Sacramento Kings vs. Los Angeles Lakers

Where: STAPLES Center, Los Angeles, CA

When: Friday, November 15, 10:30 PM. ET.

The Los Angeles Lakers will be going for their third consecutive win when they take on the Sacramento Kings on Friday night.

Kings Going For Fifth Win In Six Games

The Kings have played well since they dropped their first five games of the season and have won four of their last five games. They will be going for their third win in a row and fifth win in their last six games when they face the Lakers on Friday.

Head coach Luke Walton, who was fired by the Lakers after last season, will get a chance at some payback against the team he used to play for and coach.

Sacramento is averaging 105.6 points per game, but the team has played better on the offensive end during their current run. They are shooting 44 percent from the field and 37 percent from three-point range.

In their last game, the Kings 107 points as they picked up a win over the Portland Trailblazers. Bogdan Bogdanovic led the way for Sacramento with 25 points and 10 assists. Buddy Hield finished with 20 points and four rebounds, while Nemanja Bjelica finished with 19 points, 12 rebounds, and four assists.

Hield suffered an ankle injury in their last game and is expected to miss Friday’s game.

The Kings have also played well defensively during their run and held the Trailblazers to 99 points in their last game. They will need to continue playing well defensively to give themselves a chance to win this game.

Lakers Going For Third consecutive Win Over Kings

The Lakers won their last two meetings against the Kings last season and will be trying to pick up where they left off and take the third consecutive game against their bitter rivals. However, getting a win on Friday won’t be an easy task for the Lakers because Sacramento is playing well right now and Luke Walton will have his team ready to go on Friday.

Los Angeles has played well offensively, averaging 110.8 points per game. The team is shooting 47 percent from the field and 32 percent from three-point range.

They have played well since they were held to 104 points by the Toronto Raptors on Sunday and have topped 120 points in each of their last two games.

In their last game, Anthony Davis sat out to rest his ailing shoulders, but the offense didn’t miss a beat against the Golden State Warriors. LeBron James led the Lakers with 23 points, six rebounds, and 12 assists. Kyle Kuzma added 22 points and five rebounds, while JaVale McGee finished with 18 points, 17 rebounds, and three blocks.

Los Angeles has also played well defensively, holding opponents to 100.9 points per game. The team held the Warriors to 94 points in their last game and should be able to walk away with the win if they keep the Kings under 100 points on Friday.

Best Bets for this Game

Full-Game Side Bet

Insiders Status:

Rating:

The Kings have turned things around since their slow start and have won four of their last five games, but the Lakers are the pick here because they have dominated their opponents this season thanks to the second-best defense in the league, which is holding opponents to 100.9 points per game. The Kings have played better offensively over the last week, but they are still inconsistent, averaging 105.6 points per game. Their defense also hasn’t been very good, with opponents averaging 110.3 points per game. They will have a hard time slowing down the Lakers, who have scored at least 120 points in each of their last two games. With the Lakers playing well on both ends at the moment, the Kings don’t have much of a chance in this game.

Prediction: Los Angeles Lakers -8.5

Full-Game Total Pick

Insiders Status:

Rating:

The Lakers are hot offensively, averaging 121.5 points per game in their last two games. Even though the Kings are averaging 105.6 points per game, the two teams will stay under the total in this game because the Lakers’ defense has held their last four opponents to 100.5 points per game and will likely keep the Kings under 100 in this game.
