Gordon's late basket helps Rockets hold off Kings 118-112

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Christian Wood had 23 points and 14 rebounds, Eric Gordon made a clutch bucket with 12.5 seconds remaining and the Houston Rockets held off the Sacramento Kings 118-112 on Sunday night.

Kevin Porter Jr. added 23 points and seven assists for the Rockets. Garrison Mathews scored 17, while Eric Gordon and Jalen Green had 15 points apiece.

"We were ready to play tonight," Rockets coach Stephen Silas said. "We're not a playoff team yet but when we are this is what it's going to look like. We're trying to learn as many lessons as we can. I was proud of them for that."
