Game Preview: Pistons Look to Bounce Back After Loss to Wizards
The Detroit Pistons(14-14) head back to The Palace Of Auburn Hills to face the Indiana Pacers(13-14). The game begins at 7:00pm EST.
Indiana is in a bit of a slump currently. They’ve lost two straight games and are currently under .500 on the season. Once considered a team that could potentially knock off the Cleveland Cavaliers, Indiana is still searching to find their identity, and most importantly, their defense. Indiana is also dealing with a few injuries. Monta Ellis and Rodney Stuckey will both be unavailable for Indiana tonight.
In the Pacers last game, a game they were leading in until they fell apart late. Myles Turner finished with 26 points and eight rebounds.
The Pistons are playing on the back end of their seventh back to back of the season tonight. They lost the Wizards 122-108. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 24 points, but Detroit’s defense sputtered throughout the entire game.
Detroit has been battling consistency all season. They haven’t been able to put together many win streaks, while also losing to teams that they are better than.
