DeAaron Fox led the way for the Kings with 19 points, while Keegan Murray added five points in the 133-86 victory over the Lakers.
The Lakers are sitting in 14th place on the Western Conference standings having recorded two victories and eight defeats from 10 games.
While the Kings placed 13th on the Western Conference standings having registered three wins and six defeats from nine matches.
On November 8, Utah Jazz beat the Lakers 139-116 their second victory over the short-handed Los Angeles side in four days.
Lakers coach Darvin Ham said the onus is on his team to utilize their existing talent and skills to generate a winning culture again.
“We need to step up and play better. We can’t go out and get people, we are already a repeat tax offender," Ham said.
"We can’t spend money to build a team. We already have three big-time, first-ballot future Hall of Famers that a chuck of our budget is spent on and there’s only so much left.”
