Detroit escaped with a narrow 104-102 victory at home back in February as 8.5 point favorites, now they look to duplicate those results when they take a trip to Memphis as the season winds down. The Pistons opened up as 5.5 point favorites while the line has dropped to five with 53% of the public backing Memphis.
Detroit has been on fire recently winning eight of their last 10 games mainly due to the fact that they were in the playoff hunt, but unfortunately they have been eliminated with the Washington Wizards taking the eighth spot. They also went 9-1 ATS in that span.
Their most recent outing resulted in a 113-106 victory against Dallas in their final home game while they also covered the 6.5 point spread. Detroit shot 50% from the field, while they were able to outscore Dallas in the paint 56-40. It was a game that meant nothing, but at least they send the home crowd home with a win.
They have been shooting lights out recently converting 47.5% of their shots, while the defense is giving up 103.6 PPG in that span.
On the road, their offense has been one of the worst in the league ranking 26th in PPG, 27th in FG% and 15th in 3PT%. The defense has been better than the offense though ranking 8th in PPG, 16th in FG%, 23rd in 3PT% and 18th in RPG.
With competing for the NBA lottery odds, Memphis has had anything but winning on their minds as they have won two of their last 10 contests while going 5-4-1 ATS. Their most recent outing resulted in a very close 93-94 loss to Sacramento.
It was a hard-fought performance by Memphis and they would have won it if it weren’t for Bogdan Bogdanovic draining a mid-range shot with one second left in the game. It was an evenly matched game where all the stats were close, it was just one of those games that came down to the last shot.
In their last five games, Memphis is converting 45.2% of their shots, while the defense is giving up 108 PPG in that span.
Sporting the worst offense in the league, at home Memphis ranks 30th in PPG, 29th in FG% and 28th in 3PT%. They actually have been okay at home as far as the defense is concerned ranking 8th in PPG, 8th in FG%, 19th in 3PT% and 21st in RPG.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction: Memphis sends the home-crowd home with win
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Memphis +5 & Under 202.5
Detroit has been in great form recently, but they beat bottom-feeder teams such as Dallas, Brooklyn, New York, Chicago and Phoenix. Detroit literally has nothing to play for and would maybe benefit some to lose their final three games for better draft positioning.
This will be Memphis’ final home game and it would be the right thing to do to play focused and motivated to send their loyal fans home with a win after a horrific season.
