Rockets vs Kings Preview
Houston Rockets are doing well in Orlando with three wins and just a defeat under their belt.
2019-20 NBA MVP finalist James Harden has been lighting it up in Orlando. He has averaged 33.8 points, 9 assists and 7.5 rebounds in his four seeding games.
Rockets have momentum on their side with their win against Lakers. Moreover, they have had two days off after their last game and would be very well rested and raring to go. Austin Rivers, PJ Tucker and Covington have been providing great support to both Harden and Westbrook on both ends of the court.
Mathematically Kings are still in the race of playoffs, but a defeat in today’s game, or a win for Blazers today against Sixers will end their 2019-20 NBA season.
Kings star rookie De’Aaron has given Kings’ fans some entertainment, he has been averaging 27.5 points in Orlando.
Harrison Barnes and Bogdan Bogdanovic have to produce something magical if they want to get past James Harden and co. Kings season restart has been disappointing, as the side lost four games, winning only one.
Rockets have an easy fixture and they are the favorites for the game, they will not take Kings lightly as today’s game will have a major impact on their playoff positioning.
