On the last game of the season the Houston Rockets depended only on themselves to advance for post season. Standing in their way just a heavily shorthanded Sacramento Kings. Rockets did their part and set up a very anticipated WCF rematch with the Warriors.
With the Sacramento Kings deciding to rest (?) Rudy Gay, Rajon Rondo, Marco Belinelli, DeMarcus Cousins and Omri Casspi in the last game of the season, let’s be honest: this game was just a formality. The Houston Rockets were handed their spot in the post season and completely demolished the “Sacramento Kings” from the get-go.
The Kings suited up only 7 players for this game.
Utah Jazz’s fans and players should probably be livid with the Kings by now with their decision. Even though to be fair the Los Angeles Clippers pulled off the same stuff, playing without 5 starters and ended up winning the game against the Jazz last week.
The Houston Rockets end up with a .500 record and the opportunity to face off against arguably one of the best team’s in NBA history in the first round of the playoffs – with no home advantage.
It’s “All In” Mode now Red Nation.
