Rockets powerhouse Center Christian Woods will be on the sidelines with a sprained right ankle and so is PG John Wall (knee) and SG Danuel House Jr (quarantine). The loss of these key players will leave the Rockets with lesser offensive thrust that the Pistons will take advantage of. The Pistons will disassemble the Rockets predicted at 114-110.
