This may be one of the best chances the Detroit Pistons have had for a win in quite some time. They were ok in their loss to the Pacers the other night and hung in for most of the contest. The Rockets also have a poor record away from home and have won just 2 out of 13.

Always tough to pick the result of two struggling sides, but the home side may get this one done.

Prediction – Detroit Pistons (Win) ⭐
