Los Angeles Lakers vs Sacramento Kings (By: Khum)
Los Angeles Lakers - Sacramento Kings
For the past 5 days the Lakers have went through a lot of challenges.
Started with the Christmas game in the Oracle Arena, where they blew the back-to-back champions off the court, they lost their leader in Lebron James (groin injury) and they lost their second leader in Rajon Rondo (finger injury).
Then they went to Sacramento and lost in the final second to the Kings. That was a frustrating loss and a tiring one, as Kuzma played 40:02 minutes, Ingram 37:36 and Ball 36:50.
One day later they fell in the 4th quarter with a 0-22 rund against the Clippers, as this tipster has predicted.
It seems that Rondo will have a surgery and he will miss some weeks, maybe a month. James will also miss several games. McGee is still questionable.
In the same period of time, The Kings have only played two games, the loss at the Clippers and the upper mentioned win against the depleted Lakers.
The Lakers find themselves once again less rested than the opponents and still without James and Rondo. The fact that JaVale McGee will be back shouldnțt help them a lot, concerning the super fast paced style of play Sacramento brings on the table. Guys like McGee and Tyson Chandler are assets in the half court game and more or less liabilities in run'n'gun game.
Let's go green!
