On Saturday, April 10th the Detroit Pistons and Portland Trail Blazers will meet for the second time this season. The first match on March 31st with Portland winning 124-101.
The Blazers hold the all-time record between the clubs with 65 wins in 120 meetings. Last season, the teams played only a single time due to the pandemic with the Blazers winning.
While the Pistons are supposed to be tanking they’ve been mixing in some decent performances of late winning matches four of their last seven matches. Those victories included victories versus the Raptors, Wizards, Thunder, and Kings.
In each case, Detroit won by double figures averaging a point differential of 19.75 in those four games. In the most recent victory, they beat the Sacramento Kings with Cory Joseph taking advantage of his former teammates.
Joseph registered 24 points plus four rebounds, seven assists, a steal, and a block. He was one of seven Pistons to reach double-figure scoring.
Isaiah Stewart had a breakout performance with a double-double of 16 points, 13 rebounds, four assists, a steal, and a block.
Saddiq Bey (12), Jahlil Okafor (11), Killian Hayes (11), Josh Jackson (10), and Hamidou Diallo (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Jerami Grant (knee), Rodney McGruder (elbow), and Mason Plumlee (concussion evaluation) all missed the game Thursday and are also all listed as day-to-day.
Portland Trail Blazers
After winning five of six games the Blazers had a golden opportunity this week to make up ground on two teams ahead of them in the Western Conference standings.
Instead, they’ll enter this match the losers of two consecutive contests to the Clippers and Jazz. In the latter, they had the rest advantage but Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert outperformed them despite playing the second match of a back-to-back set.
The new starting lineup that features recent deadline addition Norman Powell has meshed quickly with Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum and produced great results.
But the trio struggled against the Jazz as both Lillard and McCollum shot an identical inefficient 8 of 22 from the field.
Lillard scored 23 points, McCollum 19, and Powell 13 with Nurkic adding 10 points. The Blazers were held to 39.6 percent from the field and 27.1 percent from the perimeter.
Zach Collins remains out rehabbing after having surgery to repair a stress fracture in his ankle. The hope is he’ll be able to return for the postseason which would give the Blazers great depth upfront and more importantly help them defensively.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Portland Trail Blazers NBA Prediction:
The Blazers will need to do a better job protecting the paint than they did against the Jazz and definitely need to be better on the boards. If the Pistons are without Jerami Grant again, they’ll have an easier path to meeting that goal.
