This Friday will see a California showdown as the Sacramento Kings travel down to La La Land to take on the Lakers.
Neither team has much to play for at this point, but both are coming off of wins. The Kings won a close one in their last meeting, winning 97-96 on Valentine’s Day in L.A.
Although they are out of playoff contention and seemed to be tanking, the Kings continue to play hard and win games. Sacramento has won two straight, including a 98-87 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday.
The Lakers are also riding a two-game win streak of their own, defeating two playoff teams in a row.
That includes a 102-95 victory in San Antonio on Wednesday.
After trading away Boogie Cousins, it seemed clear that the Kings were going into full tanking mode. However, the players continue to play hard and pull off some wins.
The Kings won a high-scoring battle (123-117) against the Timberwolves on Saturday, and then a very low-scoring game (98-87) against the Mavericks on Tuesday.
Sacramento scores an average of 102.4 points per game which ranks 25th in the league. They rank 28th in rebounding with only 41 and 17th in assists with 22.3 per contest. On the other end, the Kings allow 106.4 points per game which ranks them 18th in scoring defense.
Los Angeles Lakers
Like their opponents, the Lakers are another team that seemed to be tanking but have now won two in a row. They defeated the struggling Memphis Grizzlies 108-103 at home on Sunday
L.A. then defeated the Spurs 102-95 in San Antonio, although the Spurs are officially in rest mode now. They now own the 3rd worst record in the NBA and actually need to stay there in order to keep their draft pick this year.
The Lakers rank 16th in scoring offense with 104.7 points per game. They rank 15th in rebounding with 43.6 and 26th in assists with only 20.8 per contest. They have been down-right horrible on defense, allowing 111.9 points per game which ranks 28th in the NBA in scoring D.

Free Sacramento Kings vs. Los Angeles Lakers NBA Prediction:
Even though they have nothing to play for, both of these teams are playing hard to the end of the year. The Kings won a tough one on the road against Minnesota in which their offense shined.
Then it was the defense which helped the defeat the Mavericks in the next game.
The Lakers actually need to stop this winning business if they hope to keep their 1st round draft pick this year. If the pick is outside of the top 3, it goes to Philadelphia per a trade agreement.
