Joes Pick To Cover The Spread

The Kings will head to LA on a two-game winning streak, as they are jockeying for seeding in a bunched-up middle part of the Western Conference. Just one game separates them from the 5th seed. On the other end, the Clippers are still in the thick of things for the top spot in the West. Although I see the Clippers winning this one straight-up, I do like the Kings to cover the spread. My pick is Sacramento at +6.5.
