THE PARTICULARS

  • Where: Toyota Center, Houston
  • When: Wednesday, 5 p.m.
  • TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140
  • Records: Kings 33-48, Rockets 40-41

THREE KEYS

  • 1. Prepare for the onslaught: The Rockets won’t waste much time trying to secure early, large lead with playoff berth on the line.
  • 2. More Curry: Coming off a career-high 15 assists, can Seth Curry keep up his spectacular playmaking?
  • 3. Swarm the beard: The Kings have to do all they can not to allow James Harden to dominate. That’s not easy, especially when the team is shorthanded.
