Teams trending in opposition directions meet as the Houston Rockets take on the Detroit Pistons on Monday.
Houston has won back to back games, while the Pistons have dropped 3 straight.
It’s no secret what needs to happen for the Rockets to succeed.
Houston goes, as James Harden goes.
The star SG is putting up exceptional numbers every night as the Rockets have won back to back games. Harden is nearly putting up triple doubles every single night.
Leading the league with an average of 12.5 per game, Harden is also averaging 28.7 points per game to go along with nearly 8 rebounds.
This Houston team feeds off the energy of Harden and it’s showing in the play of players like Clint Capela, Eric Gordon, and Patrick Beverley.
The Pistons are happy to endure a long home-stand.
Detroit did drop the opener of what is a 5 game home-stand, but they are still playing their best basketball inside The Palace. Detroit is still 5-1 at home despite the loss, while outscoring the opponents by an average of 101-87.
The Pistons lead the league in games played, which certainly has taken a toll on them.
Head coach Stan Van Gundy has tried tinkering with the lineup to provide some sort of spark, but nothing has worked as of late.
The bench is one of the places where the Pistons just simply have to improve. It had just 13 points on 5 of 21 shooting last time out, the main reason for the Pistons losing.
Detroit did sweep the season series last season and are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings with Houston.
