LA -13 Total 232
The Los Angeles Lakers will go to Sacramento, California, to take on the Sacramento Kings at the Golden 1 Center on Saturday. The Los Angeles Lakers will be on a back-to-back, playing the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday, and the Sacramento Kings on Saturday. Due to the Clippers game being postponed due to the loss of Kobe Bryant, the Los Angeles Lakers are coming off of a loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, that saw the Lakers get dominated due to Tobias Harris and Ben Simmons' terrific nights. The loss snapped a two-game winning streak the Lakers were on. The Lakers have still won seven of their last ten games.
The Los Angeles Lakers are 36-10 on the season. The Lakers are the best team in the Western Conference as LeBron James, and Anthony Davis has been incredible this season. Both James and Davis were voted as NBA All-Star Starters last week, with James being named a captain alongside Giannis Antetokounmpo.
The Sacramento Kings are coming off of a win over the Los Angeles Clippers that saw De'Aaron Fox go off for 34 points, and Buddy Hield contributed with 19 points as well. The Kings have won three of their last five games.
The Sacramento Kings are 18-30 and are 8-14 at their home arena this season. The Kings best category is their defense as they are in the top 15 in points per game, but are in the bottom ten in points per game as they need more fire on offense.
Los Angeles is 24-21-1 ATS this season
Lakers are 4-0 ATS in their last four games playing on 0 days rest.
Sacramento is 23-24-1 ATS this season
Kings are 1-3-1 ATS in their last five games playing on one day's rest.
Emotions will still likely be running high, and maybe running high all season, as the Los Angeles Lakers grieve over the loss of Lakers legend Kobe Bryant. It's difficult to know what the Los Angeles Lakers will look like, and LeBron James will look like before seeing the game on Friday against the Portland Trail Blazers. However, as long as the Los Angeles Lakers are playing as well as they happen this season, they're one of if not the most dangerous team in all of the NBA, and I don't think the Sacramento Kings will be able to deal with the firepower that is LeBron James and Anthony Davis. I think the Lakers win this one and win this one convincingly. Final Score Prediction, 124 - 114.
