The Pistons and the Knicks enter this contest with opposite goals in mind. Although the Knicks may not openly admit it, they’re in tank mode at this point in the season.
They’re not making the playoffs, and collecting ping-pong balls for June’s lottery has to be the priority if this franchise is going to ever look to the future instead of trying to find quick fixes.
Detroit, on the other hand, is looking at back-to-back seasons in the playoffs. Making it is great — earning a top-seven seed is better, as it means delaying a potential matchup with the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers.
*All statistics, standings, records, rankings and trends are current as of this writing at 7:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, March 26, 2017.
Detroit enters this contest on a serious skid. It’s lost three straight, but that fact is made even worse when you realize it’s also lost six of its last seven.
On the year, the Pistons are 26th in scoring. They’re averaging 101.3 points per night.
Defensively, this team is allowing opponents to score an average of 102.4 points per contest. That number is good enough for sixth in the league.
Against the Knicks, look for Andre Drummond to dominate the middle. The Knicks struggle defensively all over the court, but the middle appears to be where they’re softest.
We’re not making any official predictions on player props, but don’t be shocked if Drummond approaches one of his patented 20-20 stat lines.
New York Knicks
If you thought the Pistons’ recent skid was bad, things are about to get ugly.
New York enters this contest having lost five straight and 10 of its last 12. As we mentioned above: This team has no interest in fighting for the playoffs at this point in the process.
On the year, the Knicks are averaging 105 points per night. That number is good enough for 14th in the league, putting them in the top half in that category.
Defensively, however, New York is just 25th in points per game allowed, giving up 108.7 points on a nightly basis.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction:
The Knicks are tough to trust, but so are the Pistons at this point in the season. If Detroit can get a good game out of KCP, Drummond and any third option, they shouldn’t have any trouble taking down the Knicks
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Odds currently OFF (as of 2am ET Monday). A final score prediction is provided below.
One thing to keep an eye out for is who the Knicks are sitting. They’ve been resting their stars lately (or “tanking” as the kids call it these days), and guys like Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Rose could very well be on the sidelines.
Make sure you check the injury report for this one before making a decision.
