SACRAMENTO, Calif.– The Houston Rockets arrived in California with back-to-back road games scheduled to open the season. The Sacramento Kings are ready to begin their push for a playoff berth in the rugged Western Conference.
Kings, Head Coach, Dave Joerger tabbed veterans George Hill, Vince Carter and Zach Randolph for leadership of young studs Buddy Hield, Skal Labissiere, Rookies De’Aaron Fox and Justin Jackson.
Rockets, Head Coach, Mike D’Antoni received another Hall of Fame point guard in Chris Paul but CP3 (slight knee injury) struggled in his first meaningful game in a Rockets uniform. James Harden was lethal as usual pumping in 24 points and dishing out 10 assists. The Rockets looked good battling back to secure a 122-121 victory of the Warriors.
