Houston Rockets @ Sacramento Kings
The Rockets are coming into this game after defeating the Golden State Warriors just last night. Nene sat out in that game to prepare him for this game, which is good because he’ll get a lot of time tonight and the Warriors spread the floor too much. Chris Paul is questionable tonight after dealing with various injuries. Good news is, James Harden will be playing and he is still a dominant scorer. Harden had his way with Klay Thompson last night.
The Kings have a young team that is building for the future with De’Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield, Willie Cauley-Stein, and Justin Jackson. They also brought in veterans like Vince Carter and Zach Randolph to help this team and transition the young players into the league. I still have to take the Rockets after a gutsy performance last night on the Warriors home floor.
Houston Rockets (-7.5)
