Fantasy basketball The Lakers come into this game in their best stretch of the season, despite getting blown out in their most recent game. They had won three-straight before losing by 21 points to the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday. They had to play that game without Kobe Bryant and D’Angelo Russell, so the loss was almost expected as 15-point underdogs. Both ends of the floor have been an issue this season though and while most people would say their defense has been the problem, it’s more of an offensive issue. They now rank 28th in scoring and are one of the least efficient offenses in the NBA. Their defense isn’t much better though, as they rank 27th in points allowed. The owner was quoted saying that this season is about Kobe and that seems evident considering they are one of the worst teams in the NBA.

The Kings are finally playing some good basketball right now and they should have had a win in their most recent game. They held a seven-point lead with just over a minute left against the Dallas Mavericks and choked it away in double-overtime. DeMarcus Cousins has been on a absolute tear this week though, as he has 68 points and 36 rebounds in just two games played. Rajon Rondo missed the last game with a back issue, but is expected to return here in a fantastic matchup. The offense has been on point lately for Sacramento and they should have no problem going off again here against a terrible Lakers defense. In fact, look for the Kings to come into this matchup as a projected double-digit favorite for one of the first times this season.

Fantasy basketballThe Kings have been a frustrating team this year, but have been playing better ball as of late. They have now won seven of their last 12 games and are coming off their best two-game stretch of the season. On Saturday, they scored a season-high 142 points against the Phoenix Suns and on Monday they beat the Oklahoma City Thunder on the road. Rajon Rondo had a combined 34 assists in those two games and continues to dazzle as one of the elite point guards in the NBA. This marks their third game in four days, so it should be interesting to see how they perform against a veteran team like the Mavericks.

Dallas is one of the most disciplined teams in the NBA and much of that has to be credited to their veteran leadership. They rank fourth in the NBA in turnovers and rarely allow the other team to get points off those few turnovers. Dallas does come into this game in the midst of a modest two-game losing streak, albeit against two talented teams. The surprise for this team has been the play of Zaza Pachulia, who ranks in the top-six in double-doubles this season. Look for the Mavericks to put together an efficient offensive performance here against one of the worst defenses in the NBA. In fact, they come into this game as a projected seven-point favorite.
