On Friday night, the Detroit Pistons went into Chicago and beat the Bulls 112-104. On Sunday afternoon, the Bulls will travel to Little Caesars Arena in Detroit for an immediate rematch against the Pistons.
The Pistons enter this game currently in playoff contention, sitting in the 6th seed. Meanwhile, the Bulls are looking to just get through the remainder of the season, with no chance of jumping into a playoff spot at this point.
If you’re a Bulls fan, you’re certainly not pleased with the team’s performance this year. Between having a controversial coach at the helm, as well as a bunch of players that clearly don’t want to play for him, Chicago’s season has gone off the rails.
The Bulls have lost three of their last four games, including a 123-118 loss to Atlanta and a 105-96 loss to Indiana. However, Chicago did recently pull out a one-point win over Philadelphia, so don’t completely count this team out. If the Bulls catch Detroit on an off night, they could have a chance.
You’ll want to keep an eye on the injury report, as star point guard Zach LaVine is suffering from a strained patellar tendon (knee injury). Currently, he’s listed as probable for Sunday’s game, but knee injuries are finicky and there’s no guarantee he plays.
If he were to miss the game, Chicago’s hopes of getting a win would take a huge hit. LaVine has had his best NBA season, averaging 23.8 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 4.4 assists per game. He’s also shooting nearly 37% from behind the arc, making him a decent threat on the perimeter as well.
Also, keep an eye on Lauri Markkanen, who continues to improve in his second NBA season. The 21-year-old averages 19.3 points and 9.3 rebounds a night. He’ll certainly be a handful for the Pistons.
In Dwane Casey’s first season as the head coach of the Detroit Pistons, he’s pushed this team to a new level. Thanks to the Pistons’ success this year, Detroit is in the playoff picture, sitting in the 6th spot in the Eastern Conference.
Detroit has won four games in a row — including a huge 112-107 win against Casey’s former team, the Toronto Raptors — and eight of its last 10. There have been many reasons for their recent success, but one of the big ones has been the team defense.
Detroit gives up just 108.7 points per game, 8th best in the NBA. In the past 10 games, the Pistons have given up less than that average five times, and has held teams under 100 points twice. That’s huge in this current iteration of the league.
Defense has often made up for an average-at-best offense. The Pistons score just 107.8 points a night, and that’s due in part to a lack of reliable scoring options. Blake Griffin leads the team with 25.3 points per game, while Andre Drummond averages 17.6 a game.
Point guard Reggie Jackson is the only other member of the team averaging double figures, and that’s kept the Pistons from reaching new heights offensively.

Free Chicago Bulls vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction:
Detroit grabbed a win against this team two nights ago on the road. I don’t see any reason the Pistons don’t do the same thing at home. I like Detroit to get a fairly easy win, beating the Bulls by double digits.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: UNDER 219.5
There’s no value in taking the Pistons moneyline here, despite having home court advantage and being the much better team. However, I do see this game being a relatively low-scoring one, so take the under. Friday night’s game went under, so I expect this one to do the same.
