After picking up their first victory of the season, the Houston Rockets will look to make it two straight wins in an afternoon showdown against the Sacramento Kings. Thursday night, the Rockets defeated the Kings 122-119. James Harden scored 16 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter, while John Wall added in 22 points in his official debut.

Prior to the game, Eric Gordon was listed as probable with knee soreness, but Stephen Silas said he will be available for today’s match. Gordon will start in place of Harden — who is out due to an ankle injury.
