TONIGHT'S GAME

Kings (14-24) vs. Wizards (7-28)

Time: 7 p.m.

Where: Sleep Train Arena

TV: CSNCA

Radio: 1140, 950

THREE KEYS

Watching Wall: The Wizards might bring guard John Wall off the bench as he returns from a knee injury, but he's still a top player, and his speed could be problematic.

Inside-out: The Kings went back to working through DeMarcus Cousins on offense Monday, and it helped end their four-game losing streak. As long as Cousins is scoring and setting up teammates, that's the right approach.

More defense: The Kings have allowed an average of 117.8 points in their last five games, including 118 to the Cleveland Cavaliers, who entered Monday's game averaging just 94. The Wizards also have struggled on offense most of the season.
