Houston Rockets vs. Detroit Pistons: Postgame Grades and Analysis for Houston
Troy Taormina-US PRESSWIRE

James Harden and the Houston Rockets are back.

After losing three straight games, Houston came out and dismantled the still winless Detroit Pistons, 96-82.

Though the win comes against a clearly inferior opponent, the Rockets took care of business—even though they weren't playing at the same level they were for the first two games of the season.
