The Detroit Pistons (18-42) will travel to Indiana on Saturday to take on the Pacers (27-31). Detroit is sitting in last in the East while Indiana is sitting in 9th place in the midst of a heated playoff race in the East .
This will be the third and final meeting between these sides after playing back on March 24th in Indiana. The game was a close contest throughout but in the end the Pacers were able to do just enough to edge the Pistons 116-111. Jerami Grant scored a game high 29 points in the losing effort and Caris LeVert had his best game as a Pacer finishing with a team high 28 points.
Detroit now sits at the bottom of the Eastern Conference and surpassed the Orlando Magic thanks to 2 losses in the last 4 days. The franchise will have to wait another season to potentially win a playoff game which they have not done since 2008-2009.
The Pistons last played Thursday night in San Antonio and were handled easily by the Spurs 106-91. Jerami Grant missed the game due to injury and the team simply poses no real offensive threat to anyone. They only made 8 3-pters and shot an abysmal 13-22 from the free throw line.
Josh Jackson had a nice game, scoring a game high 29 points but outside of him there wasn’t much help. Frank Jackson added 14 and rookie Killian Hayes scored 12 to join Jackson as the only other double digit scorers.
Indiana has dropped 4 of their last 6 games, overall, to fall to 4-games below .500 on the season. As a result, the Pacers have fell to 9th-place, with the Washington Wizards, Bulls, and the Toronto Raptors each on their heels.
The Pacers won at home Wednesday against the Thunder in a back and forth affair 122-116. Malcolm Brogdon had a monster game, leading the way for Indiana with a game high 29 points, 15 rebounds, and 7 assists. Caris LeVert was right behind with 28 points, 6 assists, and 5 rebounds himself.
Indiana has two very winnable games on deck against the two worst Eastern Conference teams in Detroit and Orlando which could provide them some breathing room for their current play-in spot.
Domantas Sabonis (back) will be out once again on Saturday.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction:
These are two teams trending in different directions as Indiana has won some solid games lately and continue to align themselves in a playoff position while Detroit sits at the bottom of the league.
The Pacers are a fundamentally sound team that plays as a cohesive unit rather than individual ball. Detroit has been a regular lottery team over the past decade and that trend is poised to continue.
I’m taking the Pacers at home as they are simply the better team and will not let a winnable game such as this one slip from their grasp.
