Notebook: Rockets 118, Pistons 110


By Matt Miller, for NBA.com
Posted Sat Mar 01, 2014 11:34 PM - Updated Sat Mar 01, 2014 11:34 PM

THE FACT: The Houston Rockets, who earned their 40th victory of the season Saturday by defeating the Detroit Pistons, have reached 40 wins faster than any team in franchise history except the 1993-94 Rockets. The '93-94 squad, which began the season 40-15, went on to win the NBA Championship over the New York Knicks in seven games.

THE LEAD: Terrence Jones led six Rockets in double figures with 22 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as Houston cruised to its seventh consecutive victory over Detroit, 118-110, on Saturday at Toyota Center. James Harden added a double-double of 20 points and 12 assists, while Patrick Beverley nailed five of nine 3-point attempts and poured in 19 points for the Rockets (40-19), winners of 11 of their last 13 games.

Andre Drummond paced the Pistons (23-36), who have lost seven consecutive road games and seven of eight overall, with 16 points and 17 boards. Rodney Stuckey delivered in a major way for Detroit off the bench, finishing with a game-high 23 points on 10-for-17 shooting.

QUOTABLE: "We've got to always attack no matter what quarter it is, no matter what team it is. We've got to always be in attack mode." -- Houston center Dwight Howard

THE STAT: The Rockets improved to 12-0 at home this season against Eastern Conference competition, but that perfect mark will be put to the test Tuesday when the two-time defending champion Miami Heat roll into town.

TURNING POINT: The Pistons put up little resistance on the interior and failed to get back to defend in transition in the early going, allowing Houston to build a 23-6 lead less than five minutes into the game. Detroit's deficit grew to 25 before it put together a pair of modest rallies in the second half to make the final score appear respectable. After the Rockets' opening outburst, however, the result was never truly in doubt.

QUOTABLE II: "Our first half, we didn't play with the energy, the enthusiasm, the desire that you have to play at against any NBA team, let alone a high-level team like Houston. ... We had more juice, more energy running the three-man weave [in practice Friday] than we did playing in that first half." -- Pistons interim coach John Loyer

HOT: The Rockets poured in 30 points in the paint and shot a red-hot 70.8 percent (17-for-24) from the field in the first period, which helped them race out to a 41-20 lead. Four of Houston's five starters finished the quarter with at least six points, as the Rockets fell one point shy of their season high in scoring for a single quarter.

QUOTABLE III: "We came out and really moved the ball. We had it going up and down and just did a nice job of doing what we've been talking about doing, which is attacking early, getting inside to Dwight and making some nice passes. The offense was clicking. ... We were in the flow and attacking before they got set [defensively]." -- Rockets coach Kevin McHale

NOT: Detroit's Greg Monroe held his own on the boards, but the 6-foot-11 big man struggled to convert put-back attempts and did not do much to prevent Jones and Howard from wreaking havoc in the paint before halftime. Monroe, who finished 3-for-11 from the field Saturday, has shot a dismal 33.3 percent (14-for-42) over the last three contests.

BAD MOVE: The Pistons came out with little urgency for a team that claims to acknowledge that it is running out of time to make a push for a playoff berth. The players seemed to show little regard for the scouting report as well, allowing the up-tempo Rockets (18 fast-break points before halftime) to run past them for easy transition buckets and pick apart their defense with dribble-penetration.

NOTABLE: Houston played without starting forward Chandler Parsons, who sat out with a sinus infection and migraines. ... The Pistons, who have not won in Houston since November 2005, have lost eight consecutive meetings with the Rockets at Toyota Center. ... The Rockets have won 18 consecutive games when they score at least 100 points, the longest active streak of its kind in the NBA. ... Detroit set Houston's opponent season high with 68 points in the paint. ... The Rockets have scored at least 60 points in the first half of nine of their last 12 games. ... Houston improved to 7-0 this season when Jones scores at least 20 points. ... The Rockets never trailed, recording their eighth wire-to-wire victory of the season. ... Pistons guard Brandon Jennings has shot 25.5 percent (12-for-47) over the last five games. ... Detroit dropped to 2-7 under Loyer and 3-19 against the Western Conference.

UP NEXT: For the Pistons: Monday vs. New York, Wednesday vs. Chicago, Friday @ Minnesota. For the Rockets: Tuesday vs. Miami, Wednesday @ Orlando, Friday vs. Indiana.
