The Rockets are 3-1 with McGrady back in the lineup.

Juwan Howard has been one of their most consistent outside shooters again Sheed will have to watch the big man on the perimiter. Davis Wesley is also a lethal outside shooter off the bench (50% last four games)... The Pistons will be fresh, while the Rockets will be playing in San Antonio thursday night. Yao has been in foul trouble recently... this may be a strategy for the Pistons to take it inside early in the game. The primary backups for Houston are Swift, Jon Barry, Mutombo & Luther Head.
