The Sacramento Kings look for a win after losing eight of their last nine games. On the season, the Kings are averaging 100.9 points on 45.3 percent shooting and are allowing 105.1 points on 45.7 percent shooting. Ben McLemore is averaging 11.9 points and 2.9 rebounds while Omri Casspi is averaging 8.4 points and 3.8 rebounds. Derrick Williams is grabbing 2.7 rebounds and Ray McCallum is dishing 2.7 assists. The Sacramento Kings are coming off a Sunday loss to the Nuggets in which they allowed 54.9 percent shooting. The Kings are another team that’s thrilled the season is finished. Seven of the Kings last 10 victories have come on their home court. Reggie Evans is questionable with a thumb injury.
The Lakers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 road games. The Kings are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest. The Lakers are 3-0-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Sacramento and 6-1-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings overall.
The Lakers are still somewhat compeiting, as they topped 100 points against a solid Mavericks team. The Kings have thrown in the towel a while ago and are without their top four players. I don't love the game but if forced to pick, I'm siding with the points and the Lakers.
