Watch Rockets vs Pistons: How to Live Stream, TV Channel, Wednesday NBA Game Start Time
Until the 1st trimester
The Detroit Pistons came in as an underdog but currently have the Houston Rockets on a shocked alert. It’s anyone’s game after a quarter, but Detroit leads 23-21.
The Pistons enjoyed the tag team combination of forward Jerami Grant and center Isaiah Stewart. The first has eight points with one block, while the second has zero points in addition to four boards and one block. Houston relied on the performance of power forward Christian Wood, who has seven points.
Detroit’s lead doesn’t mean much as they have only won 25% of the games they are up in at the end of the first quarter. In fact, it’s – oddly enough – worse than their overall winning percentage of 11%. We will see how things unfold.

Current records: Detroit 1-8; Houston 1-9
What there is to know
The Detroit Pistons have enjoyed the comforts of home in their last three games, but now they have to hit the road. After a few days off for both teams, they and the Houston Rockets will meet again at 7:30 p.m. ET on November 10 at Toyota Center. Since both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a bit of extra motivation ahead of this game.
Everything was tied 39-39 at halftime, but the Pistons weren’t quite tied with the Brooklyn Nets in the second half when they met last week. Detroit was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap as they lost 96-90 to the Nets. Little forward Josh Jackson had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with just seven points on a 3-on-10 shot during his 31 minutes on the pitch.
Meanwhile, Houston received a heavy blow on Sunday as they lost 120-107 to the Golden State Warriors. Houston was down 103-83 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too hard to recover. Small forward Jae’Sean Tate (21 points) was Houston’s top scorer.
Detroit should lose this next by 3. Those who bet on them ATS shouldn’t have high expectations for them since the team is 2-6 ATS when they should lose.
The losses put the Pistons at 1-8 and the Rockets at 1-9. A pair of numbers to keep in mind before kick-off: Detroit enters the game with 19.9 fouls drawn per game on average, good for fourth-best in the league. But Houston is even better: They enter the competition with the most fouls drawn per game in the league at 22.1. Be prepared to familiarize yourself with the team of officials.
