The Kings have seemingly done well on some relatively high draft picks in recent years and they have the young, sharp head coach they desired but they continue to flounder at the middle to bottom of the Western Conference standings.
De’Aaron Fox is averaging over 21 and six assists on decent splits. Buddy Hield is averaging over 16 points per game. Both are max or near-max players.

Rookie Tyrese Haliburton is averaging double-figures and looks like a good selection at number 12 in the most recent NBA Draft.
Even Marvin Bagley is averaging 13 and eight and has stayed healthy thus far.
It doesn’t seem to matter. The Kings can’t win consistently. They are even worse than their record suggests and are 28th in the league in Net Rating.
They did have a three-game winning streak prior to a one-point defeat in Miami on Saturday. This is the final game of a four-game road trip.
New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans are similar in the sense that they are full of young talent and have even signed some established veterans, such as Steven Adams (the Kings splurged on Harrison Barnes a couple of years ago).
They, too, can’t seem to enter the upper echelon of those out West. In fact, New Orleans is near to the bottom, better only than Minnesota, though with a Net Rating 21st in the league.
Head Coach Stan Van Gundy has only been in New Orleans this season but he won’t last long if he doesn’t make a consistent winner of Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson.
They are two of the best young offensive weapons in the league. They have not teamed up to create any better than a middling offense, however.
Combine that with a defense that’s even a little worse than middling and you have a young team with much to be desired.

New Orleans should be able to assert itself against the Kings, especially at home and against an opponent eager to return home.
So I’ll lay the three points and take the home chalk.
