Prediction

The Lakers blew a late lead to fall to the Sacramento Kings on the road last night, 117-116. The Lakers are 20-15 on the season, 12-5 at home, 15-19-1 against the spread and 21-13-1 with the under. Los Angeles was without LeBron James last night due to a groin injury and he is unlikely to play tonight as well.

Losing to Phoenix Suns was a serious blow to Lakers' fans hopes that they will actually make the playoffs and for that reason, there's no way I can realistically predict anything less than another disappointing show from them tonight. The Lakers, onthe other hand, don't seem like a team that has unity and the spark to pull off a victory here.
