The Sacramento Kings are a bad basketball team, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 10.2 points. The Los Angeles Lakers have had to work for everything this season, as nothing has come easy, and I'm not thrilled with laying decent sized chalk. With that said, the Kings are awful. Like awful, awful. It's Lakers or pass for me, and there's much better options out there on a stacked Friday card.
