Lakers players Metta World Peace

The Lakers are playing great basketball to start the season, especially on offense. As a team, they are playing fast and tonight they get a chance to square off a poor Kings defense. If they can speed the game up, the over is a great value between these two teams.

 

L.A. Lakers vs Sacramento Kings

The Lakers are coming into their game with the Kings cashing the over in four of their last five games and even though the Kings are playing much slower this season with Dave Joerger as their head coach. However, even Joerger can’t solve this team’s dilemma of not being able to play defense and against an underrated team like the Lakers, it might show tonight.

Los Angeles has won three of their last four games SU and they are 6-2 ATS so far this season. The Kings have been good lately, winning in Toronto and beating up on New Orleans recently, but they also have a defensive rating of 110 points per 100 possessions. I can guarantee the Lakers will try and speed up the pace of this game and if they are successful, the Kings might even be playing from behind, forcing them to run their offense at a faster pace.

Luke Walton has this Lakers team playing great on offense, scoring over 107 points per 100 possessions. If they can get 100 possessions in this game, they should have no problem getting above that number against a poor Kings defense. My suggestion is to take the over for your NBA picks.
