On Tuesday, the Houston Rockets goes to Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California to face the Sacramento Kings. Tip-off is set at 10PM ET.
The Rockets are on the road to seek their 10th win in their last 11 games. However, they will also try to avoid losing the season series against the Sacramento Kings. Houston's eight game win streak was snapped by Golden State after they were limited to a season-low 36.6 field goal shooting.
Following their loss to the Warriors, the Rockets regrouped and eked out a 115-112 win over the Suns last Sunday. Houston won the last season match up against the Kings, 119-98 last January 22. However, Sacramento won the first two in this four game season series.
The Kings are definitely out of the playoffs this season since they have the second worst record in the Western Conference. However, this team will still play passionately and should not be taken for granted by its opponents.
The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Houston Rockets as a 4-point favorite to beat the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night.
