It’s week one of the NBA Season and the best part of a new season is that all teams feel like they have a chance to have a good year this year.
On Wednesday night it’s a Western conference showdown at the Golden 1 Center. The Houston Rockets make the trip to take on the Sacramento Kings.
The Rockets have won the last five games played between the two teams.
The Houston Rockets had a busy off season, and they feel like they finally have a team that can really compete with the Golden State Warriors this year.
This team still of course has James Harden who is one of the best guards in the league, but they also added Chris Paul.
These are both guards who like to have the ball in their hands, so how they play together will be something to really watch closely.
If James Harden can accept playing off the ball this should be a decent fit, but if he needs the ball in his hands to opporate the coaching staff is going to have to find a way to get it to work.
This Rockets team is still going to run, and that is how they need to attack this game. They need to try and get up and down the court and get this game into a shootout.
The Kings probably won’t be able to keep up in a shootout, so the higher the scoring the game, the better their chances.
The Rockets will be playing the Warriors on Tuesday night so this will be the second game of a back to back which is something to really watch for.
For the Sacramento Kings they are still going through a rebuild, but this team is young, and has some good young players who should be fun to watch.
They drafted De’Aaron Fox from Kentucky who has looked really good through the Summer League and Preseason. He is really quick on both ends of the floor, and he is known as a really good defender.
They are going to need him to play really good defense in this one, on James Harden or Chris Paul, whichever one he is matched up on.
The Kings need to make sure they take away at least one of those guys if they want to win this game. They also need to try and slow down the pace.
This team is young and most young teams like to run, which might be their best style this season, but it’s not going to be in this game.
They need to slow down the game and try to turn it into a half court game.
