The Sacramento Kings aren't a team I'm thrilled to back in the favorite role, but they're the healthier team here and have been more competitive despite their losses. The Portland Trail Blazers are a complete mess without Dame and CJ, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 12.4 points while shooting 42.3 percent from the field. The Trail Blazers are completely lost without their top two players, and these games aren't close. The Kings should win this game.
