The Houston Rockets and the Detroit Pistons will both be gunning for a victory on Monday when they meet at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

ABOUT THE ROCKETS (8-5): One of Harden’s highlights in Saturday’s win was a half-court alley-oop to center Clint Capela, and while the pass was a thing of beauty the man on the receiving end has also been getting more attention for his play. Capela had season highs in points (20) and assists (five) against Utah and he is averaging 13.3 points and 9.3 rebounds over his last eight games while shooting 62.3 percent. He and Harden were the only starters to score in double figures Saturday while Eric Gordon came off the bench to provide 20 points, a season-high seven rebounds and a season high-tying six assists.

ABOUT THE PISTONS (6-8): Coach Stan Van Gundy has hinted at lineup changes to try to create a spark but a busy game schedule (Detroit entered Sunday with an Eastern Conference-leading 14 games played) has limited practice and made it difficult to install anything. “Right now, having time to think has been hard when you go on three straight weeks of Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and you’re just playing all the time and getting ready for the next game,” he told reporters Saturday. Four starters scored in double figures in the loss – led by Marcus Morris (24 points) and Andre Drummond (20) – but the bench chipped in only 13 points on 5-of-21 shooting.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Rockets listed as 1.5-point favorites versus the Pistons, while the game’s total is sitting at 204.

James Harden‘s phenomenal early run hits the road Monday night when he leads his Houston Rockets into a matchup with the struggling Detroit Pistons. Harden averaged a triple-double in two meetings with the Pistons last season – both losses – and is practically flirting with one every night in an MVP-caliber first month of 2016-17.

“[Harden] can ball, man; he doesn’t get enough credit,” teammate Patrick Beverley told ESPN after Harden had 31 points, 10 assists and no turnovers in a 111-102 win over the Utah Jazz on Saturday. “I feel like he’s the best playmaker in the NBA right now. His IQ is high; every year he gets better.” Harden, the league’s leader in assists at 12.5 a game, has helped Houston claim five of its last seven games and his team will be taking on a Pistons squad that has dropped six of eight. Detroit opened a four-game homestand Saturday with a 94-92 loss to the Boston Celtics on a late putback by Celtics center Al Horford. The result made the Pistons the last NBA team to suffer a defeat at home (5-1), but they have gone 1-7 on the road.
