Detroit is looking to move up the pecking order in the Eastern Conference. To do so they have win these games against the lesser teams in the West.
Phoenix gives up the most points in the league. So at least the games should have a good flow.
The Suns may be at home but they are playing in Portland the night before.
The Pistons are looking to shake off a road loss against the Clippers to make this a successful road trip. The Clippers are a bad matchup but they should in at Phoenix on Wednesday.
Detroit is still waiting for Reggie Jackson to get healthy but in his absence they have been more balanced with their scoring. Five players are scoring 10 or more per game.
Chief among them is Tobias Harris at 17ppg. He is always going to be a tweener but more and more the deal that brought him to Detroit is looking like a steal.
Andre Drummond has been his usual beast self in the middle. He is averaging 14.3 rebounds per game but his scoring is down from a year ago. His FG% is down below 50%, which is unusual but the fact that he is making half his free throws is encouraging.
The Pistons can get really long in the front court when they pair Drummond with Jon Leuer. Leuer might be finally figuring out how to be a stretch four in the league and has been shooting well.
Detroit has yet to win a road game this season.
The Suns definitely have one of the most interesting rosters in the league. As stated before they are terrible defensively…and that is with Tyson Chandler, one of the better defensive players in the league.
On offense they are good though…even if the part fit together awkwardly. However, there is nothing awkward about Devin Booker who is rapidly evolving into one of the best young scorers in the league.
He is leading the team at 23ppg and he is not even shooting well.
Right behind him is TJ Warren at 21ppg. He is taking advantage a of a big opportunity and it is working. I like his game and he is getting better as a shooter.
With those two guys soaring it has been harder for the Suns to get their point guards as many points. Eric Bledsoe’s scoring is down at 17ppg while Brandon Knight is averaging just 11ppg.
Neither is shooting the ball well so those numbers should improve.
Tyson Chandler is no hulk but he gives the Suns some rebounding and shot blocking presence inside. His rebounding average is at a career high 13.3.
Alex Len continues to be a disappointment for the Suns. Another productive big would really give this team a winning dynamic.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction:
It makes sense that the Pistons are the favourite in this one.
They have performed better and will not be on a back to back like Phoenix.
It is too bad because I really want to back the Suns here. It just doesn’t feel like a great spot.
