Kings game plan vs. Milwaukee Bucks

KINGS (18-33)

AT BUCKS (29-23)

THE PARTICULARS

Where: Bradley CenterTime: 5 p.m.

TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140

THREE KEYS

1. Inside advantage: The Bucks lack the size and strength to match the Kings in the paint. DeMarcus Cousins, Jason Thompson and Carl Landry should be effective around the rim.

2. Watch the three: The Bucks made 10 of 14 three-pointers in the first half Dec. 18 against the Kings. Sacramento cannot allow Milwaukee, which has won five in a row at home, to get hot from the perimeter.

3. Ball security: The Kings shot 56.7 percent in the first matchup but lost partly because of 21 turnovers.
