Division rivals meet on Monday night as the Chicago Bulls welcome in the Detroit Pistons.
The Pistons are sliding in the wrong direction of the past few weeks.
Detroit has dropped back to back games and has lost 5 of their last 8 to fall under the .500 mark on the season.
The Pistons couldn’t get much going on either side of the ball last time out, as they fell to the Pacers 105-90 on Saturday.
One thing the Pistons have done right consistently this season as a whole though has been their defensive efforts. They lead the league in scoring defense, allowing just 96.9 points per game.
It has a lot to do with C Andre Drummond, who is a force in the paint.
The Pistons never give up easy shots at the rim and don’t allow opposing teams to crash the glass. Expect that to be the same case here on Monday.
The Chicago Bulls are enduring the same struggles as the Pistons right now.
Chicago has dropped 3 straight games and 6 of their last 8 as they try to figure out what has gone wrong.
Back to back losses to the Bucks, one of which saw them score just 69 points on their home floor, has the Bulls raising many red flags. In fact, they were even booed off the floor by their home fans, something this team would have never expected to happen.
Getting consistent production from the starters is going to be the first step in getting things back to normal.
Dwayne Wade was the only one to score in double figures last time out as he had 12 points.
Chicago’s lack of production from the other 4 in the starting lineup has resulted from simply cold shooting. The Bulls shot just 30.4% from the field, something they have to change and change quickly to put an end to this skid.
