averaging 18.0 points and shooting 51.2 percent.
  • 2. Attack the paint: The Kings need center DeMarcus Cousins to go at Roy Hibbert to get him in foul trouble, which would force the Lakers to try to guard Cousins with smaller players.
  • 3. Have some fire in first: The Kings must play with intensity to open the game and avoid another large early deficit. Another poor start by the Kings would give the Lakers confidence.
