The Kings are well out of it and playing to see what they have for the future. The concern is that it is not all that much. They did make a deal at the deadline acquiring Iman Shumpert. Given he is out for the season it hardly has an impact on this team right now.
Houston is in great shape and knows exactly what it has. It might be able to catch the Warriors atop the conference but just as important is being healthy for when the playoffs begin.
The Kings have lost back to back games but at least they covered at Minnesota. They play at Dallas and then travel to Houston for this one so it could be an ugly result on a back to back.
I am not sure it can be a winning combo but the Kings are trying to figure out what a backcourt of De’Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield might be able to do. I like Fox but he doesn’t shoot well enough and Hield is not the bomber he was at the college level. That duo is limited.
You could say the same thing about the Kings inside players. Willie Cauley-Stein and Kostos Koufos and Jakarr Sampson. They have their moments but they are neither great specialists or generalists. They are limited.
This team continues to be in a run and there is nobody on the roster who is obviously leading the way out. They probably could have dealt more than they did at the deadline too.
This is not a good road team but they actually have a solid record in back to back road tilts, they are 3-2 ATS when playing on the road with no rest.
Houston is also playing Tuesday night. This will be just the second time that they have gone from away to home on zero days rest and the other time they didn’t cover. Even though they have a great won-loss record they are just a .500 team against the number this season.
I have not broken out what the number look like when James Harden and Chris Paul are on the court together but the straight up numbers are stupid good. They don’t actually need both of their stars to beat the lowly Kings but their presence is why that is such a high spread.
The Rockets will be playing Minnesota the game before and that game is certainly going to take precedence over this one. They have not been very good in situations where they are expected to cover huge numbers though. They have not covered a number over 14 points all season long.

Free Sacramento Kings vs. Houston Rockets NBA Prediction:
The numbers in games with big lines speak for themselves and this is not a good spot coming back home, likely tired, against an uninspiring team.
It is easy to see how the Rockets could go through the motions in this one.

I can see both teams being a little burnt for this one. That could keep the scoring down in an easy Houston win.
