Analysis & Prediction: Rockets vs Pistons 01/12/24

January 12, 2024


Game Preview


On January 12, at Little Caesars Arena, the Detroit Pistons (3-35) will play the Houston Rockets (18-18) in an attempt to snap a 6-game losing streak.


The Houston Rockets, who have lost 3 of their last 4 matches overall, are in a slump. They will be looking to end a 2-game losing streak after losing 124-119 in overtime on the road to the Bulls in their last game. With 25 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 assists, Alperen Sengun commanded the team. Fred VanVleet followed with 20 points and 10 assists, and Jabari Smith Jr. and Jalen Green each scored eighteen points. As a group, the Rockets fired 47% from the field and 11 of 45 from the 3-point line as they demonstrated a lot of battle to return from a 16-point deficit just to let go a 5-point lead in overtime and drop to 3-12 on the road this season. The Rockets can’t take this game for granted as a surprise could be headed their way.



The Detroit Pistons, on the other hand, have dropped 34 of their previous 35 games overall so far and will be looking to snap a 6-game losing streak after suffering a 130-108 defeat in their last game. Bojan Bogdanovic and Jaden Ivey each scored 19 points, Alec Burks added 15 points off the bench, and Jalen Duren commanded the squad with 21 points and 12 rebounds. The Pistons were immediately on the defensive end after being outscored 31-19 in the opening quarter and struggled to find their offensive identity. As a team, they shot 45% from the field and 10 of 32 from three points. With competitors like Killian Hayes registering just 4 points on 2 of 8 shooting and Ausar Thompson achieving just 3 points on 1 of 6 shooting, the Pistons hung around for the majority of the game but were always a step behind.
