James Harden had a huge night with 41 points on 10-of-20 shooting plus a perfect 19-of-19 at the charity stripe. He added nine assists, seven rebounds and four steals.

He also had 11 rebounds and four assists, but did commit nine turnovers. Andre Drummond chipped in with 20 points and 11 rebounds. Langston Galloway had 13 points and two rebounds off the bench.

NBA Betting Trends

Houston

The under is 5-0 in the last five Rockets road games. Houston is 5-1 ATS when its opponent allows 100 or more points in the previous game. 

Detroit

The Pistons are 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings. Detroit is 5-1 ATS after scoring 100 or more points in its previous game.

Prediction:

The Pistons have fared well in this series, at least from an ATS standpoint. They played Houston tough two days ago and I expect the same on their home court. While the Rockets are the better team, Detroit seems to match up well and a strong night from Griffin can keep them in any game. Take the points with the Pistons tonight.
