Trail Blazers vs Kings prediction

The Trail Blazers have nothing to play for, while the Kings need a win, as they could finish anywhere from the eighth seed to the 10th seed in the west. The Kings should be favored, and they should win. However, the Kings have been a shaky team since the injuries to Monk and Huerter and that includes losses in 5 of their last 6 games. The Trail Blazers don't win much, but they've covered 39 games this season and have a young roster that plays hard. The Trail Blazers also beat the Kings by 17 points as 8.5 point underdogs a day after Christmas. Lots of points here. I'll take a shot with the Trail Blazers.
