Who’s Playing

Houston @ Sacramento

Current Records: Houston 12-31; Sacramento 17-27

What to Know

This Friday, the Houston Rockets are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 116.56 points per game. Their road trip will continue as they head to Golden 1 Center at 10 p.m. ET on Friday to face off against the Sacramento Kings. The Rockets aren’t expected to win, but seeing as the odds didn’t stop them last game, maybe the squad has another upset up their sleeve.

It was a close one, but on Wednesday Houston sidestepped the San Antonio Spurs for a 128-124 win. Among those leading the charge for Houston was shooting guard Eric Gordon, who shot 6-for-7 from beyond the arc and finished with 31 points.

Meanwhile, Sacramento beat the Los Angeles Lakers 125-116 on Wednesday. Sacramento’s power forward Harrison Barnes was one of the most active players for the team, picking up 23 points in addition to seven boards.

Their wins bumped Houston to 12-31 and Sacramento to 17-27. Expect the scorekeeper to be kept busy: if their previous games are any indication, the Rockets and the Kings will really light up the scoreboard.
