For the Pistons, it has been a slow start to a promising season, as they now sport a 0-6 record. Saturday will mark the final game of a six-game road trip that began after an opening night loss to the Rockets on Halloween night.
However, Friday night's loss to Oklahoma City could've been the turning point for this team, and one of their best young players. In the loss, the Pistons got their best performance of the season from rookie center Andre Drummond. He finished the evening with a career-high 22 points as well as eight rebounds. Veteran Greg Monroe added 14 points, 10 rebounds and six assists.
Meanwhile, like Detroit, Houston has struggled of late. The Rockets have lost three straight after winning their first two of the season.
The game will tip at 8 p.m. ET at Houston's Honda Center and can be seen locally on FxDt.
