David Hardisty

FINAL: Rockets 102, Kings 89. Harden struggles shooting, but posts 26p-8a-7r-3blk-2stl. Career-highs Canaan (24p), D-Mo (21p). Rockets 12-3!

James Ham

Eric Moreland makes his professional debut for the Sacramento Kings.

Jonathan Feigen

Kings had everything going their way, but the Rockets had their two stars -- Motiejunas and Canaan. Career high for both.

Bill Herenda

Two good looks for Casspi to no avail but Kings still in to down 8 2:16 to go #SacKings #KingsTalk @CSNAuthentic

Bill Herenda

Old school sky hook by D-Mo i.e. Motiejunas but McLemore answers Kings down 90-83 3:18 Q4 #SacKings #KingsTalk @CSNAuthentic

Tom Ziller

Harden finally hits one via having no Kings within two counties of him.

Bill Herenda

Gorgeous high low Thomspson to Couisins 83-79 Kings cut lead to 4

Howard Chen

Cousins is now back. Without him, this Kings' team is starkly different on both ends of the floor.

James Ham

Houston still with only 4 turnovers. Kings with 15.

Bill Herenda

Kings trailing 81-77 9:12 to go in 4th. Defensive stops & trust O paramount the rest of way 4 Sac #NBA #SacKings #KingsTalk @CSNAuthentic

Jonathan Feigen

I stand corrected. Cousins sits. Kings immediately go to Carl Landry.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets lead 77-73 heading into 4th. Have some time before Kings in bonus, go to hack-a-Joey/Tarik. First few minutes with Cousins in key.

James Ham

Kings trail 77-73 going the fourth.

Jason Jones

Kings down 77-73 headed to the fourth quarter. Cousins has 23 points, 14 rebounds, 4 assists.

David Hardisty

After the Kings intentionally fouled Dorsey twice and he missed 4 straight free throws, McHale calls timeout just to get Joey out of there.

Jason Jones

Dorsey missed both again. Kings down 75-73 and McHale calls timeout to get Dorsey out after a Kings miss.

Jonathan Feigen

Cousins was chasing Garcia into the corner. No reason with Kings fouling. Stopped to complain to Zach Zarba. Staying in the game.

Bill Herenda

Cousins holding right know as #Kings trail #Rockets by 2 75-73 with 44.5 seconds left in Q3 #NBA #SacKings #KingsTalk

Cousins stayed down in the corner during a Kings time out, walks very carefull to bench.

Jonathan Feigen

Kings go to a hack-a-Joey. Could be a long night.

Bill Herenda

Canaan has been huge for Houston with 19 pts thus far Kings trailing 73-66 Q3 2:12 #NBA #SacKings #KingsTalk @CSNAuthentic @CSNKings

Bill Herenda

After 9 1st qtr turnovers, Kings with only 6 blunders since #NBA #SacKings #KingsTalk @CSNAuthentic @CSNKings

Sean Cunningham

Kings within 2 again in Houston.

Jason Jones

But the Kings can't stop Isaiah Canaan who now has 16 points. Rockets lead 68-60.

Bill Herenda

The Kings resilience is admirable -shorthanded trailed by many as 22 pts in 1st half but battling in Houston down 5 7:18 Q3 #NBA #SacKings

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets 1 of 13 to end the first half and start the second in 15-3 Kings run to within 2.

James Ham

Kings have a chance to take the lead. Brick the dunk. Give up the 3-ball. Huge swing.

Bill Herenda

Good point @Bobby Jackson Kings must limit TOs vs Hou D -2nd in #NBA in PTs allowed & FG%A #Rockets #SacKings #KingsTalk

Only 4 #Kings turnovers in Q2 Sac trailed by as many as 22 in 1st 1/2 down 57-50 to #Rockets #NBA #SacKings #KingsTalk

Kings 11 of 17 in 2nd quarter. Rockets have no one to match up w/ Cousins with Howard out. Black, Dorsey with 3 fouls each and 3 rebs total.

Bill Herenda

#Kings bounce in Q2 outscoring #Rockets 31-20 & trail by only 7 at 1/2 57-50 Sac +8 on glass #NBA #SacKings #KingsTalk

Kings trail by 7 at the break 57-50. Disastrous half by Sacramento saved by a late run. If they value the ball, they have a shot to win.

Sean Cunningham

From down 22, to down 7, Kings trail Rockets 57-50. 14pts, 7rebs for DeMarcus Cousins. James Harden game-high 15pts. #NBAKings #Rockets
