TONIGHT'S GAME

Kings (6-12) at Trail Blazers (8-11)

Time: 7 p.m.

Where: Rose Garden, Portland

TV: CSNCA, NBA

Radio: 1140

THREE KEYS

Point guard play: Trail Blazers rookie Damian Lillard controlled the game in last month's win over the Kings in Sacramento. The Kings can't allow him to dominate with no answer from Aaron Brooks.

Big activity: The Kings can't allow J.J. Hickson to dominate with his rebounding. He has 11 double-digit rebounding games this season.

Health watch: If Tyreke Evans' sore left knee keeps him out, the Kings will need to figure out how to manage, especially on defense against Portland's bigger guards.
