Game Preview: Pistons Look to Start Win Streak in Meet with Blazers

The game was supposed to take place last night, beginning at 10:00 PM EST, but the game was postponed due to “potential severe weather conditions” in Portland, according to the Detroit Pistons public relations. It was rescheduled for tonight.
