Lakers vs Kings – NBA: The Los Angeles Lakers have the objective of developing players like Lonzo Ball, Kuzma, and Ingram
in order to try to attract some big names for the city next season.
Which means, winning games is not really their objective. The most important thing this year is developing these young players, and it is clear that all of them have potential to become good players, especially Ingram and Kuzma.
This is a team that plays a free style of basketball on court, very offensive and sharing the ball, but that has weaknesses on defence.
However, I have to admit that it is fun to watch this team playing basketball. Their big problem has been on the key moments.
Their inexperience costs them some victories that could have given them a much better record than the one they present at the moment.
On the road: 6-14
The Sacramento Kings, despite the record not showing that, have been a very competent team this season, with a lot of close losses, because they are missing some pieces,
but Randolph, Hill and the rookie Fox have been doing well over the course of the season.
However, the strongest aspect of this team has maybe been the bench, because all of their players have been producing well and that makes them a very competent team.
However, on the road, the confidence of the remaining players isn’t as good as it is at home, which results in a lot of losses on the road.
Lakers vs Kings – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The Los Angeles Lakers, after 9 consecutive losses, have recovered some injured players and the team has started to look like the team they were at the beginning of the season, playing with a high pace and with confidence.
Tonight, at home, against the Sacramento Kings, that is a team without much confidence on the road, I expect a win for the Lakers, on a match with some rivalry between the two sides.
