The Houston Rockets will be taking on the Pistons at home as they fight to keep their winning streak alive.

The Houston Rockets are going for lucky number 7 tonight. The team still leads the western conference and in the last 10 games have only lost one (9-1).

This team is dominant, another plus is that Coach D’Antoni is continuously rotating the lineup which means every player get comfortable with one another out on the court.

On the other hand, the Pistons’ record is 32-39.

Even though the Pistons are under .500, Andre Drummond and Blake Griffin will be a handful for Houston’s front court. Reggie Jackson returned Tuesday for the first time since December and he played solid in limited minutes.

In Jackson’s first game back, the Pistons crushed the Suns on Tuesday 115-88.

Will that momentum carry over?

Doubtful. The Rockets have been consistently hot this season and are believed to be the only team that can give the Warriors a run for their money.

The Houston Rockets have solidified their strategy by taking advantage of their three-point shooters on offense and their all-around defense. This will come in handy against the Pistons.

Griffin scored 26 points while 5 other Pistons finished in double figures in Detroit’s last game. If the Rockets don’t contain the Pistons early, it could be a close game.

Injuries/Rosters

Chris Paul is questionable for tonight’s game due to hamstring soreness. With CP3 out, Eric Gordon is likely to start for the Rockets tonight. Eric Gordon scored 18 points against the Trail Blazers on Tuesday. Hopefully, that will carry into tonight’s game. Brandan Wright is still out with a sore knee.

Next: Mike D’Antoni calls James Harden the best offensive player he’s seen

For the Pistons, Jon Leuer is out due to left ankle surgery.
