Rockets: F James Ennis, who had been questionable with a strained right hamstring, returned after missing the previous 10 games. The Kings, who have been a pleasant surprise this season, got an efficient 29-point production from shooting guard Buddy Hield.

Pavard helped his country win the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation and scored goal of the tournament, against Argentina.

Following an outstanding debut season in Germany's upper tier, Pavard has struggled this term, just like Stuttgart.

Pavard has been linked with numerous clubs since his eye-catching performances in Russian Federation, with Bayern rumoured to be interested in signing him immediately after the tournament.

The club have also been linked with Atletico defender Lucas Hernandez and Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.
