Kings vs. Miami Heat at a glance

Kings vs. Heat

THE PARTICULARS

  • Where: Sleep Train Arena
  • When: Friday, 7 p.m.
  • TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140
  • Records: Kings 30-45, Heat 43-31

THREE KEYS

  • 1. Get ready to go small: With Miami starting Joe Johnson and Luol Deng, don’t be surprised to see the Kings use their small lineups even more with Rudy Gay and Omri Casspi at the forward spots.
  • 2. More small thinking: With DeMarcus Cousins suspended for the game because of his penchant for drawing technical fouls, the Kings have even more reason to go small and run.
  • 3. Reserve power: The Kings’ bench has played well in the past two home wins. Guard Darren Collison had 13 points and 10 assists in Wednesday’s 120-111 victory over Washington.
