LA Lakers vs Sacramento Kings by AlexP
Sacramento without Cousins once more, and they struggle to win every game without him. Since he´s out, they won 2 out of 5, all played at home. They only won against Indiana in overtime and against the Jazz they had a tuff time too to win the match, as Utah kept it close till the start of the 4th.
This will be a tough contest for them on the road. Even if i like how they started the season so far, Cousins is just a main piece of this Kings puzzle and without him i see a clear chance for the Lakers to get finaly a win here at home. They only won 2 out of 11 here in L.A.
Lakers on the other hand are coming from 3 low field goal% games in a row. Pelicans, Boston & Washington. They lost them 3.
The good part i liked is that coach Scott gave bench players more minutes trying to give them more confidence and looking to finaly hit a winning team in the right order.
Before the loss at home against the Pelicans, they played against the Raptors and the Timberwolves and scored over 50% field goals. Beating the Raptors in overtime and loosing to the Wolves by 1.
My point here is that Lakers should be able to step up their defense game tonight as Cousins is out (Kings leading rebounder) . Hill should win the rebound battle for the Lakers and if they can come back to their 50% field goals, i see them favorites to win this match tonight.
