Houston Rockets vs Detroit Pistons
NBA Regular Season
HOU VS DET MATCH PREVIEW:
Houston Rockets host Detroit Pistons in NBA action on Friday (IST) at Toyota Center, Houston.
Rockets are first in the Western Conference heading into this match, four wins better than 2nd placed Golden State Warriors, and with just handful of games remaining in the regular season, it's fair to say Houston would end the season as conference champions.
Detroit Pistons, on the other hand, are 9th in the Eastern Conference. Their NBA Playoff hopes have been dashed by their dismal run after they lost 8 straight games in March. The Bad Boys are 5 games worse off than Milwaukee Bucks who are 8th, so they need to win all their matches while Bucks need to suffer a meltdown if Pistons are to catch them. But that looks quite improbable.
When: March 23, 05:30 AM IST
Where: Toyota Center, Houston
Form of the Team-
James Harden's team has won 23 of their last 24 games, and the solo defeat came against Eastern Conference leaders Toronto Raptors on 10th March. Since then, Rockets have won have won six straight games, and will be aiming for a 7th straight win against visitors in this match.
James Harden once again made his case for the best NBA player this season after he touched the magical 40-point mark in the win against Portland Trail Blazers. so Pistons' guard needs to be on their toes if they want to come out of Toyota Center unscathed.
As a team, Rockets are averaging 113.7 points per game, which is the 2nd best record in NBA this season.
Meanwhile, Detroit Pistons snapped their 8 games losing streak with a 106-90 win over Sacramento Kings which was followed by a magnificent 115-88 defeat of Phoenix Suns. So the points are there in Pistons' team and the likes of Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond need to be consistent if Pistons aim for playoff spots.
