Kings vs. Houston Rockets at a glance

Kings at Rockets

THE PARTICULARS

  • Where: Toyota Center
  • When: Saturday, 5 p.m.
  • TV/radio: CSNCA, 1140
  • Records: Kings 7-13, Rockets 9-11

THREE KEYS

  • 1. 5-on-1: It will take a team effort to contain James Harden. That means players being in the right position to help against him and being ready to cut off the passing lanes.
  • 2. No rest: Dwight Howard will play after sitting out Friday at Dallas. DeMarcus Cousins must attack him from the start.
  • 3. Early energy: The Kings cannot start another game slowly and expect to rally on the road. A first-quarter letdown might be too much to overcome.
