The final day of the 2018-19 regular season is finally upon us. As of this writing, we don’t know if the Pistons have qualified for the postseason just yet, but we know that every game down the stretch (despite Detroit’s likelihood of making the playoffs) means everything to a team looking to qualify in the final two days of the year.
The Knicks, on the other hand, have clinched the league’s worst record.
So needless to say, there’s a lot more on the line for the visiting team than the home team in this one.
These two squads tip off on Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. ET.
The Pistons enter this game as the No. 25 scoring team in the NBA throughout the regular season. This group is scoring an average of 107 points per night.

The team is scoring 106 points per 100 possessions and giving up an average of 107.1 points per 100 possessions.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction: Knicks remind us why they’re league’s worst.
This far ahead of the contest, it’s difficult to make a prediction when we don’t know who will/won’t be playing in the regular-season’s final game, and it’s also tough to project an outcome when we don’t know who will be locked into what seeds ahead of tip.
But if both teams are relatively full-rostered, this one becomes a lot easier to predict, and pretty much in line with what we’d expect either way.
