Detroit has quietly been a decent team in the NBA Eastern Conference.
They sit 3 games over .500 and will look to make it 4 games with a home upset of the Golden State Warriors when they come to town on Saturday night.
Golden State got back in the win column after their loss to Denver as they pulled away in the 2nd half against the Lakers on Thursday night.
The Warriors let the hangover effect from the Denver game really show in the first half against the Lakers on Thursday night.
At home, Golden State led by just 3 points at the break, but they did what good teams do time and time again, make adjustments. Golden State obliterated the Lakers in the 2nd half and pulled away for an 18 point win.
The Warriors shot 50% as a team and made 13 of their 33 pointers attempted, led naturally by Steph Curry.
Curry finished with 26 points in the contest, but him and Thompson’s 12 were the only 2 starters in double figures.
The Warriors got production from almost their entire bench. The only person not to score in the contest was Andre Iguodala, who grabbed 3 rebounds and 4 assists. The rest of the Warriors bench ranged from 17 points to 6 points.
The Pistons had their chances against the Grizzlies on Thursday night, but couldn’t hold on late. They saw Mario Chalmers put in 25, including a floater with under a second to go, as the Pistons saw the Grizzlies steal another win from them.
Detroit’s starters all played extremely well as 4 scored in double figures, while Caldwell-Pope had 9.
Leading the way for the Pistons was Stanley Johnson, who came off the bench and put in 19 points and 3 rebound. Also contributing off the bench was Brandon Jennings who put in 10 points and dished out 3 assists. The bench has been a crucial part of this Pistons team as they have been contributors all season long.
Detroit went into Oracle Arena earlier this season and couldn’t handle the Warriors. Golden State pulled away and grabbed a 14 point win over the Pistons, who shot 47.1% from the field in the loss.

Free NBA Prediction:
Golden State got a rare production from their entire bench. While it hasn’t been rare for the likes of Livingston, Barbosa, and Barnes, Ezeli and Clark also produced in the 2nd half of Thursday’s win.
If they can get the entire bench to produce that same away, this team would literally be unstoppable. They’ll have the daunting task though of guarding the solid inside presence for the Pistons here. Expect Bogut and Green to really have their hands full here as they’ll need to step it up inside the paint.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Golden State -8
While the Warriors have no problem shooting, this game will be won in the paint. Bogut and Green should be able to control the game from there and give the Warriors a huge advantage.
