An in state showdown on Monday when the Lakers travel north to take on the Kings in Sacramento.
Although both have similar records, the Lakers have been a good surprise and won more then people expected, well the Kings have lost more then expected.
This is the second meeting between the two teams. The Lakers won the first meeting 101-91.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers have been one of the most surprising teams in the NBA this season. Most expected them to win very few games, and have a high lottery pick. Now that could still happen but the fact that they are 10-15 so far this season is positive.
After the Lakers have had a few injuries the last few weeks they are finally getting their players back. Nick Young and D’Angelo Russell both returned in Sunday night’s game and baring any set backs should be able to play in Monday’s game.
This is good news for the Lakers, who’s bench was very short handed when those two were out.
The Lakers highest scorer actually comes off the bench. Lou Williams is the early front runner to win sixth man of the year. On the season he is averaging 19.3 points, 3.3 assists and 2.4 rebounds a game. He is also shooting over 40 percent from behind the arc.
On the season the Lakers are averaging 104.9 points on the offensive end. On the defensive end the Lakers leave a lot to be desired, giving up 110.7 points on that end of the floor.
On the season the Lakers are 4-9 away from home.
The Kings have no shortage of star power on the team, the problem for the Kings is that star power has not resulted in wins on the court.
The Kings come into this game really struggling having lost 5 of their last 6 games. The only win came against Dallas, the worst team in the league. The Kings aren’t just losing games they are losing them by a large amount.
The leader of the Kings team is DeMarcus Cousins. He is averaging 28.2 points, 10.7 rebounds, and 3.6 assists per game. He is one of the best young centers in the league and can go off on any given night.
On the offensive end of the floor the Kings score over 104 points per game. They shoot 44.2 percent from the field. They are not really a threat from behind the arc only shooting 34.2 percent as a team.
On the defensive end the Kings give up 104 points per game. Opposing teams shoot 45.2 percent from behind the field. The Kings have slowed down the pace this year and that has really improved their defensive numbers.
At home this season the Kings are 4-6.

Free Los Angeles Lakers vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Prediction:
The Lakers are coming into this game on the second end of a back to back. It will be interesting to see how well their legs are the first quarter. I think they will come out a little slow but chip away most of the game.
