A look at tonight's Kings game vs. Memphis; including: game information, three keys to the game and probable starters.

TONIGHT'S GAME

Kings (15-24) vs. Grizzlies (24-13)

Time: 5 p.m.

Where: FedExForum, Memphis, Tenn.

TV: CSNCA

THREE KEYS

Bigs are big: The Kings need good games from DeMarcus Cousins and Jason Thompson to deal with Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol. Sacramento must be prepared for physical frontcourt play.

Bench boost: In their past two games, both victories, the Kings have received significant contributions from reserves. Who will play a key role off the bench tonight? It could be Chuck Hayes defending Randolph or Jimmer Fredette or Marcus Thornton scoring.

Share the ball: The Kings need good ball movement to find good shots. It will be up to Isaiah Thomas to get them off to a good start by pushing the pace.
