An Eastern conference showdown with playoff positioning on the line, the Pistons welcome the Charlotte Hornets who have dominated their previous matchups this season.
Both teams are hot right now, each having won 4 of their last 5.
Charlotte is leading the season series 2-0 and has averaged 111 points per game against Detroit.
Since the opening month of the season the Charlotte Hornets might be the leagues most disappointing team along with the Los Angeles Lakers.
After such a hot start to the season the Hornets have struggled, and that might be putting it nicely.
They come into this game having gone 1-9 in their last ten games and their isn’t any solid reason why they are struggling.
One game they are score 115 and loss because of their defense. The next night they hold the opponents to 90 points and still lose.
This is a huge game for the Hornets. They need to play good and start the second half of the season on the strong note.
The Hornets have struggled on the road this season, registering a record of 8-19.
By the time the Pistons step on the court on Wednesday they could like a different team. It came out right after the All Star Game that the Pistons tried to trade Andre Drummond to the Kings.
It sounds like he is still on the market so their is still a chance he gets traded. If he is not on the team for this game the Pistons will have a hard time winning this game.
The All Star Break came at the wrong time for the Pistons. They went 6-4 in their previous ten games and were just getting in a groove. Another reason why I would be very surprised if the Pistons trade away their center piece.
For Detroit to win it’s going to come down to the defensive side of the ball. The Hornets can put up a lot of points and they need to slow them down.
The Pistons have been very proficient at defending their home court this season going 17-11.
