Kings vs Lakers preview: It doesn’t matter if it’s preseason, beat L.A.

Go Kings!

The Sacramento Kings host the Los Angeles Lakers tonight to conclude their preseason. One team is a juggernaut, the other is desperately trying to end an embarrassing drought. We'll be rooting for the juggernaut, your undefeated Sacramento Kings. The Lakers are a pathetic 0-5 in preseason, and are probably desperate to break this streak.

The game will air locally on NBC Sports California and nationally on NBATV. Tip off is at 7 PM PT.

The Kings will be at full strength with one exception. After we were told that Bagley's sore knee was better and that he would be available tonight, the Kings have now downgraded Bagley to doubtful for tonight's contest.

The Lakers will be without Trevor Ariza, Wayne Elllington, Talen Horton-Tucker, Malik Monk, and Kenrick Nunn.

This thread will also serve as the game thread for tonight's action.

Go Kings!

I hope Buddy hits like, twenty-five threes, so I can scream at the television, “WHERE’S YOUR KYLY KUZMA, NOW, SEEEEEE?”

Is Bagley really, actually injured again? I figured they were holding him out for a last minute trade. Yeesh. I’ll keep hoping.

LOL, yes he’s injured. Undisclosed knee soreness has kept him out of the last two games, but for some reason he can practice.

I really don’t see Bagley playing a full season without missing a good chunk of games anytime soon.

Is the sky blue again? Did the sun set in the west again?

Hes a dead player now

Is anyone hoping he will still be good?

We are a year past potential.

Hopefully he doesn’t play when he is healthy

Pretty sure he has killed any trade possibilities by sitting out pre season games with an injury.
