Rockets look to bounce back against lowly Cavs

The Houston Rockets offered a familiar refrain late Monday, one often uttered by veteran teams that occasionally lose focus during the monotonous grind of an 82-game, six-month regular season.

The Sacramento Kings played with more verve at Toyota Center and were rewarded for their effort, squeezing out a 119-118 victory when Nemanja Bjelica drilled a 33-footer at the final buzzer. Sacramento had played the previous night in Dallas and last Friday in San Antonio in the first leg of the Texas triangle yet attacked the Rockets with boundless and ceaseless energy.

Houston led by 11 points in the second quarter yet allowed the Kings to snap a 10-game losing skid at Toyota Center. Now the Rockets must travel to Cleveland to face the scuffling Cavaliers Wednesday at Quicken Loans Arena saddled by this truth: they gave away the previous game.
