The Sacramento Kings Are Off to See the Lakers Tonight


It has been a rough couple of weeks for our Sacramento Kings. Once sitting at 9-5 after a nice win over the New Orleans Pelicans, the Kings have since gone 2-5 since, including going just 2-3 on a five game homestand.

So maybe the Kings need to hit the road for at least a game to get to try to build on the momentum of last night’s stellar win over the Utah Jazz, and what better way to power up for an all-important run than a visit to the trouble kingdom that is the Los Angeles Lakers.

It’s easy to say that the Lakers are a shell of what they once were. Sure, Kobe Bryant is still in there jacking up shots, and they have Nick Young there, jacking up shots, and a bunch of other players who are wild cards at best.

  • But even without our main man in the middle, who probably will be lost for the rest of the week with a stomach virus, the Kings should have an easy time with the Lakers. But then again, the Kings should had had an easy time against Indiana and Orlando, and look how those two games tuned out; one required overtime, and the other was just a horrible performance all-around.

    But nothing should be horrible this time around, as the Lakers are a team that gives up points like a department store Santa Clause. Rudy Gay should have an easy time against the Lakers Swiss cheese defense, as should Darren Collison and Ben McLemore.

    And let’s not forget Nik Stauskas, who had a breakout game against the Kings on Monday night, and should have another one against the Kings.

    Overall, this is a game, despite playing last night, the Kings should have in handy. It will be close for the first half of the game, but the Kings should be able to pull away in the second half, and get a much needed win on the road.

    My Prediction: Kings 105, Lakers 95
