The Detroit Pistons are on a mission to get back into playoff contention. The Pistons are 1-4 over their last five games, and are currently 9th in the East standings. If the Cleveland Cavaliers are are going to make the playoffs as a top 3 seed, the team is going to have to be better than 2-3 over the last five.
The last time the Pistons and Cavaliers took the court against each other, was January 30th. The Pistons came out victorious, 125-114. The Cavaliers lead the season series, 2-1.
The Detroit Pistons are needing to start a win streak. The team has hit a tough spot this season. Detroit is 2-8 over their last 10 games, and recently fell to the Miami Heat, 105-96.
If Detroit can’t right the ship soon, the team will not be in the playoffs this year. Making the Blake Griffin trade look like a poor early season decision.
When Griffin first came to Detroit, the team was all about a winning culture. Now, it seems the squad has no relationship, and are starting to fall apart. If Detroit gets any wore, the team will find themselves in a hole they can’t get out of. The Pistons are talented enough to make the playoffs in the East.
With their current roster, the team has something else going on outside of the court. Everyone has losing streaks, but 2-8 is a bit excessive, unless your not that good. The Pistons shot 41.6 percent from the floor, and 29 percent from three point land in the recent loss at Miami. Blake Griffin dropped 31 despite losing.
On the defensive side of the ball, Detroit should be one of the best. Detroit is allowing 104 points per game this season. Ranking the Pistons 9th in points allowed this season. If the Pistons are going to win this game, it is going to be because of their protection around the rim.
Blake Griffin leads the team in scoring with 18.8 points per game this year. He is due for a highlight filled game. Expect 30 or more from him again in this one.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are in the same spot they were before the trade deadline. Cleveland stands around and watches, as LeBron creates and does everything for them. Not a good sign if you are Cleveland. Considering there is nobody else on the roster right now acting like a number two option.
With all the turmoil and frustration going on surrounding Cleveland, the team is still sitting in the 3rd seed of the NBA playoffs. The Cavaliers lead the surging Pacers by a half game.
Last month, LeBron James averaged a triple double. His efforts help keep Cleveland in playoff contention considering how bad they have played this year.
Defensively, the Cavaliers are not good. Cleveland is allowing 110 points per game this year. Not going to get it done or come close to making the finals playing like a 28th ranked NBA defense.
Expect a huge game from LeBron in this one. If he doesn’t drop close to 30 or more, the Cavaliers will be losers of three straight.
