After four days off, the Lakers (9-9) visit the Sacramento Kings (4-12) on Friday night.
The Lakers defeated the Kings on Nov. 24, a 100-86 victory at Staples Center.
Xavier Henry had a big night with 21 points off the bench. Pau Gasol and Jordan Hill notched double-doubles in the win.
Greivis Vasquez led the Kings with 20 points, followed by DeMarcus Cousins with 17.
Sacramento has struggled for wins so far this season, but the Kings won't be an easy win for the Lakers on Friday.
Kobe Bryant didn't make the trip to Sacramento. Steve Nash (back) and Jordan Farmar (hamstring) also aren't available.
The Lakers did a good job stopping high-scoring Kings reserve Isaiah Thomas in November, holding him to just nine points on 4-11 shooting.
