Kings look to bounce back vs. Rockets

Feb 13, 2007 - 4:57 PM Sacramento (22-27) at Houston (32-18) 8:30 pm EST

HOUSTON (Ticker) - The Sacramento Kings would like to bounce back from a small bump in the road.

The Kings are in search of their sixth win in seven games when they face off against superstar Tracy McGrady and the Houston Rockets.

Sacramento was riding a season-high five-game winning streak until Sunday's 114-103 home loss to the Seattle SuperSonics.

Houston is coming off its third win in four games, a 104-83 triumph over the Charlotte Bobcats on Saturday.

Rockets center Dikembe Mutombo seems to have found the fountain of youth since the loss of All-Star center Yao Ming, who remains sidelined with a fractured leg.

"To see how (Dikembe's) grinding through these games and these minutes against front-line players is inspiring," Houston coach Jeff Van Gundy said.

The 40-year-old Mutombo is averaging 11.3 rebounds in 23 games, while McGrady has reached the 30-point plateau 12 times since the loss of Yao.

On January 13, McGrady netted a season-best 45 points to carry Houston to a 115-111 overtime victory at Sacramento.
