Despite improving their roster at the deadline, the Sacramento Kings are still the same Kings, a team that's hard to trust, doesn't play defense and doesn't win games they're supposed to win. The Kings lose on the road by an average of 7.4 points. The New Orleans Pelicans have shown flashes here and there, and they're winning their last five games by an average of 10.8 points while shooting 50.5 percent from the field. Give me the Pelicans and the reasonable number.
