Detroit vs. Brooklyn,

Score: 108 - 96
Money Line: -108 Detroit
The Pistons aren't dead yet. Detroit is 6-1 in its last seven games with a four-game win streak. The Pistons are a long shot to make the postseason, but they still are alive - unless they lose this game.
I don't see that happening.
Blake Griffin is out, but Reggie Jackson has returned from injury helping to breath life into Detroit. Andre Drummond is in line for a monster game. He's averaging 15.3 points and 20 rebounds per game in three games against the Nets this season. The Nets allowed Dwight Howard to produce 32 points and 30 rebounds against them less than two weeks ago.
The Nets just upset the Heat, 110-109, in overtime on the road last night for their second consecutive victory. They haven't won three games in a row all season. The Nets exerted tremendous energy in coming back from 14 points down to stun the Heat.
Detroit also played last night, defeating the Knicks. So it's the Pistons who actually have the shorter distance to travel than the Nets, who are flying in from South Florida.
