Through 2 Quarters

A victory for the Los Angeles Lakers would push them above even, but the Sacramento Kings are definitely not making it easy for them. Los Angeles and Sacramento are all tied up at 59.

The Lakers have been relying on small forward Talen Horton-Tucker, who has 13 points and two assists in addition to three boards, and center Dwight Howard, who has 12 points along with eight rebounds. Howard is close to surpassing his season high of 13. One thing to keep an eye out for is Carmelo Anthony's foul situation as he currently sits at three.

Point guard De'Aaron Fox (19 points) has been the top scorer for Sacramento.
