Last night, the Houston Rockets went to Denver, but they left their defense at home like its name was Kevin McAllister. Now they have to hope it caught a connecting flight or something, because they're in Sacramento now for the back end of a road back-to-back, and DeMarcus Cousins is waiting for them.
You may think the Rockets are catching a bit of a break with Rajon Rondo suspended for hurling homophobic slurs at referee Bill Kennedy, but he actually has made the Kings a bit worse, according to his on/off statistics. Backup point guard Darren Collison is no slouch, and the Kings are at full strength otherwise. Sacramento is not a team to be overlooked, no matter what their record is.
So, who thinks the Rockets will show up tonight? I'm not sure.
