End of the first quarter in Houston - #Rockets 29, #Pistons 23

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets have an 18-14 lead on Pistons early in this one. lots of scoring at the rim. Rockets have 10 points in the paint, Pistons have 12.

Jonathan Feigen

That said, the Pistons still scoring inside with 12 of 14 points in paint (four on break, two on offensive board.)

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets going over screens, which seems weird against a poor outside shooting team, but vs little Pistons spacing, bigs can rotate to lane.

Vincent Ellis

Jackson with nice spin move for lay-up to cap brief 6-0 #Pistons run. He has 6 on 3-for-3 shooting. Nice dime to Monroe for lay-up.

Vincent Ellis

Ariza went by Prince like he was in quicksand on earlier drive. #pistons

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets and Pistons about to tip off in Houston. Jones and Beverley both in starting lineup- both were questionable for the game.

Vincent Ellis

Joel Anthony (sore right groin) won't play tonight. #pistons

Vincent Ellis

Full quote: “We’re committed to him. It’s a long-term thing. This isn’t a tryout.” #pistons

Jared Karnes

Nate Wolters has been claimed by Grand Rapids (Pistons' affiliate) out of the D League Waiver Pool. Grand Rapids held the top position.

KCP, Meeks playing together could help the Pistons on.freep.com/1BNmMiN via @freep

Dennis Rodman

SVG sees the growing pains, still bullish on Pistons future with Reggie Jackson ow.ly/2Vx4Nt

Matt Dery

Great #RedWings discussion just now. #Pistons next. Defense is still an issue with someone that it shouldn't be. We explain @DSports1051

Jonathan Feigen

Pat Beverley (right foot sprain) and Terrence Jones (low back pain) are questionable vs. Pistons tomorrow.

Adi Joseph

My unscientific last-two-spots-in-the-East odds: Pacers: 78% Hornets: 42% Heat: 31% Celtics: 22% Nets: 17% Pistons: 10%

Vincent Ellis

And you saw how he had #Pistons seeing ghosts around the basket.

Vincent Ellis

I know you rightfully critical of the #Pistons. But Davis is a beast. 7-footer running off screens. Like combination of freaking Dirk/KG

John Reid

Pelicans pull out hard fought 88-85 victory against Pistons.

Matt Dery

Reggie Jackson under control. Too big and strong for Norris Cole. #Pistons in this thing.

John Reid

Pistons have fought back to tie the score at 81 with 1:24 left in the game. Easy strategy for the Pelicans now - get the ball to A.Davis

Vincent Ellis

Two buckets from Jackson ties the game at 81 with 1:24 left. #Pistons

Vincent Ellis

Davis stones Monroe. #Pistons down 4 with 2:50 left.

Butler and Prince struggling. Butler on skates on Pondexter drive and Prince with forced shot over Davis. #Pistons

Jimmy Smith

#Pistons' Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond each have 15 REB with 9:41 to go 4Q.

Vincent Ellis

SVG about to pull his hair out after last defensive breakdown. #Pistons down 5. Davis with 33 points, nine rebounds and six blocked shots.

Vincent Ellis

Drummond just picked up his fourth foul 50 feet away from the basket and less than 5 seconds on the quarter clock. #Pistons

John Reid

Pelicans leading Pistons 65-63 at end of third quarter.

John Reid

Pelicans committed turnovers on back-to-back possessions.Trailing Pistons 57-56 with 2:49 left in 3Q.

Vincent Ellis

SVG going with small with Meeks, KCP and Tolliver. #Pistons

Vincent Ellis

Nice read by Jackson to find Drummond for alley-oop one-hander. #Pistons up 1.

Vincent Ellis

Drummond back at the scorer's table. #Pistons

Vincent Ellis

Drummond leaves the game, holding his jaw. #Pistons

John Reid

Pelicans' Anthony Davis made 8-of-15 shots for 19 points in first half vs. Pistons. Not bad after missing the past five games.

Jimmy Smith

#Pistons' Jodie Meeks scored 14 of his team's 22 2Q PTs; Meeks was 5/10 from the field.

Jim Eichenhofer

Monster 1st half for Anthony Davis, with 19 pts, 7 reb, 4 blk vs. Pistons. Played 19 minutes. Det 46-42 at halftime
