Summer League game thread: Rockets take on the Sacramento Kings

The Rockets look to get their first win of the summer season today in Vegas.

The Rockets dropped their Summer League opener to the Atlanta Hawks, but have another chance to put one in the win column in today's matchup against the the Sacramento Kings.

Leading scorer Sam Dekker tweaked an ankle in the second half against the Hawks, and though he is expected to play, it remains to be seen what effect the sprain will have on his performance.

Other items to watch for are the play of the point guards. Gary Payton II outdid Isaiah Taylor in the opener, though neither guy was at the top of their game. And can Kyle Wiltjer keep up his shooting? The young forward hit 3 triples against Atlanta.

Chinanu Onuaku struggled in game one, so look to see if he appears any more comfortable in today's contest.

Tip off is 6:30pm EST / 5:30pm CST
