The Detroit Pistons are looking to at least get back in the playoff conversation, but are 1-4 over their last five games. The Pistons took a recent road loss to the Jazz, 110-79. The Denver Nuggets are looking to stay in playoff contention, and sit in the 10th seed in the Western Conference right now.
The last time the Pistons and Nuggets took the court against each other, was December 12th. The Nuggets were able to pull off the win, 103-84.
The Detroit Pistons are struggling as a team right now. Before the Blake Griffin trade, the Pistons were in the playoffs in the East. Right now, the team seems to be hitting a wall. The Pistons are 30-37, and sit in the ninth spot in the Eastern Conference. Not a good place for Detroit.
With the season come down to the serious playoff type scenario’s, the Pistons are 5.5 games back from the eighth seed Miami Heat. If the Pistons are able to get hot, they still have a lot of work to do to get into the postseason. Not only do the Pistons have to win, they need Miami to fall off a cliff.
Blake Griffin is averaging 19.8 points per game this year. His number are drastically low from years past. If Griffin is unhappy in Detroit, he will not play to the best of his ability, and shut down to his teammates. Griffin was know for shutting down when he was a Clipper.
Right now, the postseason seems like a long shot, but the Pistons are still optimistic they can make the playoffs. Detroit has a talented roster, especially in the front court. Andre Drummond and Blake Griffin sound like a match made in heaven, but have been unable to deliver.
The Detroit Pistons are in need of wins, but I don’t know if they are going to be able to get enough wins to make the postseason. Detroit is 9-23 on the road this year.
The Denver Nuggets are looking to make a late season playoff push, but must take every game seriously. Denver has lost 3 of their last five games, including a tough loss on the road against the Lakers, 112-103. The Nuggets shot 44.2 percent from the floor and 32.5 percent from three point land in the loss.
Denver’s Wilson Chandler led the team in scoring with 26 points. The Nuggets starting five all scored in double figures, but that was not enough. The Nuggets had beaten the Lakers two games ago, 125-116, but took a break on the road in Los Angeles. Look for the Nuggets to play better at Pepsi Center.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Nuggets are allowing 107.9 points per game. Good enough to rank the Nuggets 21st in points allowed per game this season. The Nuggets are solid when defending home court. The Nuggets are 26-10 on the road this season.

The Piston are terrible on the road this season. They have yet to crack 10 road wins on the year. Look for the Pistons to struggle throughout the game. The High altitude will play a factor in this one.
Denver is the opposite from the Pistons. They are at home for this game, and have one of the best road records in the West this year. Look for a big game from Nikola Jokic.
