The Rockets have yet to win a game and are playing in their home opener. Five points seemed like a lot to pay upfront so you could look to take them late in the game down by a few points to get more value. The 1st quarter went back and forth with a few different lead changes. The Kings ended the quarter with a 1 point lead and their lead maxed out at 4 points. Not much changed in the second quarter with a few more lead changes. The first half ended with a Rockets 4 point lead.

The Rockets didn’t give up their lead in the 3rd quarter. The Rocket lead maxed out at 10 points and the quarter ended with the Rockets up by 1. The Kings went on another run early in the fourth quarter and held the lead for a while. The King lead maxed out at 7 points three different times. The Rockets went on a run of their own to end the quarter. The Rocket lead maxed out at 6 points and the game ended with a 3 point lead.
