The Sacramento Kings will face the Houston Rockets once again as the teams meet on Saturday. The Rockets won 122-119 against the Kings the last time they met, which was also John Wall’s debut for Houston. It was the first win for first-time NBA head coach Stephen Silas.
It was a close game that the Sacramento Kings undoubtedly felt they should’ve won. They have a chance to make up for that loss, but will have to be better prepared for the Rockets’ back court of John Wall and James Harden, who scored a combined 55 points in Thursday’s win.
