The Detroit Pistons have pretty much packed it in for the year, but the guys that they are putting out there are still playing with a lot of hunger so it would be a mistake for the 76ers to overlook them especially with the 76ers looking to lock down the number 1 seed.
The Detroit Pistons were able to snap their losing streak last time out, as they blew out the Memphis Grizzlies in a shock win which is further evidence that the 76ers need to show up with at least their B-game in order to get the win here.
Wayne Ellington was a big reason they won that game, as he came off of the bench to drain 6 three pointers in just 18 minutes on the floor, and although it may not be him this game, the Pistons no doubt will need some important contributions from their bench if they are to keep this one even remotely close.
Cory Joseph was back at the point for the Pistons and that certainly helped this team a bunch, as he logged a ton of minutes as the main ball handler and facilitator of the offense and he was also able to chip in with 18 points of his own.
It will be interesting to see what the management of this Pistons team does this offeseason, as they have so many holes to fill even though they have discovered some nice young players in their roster this year like Saddiq Bey, as they look like they will be in for yet another rebuilding year in 2022.
Realistically the Philadelphia 76ers could win this game by about as many points as they want too, with out main job as handicappers here being gauging just how motivated they are going to be to run up the score.
One big reason the 76ers have a chance for a big blow out win here is that they defend the interior extremely well, and if the Pistons have any problems with their shooting efficiency they do not have any other way to score.
Now with Jerami Grant out, Joel Embiid will have almost zero resistance on the interior and it would not surprise me if he is able to put up a monster game in under 30 minutes on the floor. Outside of this game, I would look for this team to run very deep in the playoffs this year, as they represent a brutally tough matchup specifically for the other top teams in the Eastern Conference like the Nets and the Bucks.
Free Detroit Pistons vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
The Detroit Pistons are really up against it here, and I think the 76ers are going to have us covering this spread possibly by half time, and I do not see the Pistons having enough to pull off a back door cover here.
Even if the Pistons are somehow able to keep this game somewhat close, it will only act as something to wake the 76ers back up and if the game goes that way the 76ers should be able to pull away quite comfortably in the end.
