Jason Jones

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

James Ham

Cousins was limping the play before. Tweaked his getting manhandled on a loose ball. Cousins not happy with Joey Dorsey.

Jason Jones

Cousins stays in the game. The city of Sacramento smiles.

Jason Jones

Meanwhile we're going to see if Joey Dorsey can miss two more free throws.

Bill Herenda

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

He's limping off the court now but looks like he'll be OK.

James Ham

Cousins is down holding his right knee.

James Ham

Move to foul Dorsey pays off. Misses both. Malone playing chess.

Jason Jones

Cousins banged his knee really hard on that fall. Hobbled down the court and fell down again on the baseline

Jason Jones

HACK-A-DORSEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jason Jones

Canaan has all of Harden's shot-making ability at the moment.

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

James Ham

Ray McCallum is in for Ramon Sessions.

Sean Cunningham

ohhhhh......Ramon Sessions....

Jason Jones

I think the cold breeze in here got a hold of that Sessions shot.

Sean Cunningham

Kings within 2 again in Houston.

James Ham

18 points, 11 rebounds for Cousins. Another double-double.

Jason Jones

James Harden is shooting 5-for-20, just one assist since the first quarter.

Jason Jones

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

Jason Jones

Former King Joey Dorsey (remember him) will take his turn on Cousins. Rockets can't stop him and will throw everyone at him.

Bill Herenda

Houston shorthanded as well sans Howard, Beverly & Jones #NBA #SacKings @CSNAuthentic @CSNKings

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

James Ham

DeMarcus Cousins is 1 rebound away from his 8th straight double-double and 12th in 15 games this season.

Jason Jones

Rockets call a timeout up 60-58.

James Ham

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

Dave Mason

Hahah McLemore checked by the rim! #shaqtin

James Ham

Nice awareness by Ben McLemore. Goes up for rebound, misses, but flies out to guard 3-ball by Harden.

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 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

Jason Jones

Kings have trailed by as many as 22. harden has 15 points, 5 assists for Houston.

Jason Jones

Kings down 57-50 at half. Fortunate considering the horrible start. 14 points and 7 rebounds for Cousins, 10 points for Casspi.

Sean Cunningham

Kings have battled back to cut the Houston lead to 7. 59 secs left in the first half. #NBAKings

James Ham

Sacramento is right back in this game. Down 8 at 57-49 with 1:05 left in the half.

James Ham

Ramon Sessions needs to have his hands checked for butter at halftime.

Sean Cunningham

Omri Casspi and Trevor Ariza exchange words and went nose to nose. Casspi the former Rocket making his first trip back to Houston.

Bill Herenda

Casspi & Ariza double T jawing at each other & Cousins playing peacemaker #NBA #SacKings #KingsTalk @CSNAuthentic

Dave Mason

Cousins scares the crap out of me when he runs over to play peacemaker

Jason Jones

We've got #beef between Casspi and Ariza. Double techs and life goes on.

James Ham

Omri Casspi and Trevor Ariza are jawing at each other. Double-tech.

Jason Jones

Houston's first turnover comes with 3:09 left in the first half. Kings have 13.

Bill Herenda

#Kings rallying via 10-2 run to cut lead to 11 v #Rockets 54-43 3:19 Q2 #NBA #SacKings #KingsTalk @CSNAuthentic

As bad as the Kings have played, they're only down 54-33, 3:19 before half.

Dave Mason

Sessions just scored with that square ball!!

Bill Herenda

Svelte & sinewy Cousins w/finish and 3 pt play old fashioned way pop, #Kings down 54-39 to #Rockets #NBA #SacKings #KingsTalk

Cousins saws through the triple-team for the And-1. Things getting chippy underneath the basket.

Sean Cunningham

Jerry Reynolds on Ramon Sessions "He's playing like the ball is square." Well said. #NBAKings

Bill Herenda

. @Bobby Jackson with another salient point on transition D - #Rockets 12 fast break pts #NBA #SacKings #KingsTalk
