Chandler Parsons greatly impressed me with his play recently, and it makes me like the Houston Rockets a lot more. Dwight Howard obviously has his strengths and weaknesses, but overall like what have seen from the Rockets in the early going. They still have a lot to work on, but the potential is quite great there and it should be an entertaining ride if nothing else.
Tonight they go on the road to face the Detroit Pistons in what should be a battle of many talented bigs. This one tips off at 7:35 PM EST and if you were looking for the TV info for it, then here that it.

James Harden is probable for the game, and anticipate him playing since Vegas obvious does. The Rockets are favored (-2.5) despite being on the road, and in the end believe it will come down to the battle between Andre Drummond and Dwight Howard. If that is a draw, then the Rockets will probably win due to play from Harden and Parsons. If Drummond win the battle though, then the Pistons might be able to get a quality home win tonight.
“I thought Dwight was really good with the ball in the post tonight,” Kevin McHale said after the latest win. “He’s just got a nice rhythm [at the moment]. When he plays, he plays with a nice rhythm. When he goes fast, there is a reason to go fast. When he goes slow, he’s setting guys up.”
We will see if Howard can keep it up tonight and would probably go with the Rockets to cover the spread if you were looking for a pick on this one.
