Pistons Vs. Rockets Score Update: Houston Up 7 At Half, 47-40

The Detroit Pistons are in Houston tonight, taking on a red hot Rockets team currently boasting a three-game winning streak and a 4-1 home record overall. At the half, the Rockets lead the Pistons by seven, 47-40.

Houston scored 28 points in the first quarter behind 60-percent shooting, but cooled off significantly in the second quarter. Detroit scored 20 points in both quarters, but sacrificed shooting percentage in the second quarter for a far better defensive performance, outscoring the Rockets 20-19 to take some momentum into the locker room.

Greg Monroe, who has been a consistent 20-10 threat for the Pistons lately, has zero points on 0-for-3 shooting and three rebounds. Tayshaun Prince is the game's leading scorer with 12 points (he had 10 in the first). Brandon Knight added 11 for the Pistons.
