The Houston Rockets went to Motown to face the Detroit Pistons at the Palace looking to extend their win streak to three games. The highlight or low light of the game was an overall ridiculous and shameful presentation by Clutch City’s squad in the first half against the NBA’s worst shooting team. In the end, the performance of the Piston stars (specifically Andre Drummond and Reggie Jackson) out shone the Rockets as they easily snapped their losing streak.
Whether the team was fatigued from last night’s overtime game or just had an unfortunate night it’s hard to figure out. What’s plainly evident once again is the Rockets quizzical habit of just “forgetting about it” when things gets tough.
Here is the final score and player grades.
