The Detroit Pistons are very much in rebuild mode in 2021, but they did manage to pick up a victory in their last game and will now look to carry that momentum over into this Friday’s matchup with the slumping Houston Rockets.
That last game against the Toronto Raptors was quite good with with the Pistons holding the Raptors shooters in check and dominating the boards out rebounding the Raptors by 20. That is a recipe for success in most games, and they should have a decent enough matchup individually for the Pistons to once again have success on the boards with Christian Wood being eased back into things following an injury.
Saddiq Bey had 28 points in that game and this guy has kind of come out of nowhere to be a big time contributor following the trade of the starting point guard D-Rose. The Pistons have been really bad this year, obviously, but they do play some decent enough defense ranking 13th overall in the league and that can help them steal a game here and there.
Christian Wood did make his return in this team’s last game, but once again it did not make a difference, as the Houston Rockets dropped their 18th straight game. Wood did only play 26 minutes in that game, and he did look like his old self putting up 26 total points which will be music to Rockets fans ears, as they need something to cheer for and the rockets did not look awful while Wood was still around.
With the way this season has ended up going the Houston Rockets are also in rebuilding mode and thus have traded one of their veteran players P.J. Tucker to Milwaukee, so he will not be available for this matchup with the Pistons. He is a loss too, as P.J. Tucker was a decent force on the interior and could be counted on to knock down the deep ball from time to time and I can’t a imagine a veteran like Tucker hurt to have in the locker room either.
The Rockets do come into this game with some other key injuries as well with John Wall being confirmed as out here to go along with the injury of Eric Gordon and a host of others.
Free Detroit Pistons vs. Houston Rockets NBA Prediction:
The Detroit Pistons have remained pretty competitive this year and I do not think a completely depleted Houston Rockets team will be able to beat them. Christian Wood might look to be a big factor in a ”revenge game”, but I am pretty sure the coaches are going to continue being smart with him and only giving him sub 30 minutes of floor time down the stretch.
I also like the looks of Saddiq Bey and think he has an A+ matchup here against the Rockets wing defenders, so I would not be surprised to see him have yet another big game.
