The Sacramento Kings look to extend their season-best two-game home winning streak and win two in a row overall for the first time since the beginning of November. DeMarcus Cousins is coming off a career high 28 points in Sunday's comeback victory over the Suns. Tonight, he'll face noted identical twin Jason Collins.
STARTING LINEUPS & INJURIES
The Kings go with Beno Udrih, Tyreke Evans, Francisco Garcia, Jason Thompson and DeMarcus Cousins. Everyone else should be available.
It appears Larry Drew will go with his big line-up: Collins at center, Al Horford and Josh Smith at forward and Joe Johnson and Mike Bibby in the backcourt with Marvin Williams, Jamal Crawford and handsome Zaza Pachulia off the bench.

MATCHUP OF THE GAME
Evans vs. Johnson. If any two-guard in the league has been a bigger disappointment than Evans this season, that'd be J.J., the $120 million man. J.J.'s shooting touch has disapparated, and he never was much of a driver. That's problems, man. Evans drives all day, but isn't getting the whistles or the layups to drop.
PLAYER TO WATCH
Bring it on, Big Cuz.
