The 11-12 Pistons are in Texas to take on the 13-10 Houston Rockets. The Rockets, who are playing well of late just came off a 101-88 loss at Toronto on Sunday, it was only the team’s second defeat in seven games.
Lucky for Detroit Trevor Ariza, the team’s second-leading scorer, will miss this game after being suspended for swinging his arm at Raptors forward DeMar DeRozan following a steal.
“No Gordon or Bynum tonight, Kuester says. That probably means no tomorrow, either. Maybe Friday in OKC for Gordon, at least? We’ll see.” Via @DETPistons
