The Los Angeles Lakers and the free bucket is intriguing, but the Kings are a young team on the rise that has to view these games as a chance to keep taking steps in the right direction. The Kings have already won 6 of the last 9 meetings against the Lakers. The Los Angeles Lakers are a veteran team that kind of picks their spots when to show up, and it's still early in the season where guys are getting their feet wet. The Kings should be the more upbeat team in this one. I'll lay the bucket.
