Free Detroit Pistons vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction:
Coming off of back-to-back double-digit losses, with two even tougher opponents awaiting, the Pistons should be focused to get a win. After facing Phoenix on Friday, Detroit will face the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday and then the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday.
Detroit is having a bad season; however, the Pistons have not lost more than two games in a row by double-digits yet this season and should come in confident playing a Phoenix team that they have defeated once this season.
The Suns are the better team here, but out of their last 15 games, they have only managed to win one game by 10 points or more. Take Detroit to cover the large spread on the road.
