The Kings will close out 2020 and ring in 2021 against the same opponent.
Sacramento will face James Harden and the Houston Rockets on Thursday night at Toyota Center. Then, after taking New Year's Day off, the Kings and Rockets will meet again Saturday afternoon in Houston.
Coach Luke Walton's Kings has opened the season 3-2 after notching impressive wins over the Phoenix Suns and the Denver Nuggets. The Kings have been firing on all cylinders, led by De'Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield and impressive rookie Tyrese Haliburton.
The Rockets, on the other hand, are off to an 1-2 start and still trying to navigate Harden's trade request.
Houston took the first game of the weekend's "doubleheader" 122-119 on the strength of 33 points from Harden and some hot shooting down the stretch.
