The Line: Sacramento Kings -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
The Lakers head to Sacramento on Wednesday to face off against the Kings.
The Sacramento Kings are just putting in their time at this point, as the Kings are sitting at 26-48 this season, giving the Kings one of the worst records in the league. Sacramento can put up some points, scoring an average of 101 points per game this season, but the defense has been horrible, giving up more than 103 per outing. Sacramento has dropped three out of their last four heading into this meeting with the Lakers; however the Kings did get a win last time out, so perhaps this team can find themselves a small bit of momentum with the end in sight.

The Lakers fell to the Trail Blazers on Tuesday night, dropping the Lakers record to 25-48 this season. Like the Kings, the Lakers have to be looking to the post season, and putting this year behind them. Los Angeles, also like the Kings, has a solid offensive attack, putting up an average of 102.6 points per game, but the Lakers defense has been horrendous this season, ranking 29th in the league, giving up 108.7 points per outing. The Lakers, with their loss on Tuesday, have dropped three out of their last four.
The Lakers are 9-3 against the spread in their last 12 games against teams with a losing record at home. The Lakers are also just 1-4 against the spread in their last five games against the West, and in their last four road games, the Lakers are 0-4 against the spread.
