[10:30 PM] Rockets @ Kings

Who will WIN this matchup?

Houston Rockets (9-6)

@ Sacramento Kings (6-9)


James Harden committed a season-worst 12 turnovers in Wednesday’s 115-102 home loss to the Toronto Raptors, and his 5.8 average is the worst in the NBA. The other parts of Harden’s game are just fine as he ranks fourth in the NBA in scoring at 28.5 points and leads the league in assists at 12.5.

Sacramento is looking for its first three-game winning streak after beating the Raptors and the Oklahoma City Thunder in its last two contests.

Houston committed a season-worst 28 turnovers against Toronto to see a three-game winning streak come to an end, and forward Ryan Anderson was miffed over some of the miscues. Harden contributed 29 points and 15 assists and he has handed out 15 or more assists six times this season.

Center DeMarcus Cousins is on a roll with four straight double-doubles and he registered 36 points and 13 rebounds in the win over the Thunder. Cousins, who ranks sixth in the NBA with a 27.5 scoring average, topped 30 points in three of the past five games and six times this season.

The Rockets won eight of the past nine meetings.
