Rockets are now 3-1 since starting action back up in the NBA bubble coming into their matchup versus the Kings on Sunday Night.
Sacramento finally picked up their first win of bubble play against the Pelicans on Thursday before losing on the back end of a back to back against Brooklyn on Friday.
Houston returns to play after a statement win over a Lebronless Lakers. Westbrook sat out the win and is going to rest up again on Sunday before their next game with the San Antonio Spurs.
James Harden has continued rolling right into bubble play as he is the second-highest average scorer since play restarted right behind Dallas Big Man Kristaps Porzingas. He’s averaging 33.4 points per game in the last 5 games and try to do more damage tonight.
Rockets will be without all-star point guard Russel Westbrook, but still, have enough firepower to handle to Kings if need be.
Houston is the second highest-scoring offense in the league averaging 118.35 points per game while giving up 114.39 points.
With a loss here to tonight against Houston, the Kings will be eliminated from playoff contention in the bubble. They are 3.5 games back of the Grizzlies for the eighth spot and two games back of the Blazers for the ninth play-in spot.
De’Aaron Fox has struggled in the bubble only eclipsing the 20 point mark twice since the restart and will have to get things cooking for the Kings to have a chance to sneak into that nine seed.
Sacramento matches up great with the rockets as they are a high paced scoring team and with Westbrook sitting out tonight the Kings have a large advantage in the speed section of the game.
Kings are averaging 109.67 points per game which ranks 23rd in the league. On the defensive side of the ball, they are surrendering 111.63 points per game.

Free Houston Rockets vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Prediction:
This game features one of the scrappy young teams against one of the favorites to win the NBA Finals.
Both are going to be slightly short-handed in this one. This is the end of the season, and both of these teams are just trying to carry some momentum into the playoffs. Key players will be missing from both teams, but the Clippers can afford that much more than the Nets can.
