The last time the Sacramento Kings and Los Angeles Lakers met the game went to overtime.
Our NBA picks and spreads looks at which team has the edge on Wednesday, and the Lakers look good to hold serve on home court.
Kings Back to Their Best
No team wants consecutive losses to the Houston Rockets on their record, but the Kings battled back with three straight wins.
They scored totals of 89 and 97 against Houston, but after a 132-120 win over Cleveland, the offense is back to its best.
Keegan Murray had 25 points, and was happy with the on-court spark.
“It felt like tonight was kind of a night we’ve kind of been waiting on, where we put it together on the same night,” Murray told the media. “It felt like it flowed really well and it felt good for everyone.”
They’ll need to produce something similar against the Lakers, who are playing their best basketball of the year.
Sacramento owns a 5-4 record against the spread, so they have been a solid bet. Sport betting odds have this game listed as even.

Lakers Cashing at Home
The Lakers have been money at home, going 5-0 after beating the Memphis Grizzlies 134-107 on Tuesday.
It was another easy home victory, and considering the Kings are only 1-3 on the road, it’s a good situation for bettors to cash in again.
LeBron James and Anthony Davis are combining well, and as long as they stay healthy, they could push for a top Western Conference position.
Lines for NBA betting on Nov. 15 aren’t giving the Lakers much respect. We thought they would be shorter to turn the tables on the Kings in the Pacific Division rivalry game.
Kings vs Lakers Head-to-Head
The Lakers have a dominant 306-176 advantage over the Kings. However, it’s the Kings who have won two straight meetings after prevailing 132-127 in overtime last month.

NBA Pick: Los Angeles Lakers
Worth Betting on the Totals?
The sportsbook has the line at 233½, and we’re backing the under, but barely. We can’t see either team catching fire offensively.
NBA Pick: Kings/Lakers Under 233½
Questions of the Day
Will the game go over or under 233½ total points?
The game should soar over a 210.5 point total. They are capable of scoring much higher.
Which team is more likely to have over 10.5 team fouls?
Defending LeBron James and Anthony Davis could see the Kings get into foul trouble.
