The Detroit Pistons are one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference right now, and travel to Indianapolis to face the Indiana Pacers, in a old school throwback rivalry. Detroit is six games over .500 this season. The Indiana Pacers are one game over .500 this season.
Last season, the Pistons and Pacers faced each other once. Detroit got the win, 114-97 at home. This season, expect this matchup to be full of excitement tonight in Indiana.
The Detroit Pistons are 10-4 this season and look like the Pistons team from the early and mid 2000’s. Detroit is loaded this season with good NBA players on both ends of the court. Andre Drummond has played like the most improved player and defensive player of the year candidate.
Aside from Drummond’s improved offensive play, Reggie Jackson is back from injury and averaging 15.6 points per game this season. Add Tobias Harris (19.6 ppg) and Avery Bradley (17.6 ppg), the Pistons have one of the best rosters in the East.
Detroit’s improved play this season has some critics saying the Pistons are one of the top four teams in the East this year. Detroit has won seven of their last nine games, but most recently lost to the Bucks, 99-95.
Defensively, the Pistons are one of the best in the NBA. The Pistons are allowing 101 points per game per game this season. Good enough to be tied for sixth in the NBA.
Tonight, look for the Pistons to get after Indiana defensively. The teams do not like each other.
The Indiana Pacers are surprisingly 7-8 this season. The loss of Paul George has yet to effect the Pacers, but will hurt them in the long run. Indiana has won two of their last three games, and most recently beat the Memphis Grizzlies, 116-113. Indiana shot 50 percent from the floor and 50 percent from three point land in the win.
The Pacers have been led by the emergance of Victor Oladipo. Oladipo is averaging 23 points and four rebounds per game this season. Like Drummond, he too is arguably the most improved player in the NBA. If not the NBA, then defiantly the most improved on the team. The Pacers have six players averaging double digits this season.
On defense, Indiana is allowing 109 points per game this season. If Indiana can’t get things together on defense long term, expect the team to finish under .500 this year. It is going to be tough on the Pacers to beat Detroit in this matchup.
