Sacramento Kings

The Sacramento Kings have been in a bit of a rut as they’ve lost three of their past four games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back here after falling just short to the Bulls in a 113-109 loss on Monday. De’Aaron Fox led the team with 20 points and 10 assists, Domantas Sabonis added 18 points with 21 rebounds and four assists while Keegan Murray chipped in with 11 points, six rebounds and four assists. As a team, the Kings shot 44 percent from the field and 11 of 37 from the 3-point line as they caught fire early and dominated most of the contest to lead by as many as 22 points, but they lost their focus for a second and allowed the Bulls to outscore them by 36-18 in the fourth quarter.

Los Angeles Lakers

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Lakers have been in pretty good shape as they’ve won seven of their last 10 games and they will be looking to stay hot after blowing past the Thunder in a 116-104 home win on Monday. D’Angelo Russell led the team with 26 points on nine of 17 shooting, Anthony Davis added 24 points with 12 rebounds and four assists while LeBron James tallied 19 points with 11 rebounds and eight assists. As a team, the Lakers shot 51 percent from the field and 16 of 34 from the 3-point line as they played great defense to limit the Thunder to just 18 points in the second quarter, before they exploded for 37 points in the third quarter to lead by as many as 25 points.

Kings vs Lakers Prediction

The Kings are at full health except for Sasha Vezenkov who is still out, while the Lakers are still missing Christian Wood, Jarred Vanderbilt and Gabe Vincent. The Kings have cooled off recently and they will be kicking themselves after squadnered a 22-point lead to the Bulls in their last outing, while the Lakers have been on a nice run and they just took down the surging Thunder in a solid win on Monday. It wouldn’t be shocking if the Kings pulled off the upset on the road, but the Lakers are clearly the team in better form and I think they represent decent value at the short line at home.
