The Kings are looking for their third-straight win, having beaten the New Orleans Pelicans (102-94) and the Toronto Raptors (96-91.) A win over their California rivals would put the team at .500, as they dropped four straight games at the first month of the season. Yikes. That had to hurt and that losing streak is a painful reminder for the Kings.
“We can get better,” DeMarcus Cousins, 26, of Sacramento told reporters following their win over the Pelicans, according to Fox Sports. “We had some letups that you can’t have.” Turning around a sluggish start is “not something that you can just come out and do,” DeMarcus added. “It takes a lot of energy, but it also takes a mindset and a focus.”
The Kings better focus on the Lakers. This is a team that beat the Golden State Warriors, 117-97. A 20-point win over Steph Curry’s, 28, crew? That’s unthinkable, so it’s not beyond reason to assume that coach Luke Walton will have D’Angelo Russell, 20, Nick Young, 31, Lou Williams, 30, and the rest of the young Lakers squad come with guns blazing. If Sacramento doesn’t focus, then they’ll watch as Los Angeles leaves the Kings’ brand new stadium with another notch in the win column.
Who do you think will win this game, HollywoodLifers? Are you pulling for the Lakers or are you hoping the Kings win 3-games in a row?
