Wednesday night NBA sees the 13-13 Detroit Pistons visiting the 6-18 Dallas Mavericks.
The Mavs are 3.5-point home-court underdogs in this one.
It wasn’t long ago when the Detroit Pistons were on a roll. Dating back to their contest against the Miami Heat on Nov. 23, Motor City won five of six through their Dec. 2 blowout win over the Atlanta Hawks.
Now, however, the Pistons have become the epitome of a .500 basketball team.
Since that Atlanta win, Detroit has won every other game, losing every other game in that stretch. The team is 2-3 in is last five, and while getting back to 3-3 is a short-term goal, beating the lowly Mavericks is what it’s going to take to make it happen.
So far this season, Detroit is about as one-sided as it comes. Offensively, this group has struggled mightily to score, averaging just 99.1 points per contest.
On defense, things are far better for this group, as the team is giving up just 96.1 points per game — good enough for second in the league.
Like the Pistons, defense is Dallas’ calling card.
So far on the year, the Mavs are giving up just 100.5 points per night. That number is good enough to put them at seventh in the Association.
Also like Detroit, this team struggles big time to score the basketball.
During the 2016-17 campaign, Dallas is scoring just 93.5 points per game. That number is only good enough to land them the 30th spot in the league, which for those keeping track at home puts this organization in dead last.
Luckily for Dallas, scoring isn’t going to be a huge priority in this one against another team that has been inept at best in that department.
Expect a low-scoring game, which ironically enough benefits both teams.

4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Detroit ATS
We just can’t trust the Mavs’ defense to slow down the Pistons enough to make up for their own incompetancies on offense.
