Tuesday, January 18th, finds the Detroit Pistons playing the Golden State Warriors for the second and final time this season. The Warriors won 105-102 on November 19th.
Both teams last played on Sunday as the shorthanded Warriors fell 99-119 to the Wolves while the Pistons got spanked 108-135 by the Suns.
With 10 wins on the season, half have occurred in the New Year including quality wins versus the Bucks, Jazz and Raptors. Sandwiched between their impressive wins versus Utah and Toronto the Pistons experienced 43 and 37 point losses to the Bulls and Suns.
In the most recent loss, four Pistons scored in double figures including Cory Joseph (21), Cade Cunningham (21), Trey Lyles (18), and Hamidou Diallo (10)..
Since returning from a four game absence due to protocols, Cunningham has experienced an uptick in his productivity. He’s averaging 16.9 points, 3.8 rebounds, 5.6 assists, and a steal through eight games registering double-digit scoring in all but one match (Bulls).
Rodney McGruder (conditioning) and Frank Jackson (quarantine) are questionable for Tuesday. Jeremy Grant (thumb) and Isaiah Livers (foot) are out indefinitely while Kelly Olynyk (knee) should be close to a return given the original estimation of six to eight weeks for recovery.
Golden State Warriors
The blowout victory versus the Bulls came with a cost as Stephen Curry took a hard fall injury his hand (wrist) and that led to him sitting on Sunday and may miss additional time.
Curry’s shooting has been uncharacteristically poor (for him) and for the first time in his career, his 3-point efficiency has dropped below 40 percent. Mind you 99.9% of the league would happily trade places with him to shoot 38.4% on 12.8 long balls a game.
At the moment the more concerning injury is the calf of Draymond Green and updates that he won’t play for at least a few weeks. Green being out isn’t ideal given he captains the defense but is also integral as a catalyst to the offense. Although the Warriors have lost five of seven games it’s not time to panic.
Golden State has some leeway with a two-game lead over the Grizzlies and Jazz plus a seven game padding over the Mavericks. They’ll face three sub .500 teams in the next three games (Pistons, Pacers, Rockets) so could elect to sit Curry through this stretch.
Curry (hand/wrist) was upgraded to probable while Gary Payton II (back) is questionable for Tuesday. Green and James Wiseman are out indefinitely.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Prediction:
These clubs have been on a different path of late and it’s the Pistons who boast a better record in games played in 2022 (5-4) versus the Warriors (4-5).
Missing Green impacts both sides of the hardwood for the Dubs. But to keep a positive spin on the situation, it allows the majority of the roster (other than Steph, Andre Iguodala, and Kevon Looney) to develop chemistry with Klay Thompson who haven’t played with him prior.
Although the Pistons kept the initial meeting close, they aren’t as effective on the road (3-18) and the Warriors will still have the better talent on the court.
