The Sacramento Kings stink up the joint more times than not, and them being on the end of a back to back makes me hate them even more. The Los Angeles Clippers have cooled off over the last week or so, but they have the rest advantage, and they still win in the favorite role by an average of 3.8 points. I just can't back the Kings with much confidence these days. It's Clippers and the chalk or pass for me.
