We have an interesting situation with this early-season contest as far as betting goes.
Brooklyn is 2-5 on the year, yet it is 4-3 against the spread. The Pistons, on the other hand, are 4-1 on the young season but have gone just 1-4 against the spread.
Brooklyn opened as a one-point underdog but has since shifted to a 2.5-point favorite.
Tipoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Halloween Wednesday.
The Pistons have finally made Blake Griffin comfortable. He was quoted the other night after his 50-point outburst saying “All I hear is how bad I am,” and it’s clearly motivated him to re-establish himself as a star in the NBA.
On the year, Detroit is posting 105.5 points per 100 possessions, which is good enough for 16th in the league.
On defense, the Pistons are allowing opponents to score 107.1 points per 100 possessions, which is good enough for 15th in the league.
Obviously, both of those are as middle-of-the-pack as it comes without literally being 15th in both categories. But Detroit’s making it work, as evidenced by their 4-1 start to the 2018-19 campaign.
So far this season, the Nets are posting 104.6 points per 100 possessions. That number puts them at 18th in the league.
Defensively is where the Nets start to fall into the lower tier of the league. Brooklyn is giving up 110.5 points per 100 possessions, placing them at 22nd out of 30 teams in Defensive Efficiency.
Against Brooklyn, Jarrett Allen is going to have his hands full against Andre Drummond. But he’s also going to have plenty of opportunities to show him up with the ball in his own hands.
The Nets need to try and turn this into a track meet considering how their defense is likely to struggle—especially against Blake Griffin.
Detroit and Brooklyn are both two of the slower teams in this league, so it’ll be easier said than done. But that’s what needs to happen. Otherwise, the Pistons are going to win the half-court contest.
