Both of these teams have taken a step forward this season, Detroit may have the better record but the Knicks are probably the bigger surprise.
If New York wants to get into the playoffs this is a chance to knock down one of the teams they are chasing.
New York Knicks
The Knicks have been struggling lately but you cannot discount the fact that they have already exceeded last year’s win total and it is not even the All-Star break.
Despite much criticism at the time he was selected rookie Kristaps Porzingis has been very good and on many nights he is the team’s most impactful player. I am especially impressed with the way he does not turn the ball over.
New York just got back its second leading scorer in Arron Afflalo. Afflalo is a nice player that is proof of the overall talent level of the team but without him they were struggling because Carmelo is not the player he used to be and Porzingis is still just a rookie. The Knicks are no longer pushovers which is a step up from a year ago.
At their best the Pistons look like a team on the rise but at their worst they are a team whose dominant player can’t make a free throw. In short they are burgeoning team that is still a work in progress.
Speaking of a work in progress I am an Andre Drummond fan but his work at the line is getting laughable. He is on pace to setting records for ineptitude at the stripe and it is killing this team. Too many empty trips.
In watching the Piston a bit since the return of Brandon Jennings I don’t see how he and Reggie Jackson can coexist. Both are too interested in scoring the ball and I think they have to make a call no one or the other. If they can get some of the right pieces in return this team could soar.
The Pistons have not been great at home this season and will be playing this one on the second day of a back to back, road-home. They are 3-1 SUATS in those situations.
