Monday, December 4 the Detroit Pistons arrive in Texas to play the San Antonio Spurs. Both squads finished week seven with losses.
Last season, the teams played twice with the Spurs sweeping the series. In fact, San Antonio is on a five game win streak over Detroit and has won seven of the past ten. The Spurs also hold the advantage all-time 55-33.
Although the Pistons enter on a mini two-game losing streak they are the NBA’s pleasant surprise. Andre Drummond in particular has improved all aspects of his game. Teams can no longer foul Drummond with a view to stopping momentum or forcing Stan Van Gundy to give him the early hook. Drummond’s averaging a double-double of 14.3 points and 15 rebounds.
Tobias Harris is delivering a campaign worthy of Most Improved Player. Yet, Detroit’s unsung hero is Avery Bradley. A better 2-way player than the player he replaced (Kentavious Caldwell Pope). Bradley has immediately become the leader of this team via example both on and off the floor.
While some teams still seek an identity setting performance or statement victory, the Pistons have several. Road victories versus the Warriors, Celtics, Thunder and Timberwolves are in the can. The Pistons will need to draw from those victories given the heinous schedule which faces them in week eight. After San Antonio they travel to Milwaukee and finish the week hosting the Warriors and Celtics.
San Antonio Spurs
Injury reports suggest Kawhi Leonard won’t make his season debut for a few more weeks. Yet, whispers are growing in volume indicating he will suit up in days not weeks. Considering how crafty the savant Gregg Popovich is, it’s hard not to assume there was purpose in his decisions in OKC.
Popovich chose to rest LaMarcus Aldridge alongside Tony Parker (injury management) and Rudy Gay (heel) and also limited other key bench contributor’s minutes.
Having lost just twice in the past ten, Popovich could afford to give his reserves extra playing time. Especially since the Spurs epitomize ‘team’. And, they almost pulled off the upset.
San Antonio begin week eight as the second ranked defense, the third best defensively ranked individual (DeJounte Murray) and sit third in the West standings. Kyle Anderson took a hard fall (knee sprain) and will undergo further testing today.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Prediction: Over
Not knowing if Popovich was toying with us over injuries versus rest I’ll go with the hot take Kawhi Leonard returns tonight and the Spurs score enough to make up for the defense they’ll utilize to stifle the Pistons. It’s possible as well he chose to rest his core since the team plays four times this week (5 games in 7 nights) including hosting Boston on Friday.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Over
Of course Kawhi might not play, and the trio could remain sidelined. Still, when Popovich pulls a strategic move, one can’t help but think three is a rhyme to his reason.
