The Los Angeles Lakers are banged up and on the end of a back to back, but this line is simply absurd. The Sacramento Kings are better than they've been in past years, but their defense has taken a step back over the last week, and they only win at home by an average of 3.5 points. Assuming LeBron plays, I can't leave this many points on the table with the Lakers, a team that's won 4 straight. Give me the points.
