The Kings visit Houston for a game both teams want to lose. Who wants it more? Or who wants it less? These are not good lineups for various reasons, but the main one is, the players in them aren’t very good. In the Rockets case, those players are likely to become good, and Harrison Barnes, to be fair, is already quite good, as is JaeSean Tate in a proper role. The Kings can expect some more growth from Davion Mitchell, and the Rockets are going to play a lot of rookies.

Your recap may be later tonight, due to life also happening. The excitement of reading a recap about a contest both teams’ management want to lose is hard to contain, I realize, but try.
