(37-34) Detroit Pistons vs. Golden State Warriors (49-22)
Sunday, March 24, 2019, the Detroit Pistons arrive in Oracle to complete a back to back set featuring the Golden State Warriors. Prior to their match Saturday versus vs. the Blazers the Pistons last played in Phoenix on Thursday winning 118-98.
Golden State also enters on a back to back set playing the Mavericks on the front side and prior to that thumped the Pacers 112-89 on Thursday.
Last season the teams split their two meetings and Detroit took the initial contest of this campaign 111-102. The Warriors holds the all-time record having bested the Pistons in 154 of their 299 matches.
The Pistons have strung together an 11-4 record since the All-Star break, but they’ve benefited from a slew of lottery squads and some extra motivation from Dwane Casey to beat his former team.
On the surface, the now sixth-seeded Pistons look strong but I’m having a difficult time believing they could win more than one first round game against any of the seeds above them. It’s fool’s gold.
With 11 games remaining (including their match in Portland on Saturday) Detroit faces seven current seeds and two teams chasing a berth (Hornets/Magic). Plus six of those 11 matches are on the road.
Detroit enters the match with no major injuries to report.
Golden State Warriors
The rout of the Pacers featured another strong defensive effort from the Dubs. It also marked a sad day for both Kevin Durant and Quinn Cook who suffered the loss of a childhood friend (Cliff Dixon – shot in Atlanta).
DeMarcus Cousins led the Warriors with a double-double of 19 points and 11 rebounds. All five starters registered double-digit scoring efforts and Andre Iguodala also chipped in with 11 off the bench.
Andrew Bogut made his first appearance at Oracle since rejoining the Warriors contributing four points, seven rebounds (four offensive) and an assist in nine minutes of action.
Stephen Curry and Shaun Livingston are both being sat versus the Mavericks as load management (rest) so the Pistons will have to deal with the rested versions on Sunday. Bogut will also be sat for rest.

Further rest days could be allocated for other Warriors on Sunday but Curry, Livingston, and Bogut will be fresh so expect them to be prepared to fuel a win for the home side.
