The Detroit Pistons wrap up a six-game road trip with a stop in Houston to tip off against the Rockets tonight.

Griffin missed a shot with 9 seconds left and Harden's shot jump shot at the buzzer was off to send the game into overtime. They trailed by nine in the fourth quarter when Ish Smith and Reggie Bullock hit consecutive triples to pull within four with four minutes left.

In nine games this season, Leonard has averaged 16.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.0 steals. Kawhi Leonard missed yet another game for the San Antonio Spurs .

The Detroit Pistons took a risky move by trading some of their best assets for star forward Blake Griffin prior to the National Basketball Association trade deadline. Of course, Detroit had lost three straight, seven of eight, 10 of 12 and 13 of their previous 16 before that, which is why they are 5.5 games behind the Bucks for the final playoff spot with 11 games to go.

Griffin's numbers have been eerily similar to the ones he's put up this season with the Clippers - taking the same number of shots and getting relatively the same shooting percentages, while his assists have gone up and his rebounding rate has gone down with a monster on the glass like Andre Drummond. He made the free throw, and the Rockets led the rest of the way. And still they nearly won, taking Houston to overtime after failing to score what might have been the winning basket in the final seconds of regulation. The All-Star guard has two triple-doubles and three double-doubles in that span, averaging a triple-double with 32.2 points, 11.2 assists and 11.0 rebounds while making 63 of 73 free throws to counteract 41.0 percent shooting. The Pistons are now tied for 14 in the league in three point field goals with 10.6 per game while ranking tied for 5 by sinking 37.3 percent from downtown. Houston is 17 in rebounding with 43.4 boards per game and 24 with 21.7 assists a night. "Got to find ways to win games". James Harden led the team with 42 points with six rebounds and seven assists, Chris Paul added 22 points with eight rebounds and six assists while Eric Gordon chipped in with 18 points off the bench. Luc Mbah a Moute didn't play after halftime because soreness in his left knee.

The Houston Rockets (57-14) have a four game advantage against the Golden State Warriors for the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference. "I really didn't, but 26, nine and 10 is a hell of a game". The Pistons have a 3-7 record during their last 10-game stretch and are 11-25 in away games this season.
