I know the Los Angeles Clippers have been in a bit of a funk these last two weeks, and they're on the end of a back to back, but this line is disrespectful. The Sacramento Kings are a lousy basketball team that's lost 10 of their last 14 games, is losing their last five games by an average of seven points and loses at home by an average of 4.7 points. Tired legs or not, the Clippers should be able to get the job done here. I'll gladly lay the bucket.
