Pistons fall to Rockets
HOUSTON – Tracy McGrady sank a 3-pointer in his season debut, Luis Scola and Aaron Brooks scored 23 points apiece and the Houston Rockets snapped the Detroit Pistons' five-game winning streak with a 107-96 win on Tuesday night.
Rookie Chase Budinger had 16 points and 12 rebounds in his first career start and reserve Carl Landry added 19 points for the Rockets.
Trevor Ariza served a one-game suspension, and that gave Coach Rick Adelman a chance to start Budinger and bring McGrady off the bench for his first action since Feb. 9.
The seven-time All-Star entered at the 7:44 mark of the first quarter and missed his first shot, a 20-footer from the wing. He swished a 3-pointer from the top of the key for his only basket, then sat out the final three quarters.
