Jeremy Lin and the Houston Rockets face the Sacramento Kings on Sunday night. The game will be broadcast live locally at 9 p.m. ET, and you can also watch a live TV stream online for free here. But please, click on that link at your own risk.

Houston is coming off a 118-103 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. Guard James Harden led the Rockets with 35 points on 13-of-16 shooting and also added 11 assists. In fact, four out of Houston's five starters scored in double figures, including 20 points from forward Chandler Parsons and 16 from guard Jeremy Lin.

In fact, all five of Houston's starters have reached double figures in eight games this season, including three of the last five.  Earlier this season, the five starters each scored 10 points or more in three straight games from November 23 to December 1. It was the first time that had happened for the Rockets since the 2011 season.

Harden has been particularly strong offensive during this Houston run. The guard has shot 56.3 percent from the field over Houston's last eight games, according to NBA.com. The Rockets have won six of those contests.

However, the guard has struggled somewhat against the Kings as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder. Harden averages just 11.4 points per game against the Thunder, his worst numbers against any NBA team.

While Jeremy Lin has not been as potent offensively as he was during his breakout 2012 season, the point guard has still made plays on the court over the last few games. Lin hit a career-high five threes during the Rockets record-setting victory over the Golden State Warriors last week.

Jeremy Lin has also been a key defender for the Rockets this season. The guard has recorded three or more steals in 17 games this season, most on the team. He also has had at least eight assists and three steals in seven contests, with Houston going 5-2 in those games.

The Kings, meanwhile, sit in fourth place in the Pacific Division despite a victory over the Utah Jazz on Saturday night. Point guard Isaiah Thomas led Sacramento with 25 points in that contest, while center DeMarcus Cousins had a double-double with 13 points and 11 rebounds.

The Rockets swept the season series from the Kings last year. In the last of those three matchups, Houston won by 17 points at Sleep Train Arena. Forward Patrick Patterson had a double-double off the bench for Houston with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Kings point guard Jimmer Fredette led Sacramento starters with 17 points on 7-of-15 shooting.
