Sunday, February 6th, the Detroit Pistons, and Minnesota Timberwolves play for the second and final time this season. Minnesota won the initial meeting 128-117 on February 3rd.
This is a home-and-home series with the Wolves looking to extend a three-game winning streak while the Pistons try to avoid a four-game losing streak.
The Wolves hold the all-time record having bested the Pistons in 32 of their 63 meetings. Last season the squads played twice with Minnesota winning both contests.
Although the Pistons began the New Year winning four of their first six games they’ve regressed back to the mean. The club has lost three games in a row and nine of their last 11 matches.
Jerami Grant is back but now Cade Cunningham is out so it’s hard to decipher how well the two stars can mesh together now that the team has made strides while he was out.
In truth, it’s expected Grant will be the big name moving at the trade deadline so we’ll have to wait to see if any of the elite teams step up with an offer for the forward.
He signed with Detroit with a preference to be the primary star option but after a few years of losing perhaps will embrace being a secondary or third scoring option.
It’s possible the Pistons could elect to retain Grant, but his timeline doesn’t fit Cunningham so that’s a long shot. In the loss to the Celtics, he struggled (3 of 10) collecting 10 points. Hamidou Diallo led the way with a double-double of 21 points and 14 rebounds.
Cunningham (hip) is questionable while Josh Jackson (back), and Jamorko Pickett (toe) were downgraded to out on Sunday. Isaiah Livers (foot) is out indefinitely.
In direct contrast to the Pistons, the Wolves have been among the hottest teams through the last 10 game segment. They have an active three-game win streak and have won seven of their last 10 matches.
Minnesota defeated some elite teams in this segment including the Warriors, Nets, and Jazz but arguably the most important win came versus the Nuggets who sit one game in front of them holding that pivotal safe sixth seed that avoids the play-in tournament.
More good news came to Minny this week as Karl-Anthony Towns was named as an All-Star reserve while Anthony Edwards will play in the Rising Stars Challenge on Team Isiah (Thomas) who selected him first out of all the rookies and sophomores available to draft.
D’Angelo Russell (leg) and Patrick Beverley (ankle) are probable while Josh Okogie (quad) and Leandro Bolmoro (ankle) are questionable for Sunday. McKinley Wright IV (elbow) is out.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction:
The spread seems rather rich but Minny won the last game by 11 points so that likely factored into this equation. I like the Pistons to keep it just under the 11 but for Minny to keep the win streak alive.
