The Houston Rockets go on the road against the Sacramento Kings tonight, and this should be a hotly contested match from start to finish. In the end though, expect James Harden and Dwight Howard to come out on top by at least seven or eight points.
Here is the TV info for that one in case that is what you came to this humble scribe for.

The Rockets are coming off a tough win, and expecting them to cover the spread (-6) in this one despite being on the road.
The recent trade for Rudy Gay makes the Kings more interesting, but people often forget that in basketball chemistry is probably more important than in any other team sport. There are so few players on the court that if there are any issues, then it will become obvious pretty instantly.
Gay may settle in with the Kings sometime next season, but definitely not expecting them to make the playoffs despite this flashy move by a new owner. Bill Simmons definitely called this one ins his preseason previews, and not sure if this will be good for the Kings in the long run. Hopefully they saw something in Gay that nobody else saw and that the forward will have a renaissance in California.
