News, observations and reader questions about the Sacramento Kings and the NBA.

Julie Jacobson Associated Press Kings center DeMarcus Cousins shoots over Lakers center Robert Sacre in the fourth quarter of Friday night's preseason game in Las Vegas. Cousins had 18 points and 10 rebounds in the victory.

Pregame notes: Lakers make a lineup change, but it’s not Kobe

*Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni said he’ll start Robert Sacre at center tonight and bring Jordan Hill off the bench. Pau Gasol will start at power forward instead of center, where he’s started most of the season.

*DeMarcus Cousins will start at center for the Kings after missing Teusday’s loss to Oklahoma City with a sprained right ankle.

*Prediction time: The Kings have lost five in a row. But with all the talk of Kobe Bryant’s return Sunday and the Lakers having one healty point guard (Steve Blake), this is a game the Kings have to win.

If not, they’ll go to Utah tonight with a six-game losing streak against a Jazz team that is playing better.

Kings 107, Lakers 97

My record: 11-5
