With their win vs. the Spurs on Monday, Sacramento has already eclipsed the win total of last year’s 27-55 team. There’s no doubt the Kings are much improved (28-25) but they’re still having a hard time getting respect as +2 point home underdogs on Wednesday.
The Rockets sit at 5th in the Western Conference and have won two in a row coming into the matchup with the Kings. Houston will be playing in their fourth road game since February 1st on Wednesday. Does the fast paced Sacramento style give the home team an edge in this one?
The task for Sacramento is easy to understand but difficult to put into execution – stop James Harden. The Rockets SG has scored at least 30 points in every game since December 11th. Harden has averaged 43.5 ppg the last two outings and went for 34 when the Rockets beat the Kings by 20 earlier in the season.
In that 136-116 win on November 17th, Houston covered at home as -12 favorites. The Kings had the pace working, hoisting up 102 shots but it wasn’t enough as the Rockets shot 56.8% from the field. Chris Paul also added 24 in that game and his return to the lineup has led Houston to just a 2-2 record.
The Rockets are going to be without a lot of the secondary scoring that led them to the win over Sacramento in November. Clint Capela had 23 and 16 vs. the Kings front line but he’s out Wednesday. Eric Gordon also scored 11 points off the bench in that first meeting but he’s questionable tonight with a knee issue.
An area where Houston has gotten better over the past couple weeks is in their front court thanks to the addition of Kenneth Faried. He’s put up a double double in 5 of 6 games and has solidified an atrocious Houston defense that has been lacking since Capela’s injury.
A couple weeks ago Sacramento looked tired and beaten likely as a result of their up-tempo pace for most of the 1st half of the season. The Kings went 2-4 on a 6 game road trip and lost games by 19 to Charlotte, 29 to Brooklyn, and 15 to Toronto.
Since that road swing the Kings have bounced back nicely. They’ve won three in a row at home including the last two over San Antonio and Philadelphia. Sacramento has a 127 and a 135 point outing over that span and it appears they have the offense to hang with Houston in this contest. The O/U is set at a whopping 233.5.
The Kings are definitely on a roll right now but can they get the big win over the Western Conference’s 5th place team. Sacramento sits in 9th in the conference as it is, just 0.5 GB from playoff positioning.

Free Houston Rockets vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Prediction:
Houston doesn’t have much depth with the Gordon and Capela injuries. James Harden will get his 35-40 points tonight but you’re asking a lot of Chris Paul to keep up with the pace of De’Aaron Fox. Faried has been a nice addition, but Sacramento matches up nicely on the blocks with Willie Cauley-Stein and the ever-improving Marvin Bagley III.
