It has nothing to do with NBA vs. NHL. The Kings had priority in that that NBC had the ability to choose the Kings schedule before the Clippers (or Lakers) had finished the first round. NBC picked the 12 pm start, freeing up Sunday night for the clippers.

Both the Lakers and Clippers have to play back-to-back games this weekend in order for staples center to accommodate all 3 teams, the Kings are the only team that was able to spread out the games (Thursday and Sunday) and this is because they had the scheduling priority.
