Here I am, writing about the Pistons again. They haven’t played the Bucks since I wrote the game up yesterday. I’m assuming that will be a loss and there’s a chance it will be a blowout.
From there, Detroit goes on to Memphis to play the Grizzlies in the second night of a back-to-back. It won’t be the second game in two nights for Memphis, which lost in Houston on Monday.
The Pistons’ offense is really quite terrible and Memphis’ defense is pretty good so you’d think this will be a disaster spot for Detroit.
I’m only wondering: could Andre Drummond and Blake Griffin can push Marc Gasol around a little bit in the post? They have the strength advantage, though Jaren Jackson Jr. is big enough to help out. Joakim Noah is kind of the next option for Memphis to throw at those two.
The Grizzlies didn’t shoot well enough to beat James Harden and his dilapidated Rockets on Monday. Harden dropped another forty-point triple-double with forty-three points, thirteen assists and ten rebounds.
He started along with Austin Rivers, Danuel House, PJ Tucker and Clint Capela. Gerald Green played twenty-five minutes off the bench and three other guys played right about ten each.
Memphis has better depth than that and tried to use it to its advantage. Nine guys played at least thirteen minutes and Noah played nine. Kyle Anderson led the scoring with twenty.
This is a game Memphis will be able to win that way, by using bodies, playing good defense and just shooting the ball ok. But the issue in the interior could prove to be the Grizzlies’ weak spot.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction: Memphis uses fatigue to its advantage and wins at home.
I’m tempted to take a flyer with the Pistons because of the two big guys but they’re going to be on tired legs. Memphis will rotate bodies at them and get this done in ugly fashion.
