The 23-35 #Pistons are Houston to take on the 39-19 Rockets Saturday night. The Rockets are on a roll, having won 10 of their last 12 games and have won seven straight against the Pistons on their home court.
The good: You can see that this team is playing much better lately, they just need to learn to finish off games.
The bad: The last time these two teams met Dwight Howard had a monster game putting up 35 points with 19 boards. Remember the days when Sheed played Howard so well he was barley noticeable on the floor?
The unknown: Can Andre Drummond show that he’s improved since the last time he met Howard? Will Detroit’s defense be able to hold off Houston, who are averaging 114 points per game while shooting lights out from behind the arc?
Pistons: Chauncey Billups (left knee surgery) is out.
Rockets: Greg Smith is out.
James Harden is probable.
Stat: The Pistons are 4-17 against Western Conference opponents.
Tip off is at 8:00 pm and will be broadcast on Fox Sports Detroit . If you can’t catch the game on TV, catch it on the radio over at 97.1 The Ticket.
