The Detroit Pistons made it two wins in a row after coming away with a victory over the Milwaukee Bucks in their last outing.
While the Brooklyn Nets hope to get back on track after coming up on the losing end in a blowout loss to the Chicago Bulls.
The Pistons are hoping to keep the ball rolling and make it 3 wins in a row, after coming away with a victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.
Their defense set the tone early, and they kept it coming all the way to the final buzzer. Holding the Bucks to 39.1% shooting from the field, and 23.5% from behind the arc.
That was a key contributor in getting them the win. With Reggie Jackson still sidelined the team is going to need to continue relying on the defensive of the floor, in order to come away with more victories.
Detroit just doesn’t have the offensive talent without him, to rely on outscoring teams. So with him gone they’re going to have to continue hanging their hat on the defensive end of the floor.
Brooklyn has three very talented scorers in Brook Lopez, Jeremy Lin and Bojan Bogdanovic that are going to be a load to stop.
So Detroit is going to have to find a way of containing them.
If they can do just that they should be fine, because Tobias Harris and Andre Drummond are going to be carrying most of the offensive burden. That means the rest of the team has got to hound the opposition all game, making it challenging for them to get off open looks.
An if they can do that, they’ll be able to pull out the win.
The Brooklyn Nets are coming off their worst loss of the season in a lop-sided game against the Chicago Bulls (final score 118-88.) Coming out of the gates they just didn’t look to be on par with the Bulls, giving up 38 points to their adversary in only the first quarter.
From there Chicago just kept piling on the points, and Brooklyn had no answer to stopping them (Bulls shot 50.6% on FG attempts) because of that, they just kept building on their lead.
Brooklyn had their chances to get back into the game, but Chicago didn’t make it easy, allowing the Nets to shoot only 34.4% from the field and 16.1% from deep.
That really hurt them in the end, as they just couldn’t get the lid off the basket.
But despite that, their core of Brook Lopez, Bojan Bogdanovic and Jeremy Lin did play well. And that’s what the teams going to need from them next game.
Jeremy Lin is matching up with Ish Smith next game, so he’s got too continue attacking the smaller point guard because Ish Smith cannot guard him.
An off the bench, Sean Kilpatrick has got to step it up next match (shot 3-13 FG last game) if the Brooklyn are to come out with the win.
The Nets don’t have the strongest bench unit, but they do have a better second unit then the Detroit Pistons.
So they’ve got to take advantage of that next game, because the starters on both teams will keep the game close, leaving the reserves as the difference makers in this match up.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Brooklyn Nets NBA Prediction:
Detroit is the favorite to win this game, but Brooklyn is no pushover. Last match they came up short to a tough Chicago Bulls team that sits at 3-0 in the eastern conference. But in their next game look for them to come away with the win.
Although the Detroit Pistons are arguably more talented, they’re missing their starting point guard Reggie Jackson.
An so without him the team has had to rely on the inconsistent duo of Ish Smith and Beno Udrih. Now those two are talented, but they don’t bring a consistency to the point guard position, leaving the team in a drought when neither of them can get going.
That’s why Brooklyn will take this one, as Smith and Udrih will struggle to produce.
