The Sacramento Kings and Los Angeles Clippers meet Sunday in NBA action at the Staples Center.

The Sacramento Kings look for another victory after winning five of their last eight games. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 113.1 points on 46.6 percent shooting and allowing 114.9 points on 46.6 percent shooting. Buddy Hield is averaging 20.3 points and five rebounds while De'Aaron Fox is averaging 17.5 points and 7.3 assists. Bogdan Bogdanovic is the third double-digit scorer and Willie Cauley-Stein is grabbing 8.7 rebounds. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 38.7 percent from beyond the arc and 70.5 percent from the free throw line. The Sacramento Kings are allowing 34.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.5 rebounds per game. The Sacramento Kings have lost six of their last eight road games.

The Los Angeles Clippers could use a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Los Angeles Clippers are averaging 113.9 points on 47 percent shooting and allowing 113.4 points on 45.5 percent shooting. Tobias Harris is averaging 21.1 points and eight rebounds while Danilo Gallinari is averaging 19 points and 2.5 assists. Lou Williams is the third double-digit scorer and Montrezl Harrell is grabbing 6.8 rebounds. The Los Angeles Clippers are shooting 38.2 percent from beyond the arc and 79.2 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Clippers are allowing 34.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.4 rebounds per game. The Los Angeles Clippers have lost their last four home games.

The Kings are 21-6 ATS in their last 27 games playing on 1 days rest, 2-7 ATS in their last 9 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. NBA Pacific. The Clippers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games, 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Sunday games. The Kings are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in LA and 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The under is 5-0 in Clippers last 5 overall. The under is 10-1 in Kings last 11 overall.

The Los Angeles Clippers have won nine of the last 10 meetings against the Sacramento Kings and most of those games were beatdowns. The Kings have had their moments in the underdog role this season, but they've struggled on the road, and despite winning five of their last eight games overall, they're losing by an average of 11.6 points in their last five games. The Los Angeles Clippers are healthier than they've been in quite some time and the offensive effort should improve with the return of some key players. I'll take the Clippers at home and the reasonable number. 

Pick:
L..A. Clippers -4.5
