Detroit vs. Brooklyn,
04/01/2018 18:00 EDT,
Score: 108 - 96
Point Spread: -1/-102 Detroit
The Pistons play off hopes are slim, as they are 5 games behind Milwaukee for the final spot in the East, but they still have not given up the chase for the post season, with six games remaining and have won 4 straight and are 6-1 in its last seven games and enter this tilt vs Brooklyn with a full head of steam. Detroit during their current hot run are averaging 109.1 points, shooting 46.6 percent and getting 49.4 rebounds while limiting their turnovers ( 11.9 ppg). I know the Nets are also playing decently of late, but my own power rankings and player vs player and system vs system matchups suggest they do not matchup well vs this type of team and are on tired legs after playing last night and at a disadvantage. I also know the Pistons will be without oftern injured Blake Griffin for this game, but I'm not sure his contribution to this team,has been a overall positive one, and he has seemed to have effected some their chemsitry since his trade, and his abscense may be a blessing in disguise down the stretch despite of his top tier talent levels.
