Pistons-Rockets Preview

The Houston Rockets will be at The Palace of Auburn Hills to square off against the Detroit Pistons. With a 13-15 record, the Pistons need to win games more consistently to make a playoff push. Entering the game with a 17-10 record, the Rockets have won their fair share of games. This game has a start time of 7:30 pm EST and CSN-HOU and FSN-DET+ will be providing coverage of the contest.

The Pistons are expecting better results after their 116-106 loss to the Bobcats. Brandon Jennings was the team's high scorer, cashing in 26. Meanwhile, the Rockets are feeling some disappointment after the blowout 114-81 loss to the Pacers. Houston still lost despite the best effort of Dwight Howard, who recorded his 17th double-double of the season with 19 points and 12 rebounds.

It could be a mistake-prone game for the Houston offense, which ranks 28th in the league in ball security (TO% of 16.4%). They'll be facing the disruptive Detroit defense, which forces the fifth-most turnovers in the NBA (23.0%).
