The Sacramento Kings head to Los Angeles on Sunday to face off against the Kings of Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Los Angeles Clippers are one of the top teams in the NBA this season, and if all goes according to plan for the Clippers, L.A. is planning on challenging the Spurs for the West. The Clippers had the day off on Saturday, after taking care of business against the lowly Lakers, beating Los Angeles 118-111. The Clippers offense was on point Saturday night, as the Clippers had five different players reach double digit points against the Lakers, with Griffin leading the way with 39. DeAndre Jordan and Chris Paul also finished the night with double/doubles against the Lakers.

The Sacramento Kings are sitting at 1-1 this season, and while I do feel the Kings could be an improved team this year, the Kings aren’t exactly in a favorable position, sharing the same division as the Suns, the Clippers and the Warriors. Sacramento did earn a solid win in their last outing, defeating the Phoenix Suns 103-94 on Friday night. The Kings were even up with the Suns heading into the fourth quarter, but a solid late push by Sacramento put them over the top. Rudy Gay went off against the Suns on Friday, putting up 40, while both Cousins and Collison finished the night with 17 points.
The Kings are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games against the Clippers in Los Angeles.
I have to back the Kings in this spot. The Kings look to have the edge on the boards right now, and while the Clippers are going to be tough to stop, I do like how Sacramento is built defensively. Not sure I’ll be on this one personally, but getting points with Sacramento here looks like the right side.
