I'm not running to the window to back either of these teams, and I certainly don't want to lay chalk with either side. However, I have to side with the Lakers if forced to pick. The Lakers have played awful ball this season and nothing has come easy, but the Kings have been just as bad and now injures are starting to pile up. The Sacramento Kings are losing their last five games by an average of nine points while allowing 47.7 percent shooting from the field. We're not being asked to lay much. Give me the Lakers.
