The Lakers look to put an end to another losing streak when they welcome in the Sacramento Kings Wednesday night.
Los Angeles has dropped 3 in a row with their most recent defeat coming against the Rockets.
As for the Kings, they’ve rattled off 2 straight wins as DeMarcus Cousins looks to get Sacramento back into the Western Conference playoff race.
Sacramento has played 8 games in the month of January and not one of those games has featured good defense from them or their opposition.
There has been just one occasion where a team did not reach the 100 point plateau as the Kings feel 109-97 on 1/14 to the Hornets. Otherwise, it’s been a battle of games well into the 100s.
The Kings have put up 110 and 103 points in their latest wins as they’ve knocked off the Jazz and Clippers. Both wins have come on the road as they look to finish off this 3 game road swing undefeated.
Wins on the road have been hard to come by as the Kings are just 7-12 SU away from Sacramento.
Putting an end to losing streaks has been a very popular trend for this Lakers team this season.
Los Angeles has compiled another losing streak, this time 3 games, as they get set to host the Kings here on Wednesday. Los Angeles dropped back to back road games to Golden State and Utah, before returning home and getting routed by the Rockets.
The Lakers started this month with back to back wins and looked like they may have finally started to figure things out. However, since those two wins the Lakers have dropped 7 of 8 this month and find themselves in dead last in the Western Conference.
Los Angeles ranks near the bottom in most offensive categories as they average just 96.3 points per game. Free agent signee Lou Williams has been the best thing they have to an offensive threat as he is averaging 15.5 points per game this season.

Free NBA Prediction:
The Lakers have looked bad in their latest 3 losses as they’ve gone back to turning the ball over and forcing shots up.
With a couple extra days off to regroup and get their health back to 100%, this is a spot where the Lakers should have some success. With the exception of DeMarcus Cousins, the Kings really don’t have too much to work with when it comes to controlling the paint.
