The Detroit Pistons have lost back-to-back games, but on Tuesday they’ll travel to Madison Square Garden to take on an opponent that’s lost twice as many games consecutively. For New York, things only get tougher when Detroit leaves town.
The Knicks have made major strides from the group that won only 17 games a year ago, with that number within striking distance before the new year, but the team’s now lost four in a row, and appears to be mired in a slide in the wrong direction.
They’re averaging only 93.0 points per game on this four-game losing streak after scoring at least 107 in every game of a four-game winning streak.
The Pistons have lost consecutive games after a stretch in which they went 5-1. For the team to turn things around, they’ll need an improved effort at the defensive end of the court. The team is 10-4 when limiting their opponent to 45 percent shooting from the field or worse.
However, over their last six games, the Pistons have allowed opponents to score 104.3 points per 100 possessions, after having allowed opponents to accumulate only 99.1 points per 100 possessions through their first 25 games.
New York Knicks:
The Knicks shot 37.1 percent from the field in a 100-91 road loss against the Boston Celtics.
That marked the second time on a three-game road trip in which they shot less than 40 percent from the field. Over its last six games, the Knicks have shot 27.9 percent from deep.
Rookie sensation Kristaps Porzingis is hitting on only 31.8 percent of his shots from the field in his last 10 games.
For New York, the Pistons will be their sixth opponent over the course of an 11-game stretch in which they’ll only play opponents that are above .500.
