Houston dropped to 28-25 with a loss to the Sacramento Kings on Sunday. The Rockets led by 10 points with 10:07 left in the game after a layup from guard Patrick Beverley. However, Sacramento came back to tie the game five minutes later and took the lead for good on a three-pointer from Isaiah Thomas with 3:15 left.
Guard James Harden led the Rockets on Sunday with 30 points on 10-of-20 shooting, while center Omer Asik had a double-double with 17 points and 12 rebounds. Point guard Jeremy Lin, meanwhile, had just 12 points but shot 5-of-8 from the floor.
The Rockets have lost two of their last three games, with their only win during that stretch a 15-point victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. However, the Warriors could be just the team to get Houston back on track.
Last time the Rockets faced the Warriors, Houston scored 140 points and tied an NBA record with 23 three-pointers. Jeremy Lin led Houston with five made threes, while Harden, forward Chandler Parsons and forward Marcus Morris each had four.
However, that contest came on Houston's home floor. The Rockets have been much less consistent on the road this season. NBA.com notes that Houston has lost nine of its last 12 away from the Toyota Center.
The Warriors will also likely be seeking revenge after some felt the Rockets ran up the score in their previous matchup. As Mercury News reports, Houston continued taking three-point shots even when the game was long decided.
According to Larry Brown Sports, Warriors center Andrew Bogut called out the Rockets on Twitter shortly after the contest. The first letters of the first four words of the tweet in question spelled out a slur.
Jeremy Lin, however, told the Mercury News that he was okay with his team's late-game strategy. However, he did apologize for Beverley's taunt after a dunk late in the fourth quarter.
"The only thing I think we need to apologize for was just the reaction after the dunk," Lin said. "To be honest, that wasn't totally classy on our behalf."
Houston, of course, has its own reason to be mad at the Warriors. As Yahoo! Sports notes, Golden State players intentionally fouled members of the Rockets late in the fourth quarter to prevent the team from breaking the NBA record.
