The Detroit Pistons (18-40) will travel to Texas to take on the San Antonio Spurs (28-28). Detroit is sitting in last in the East while San Antonio is in the midst of a heated playoff race out West.
This will be the second and final meeting between these sides after playing back on March 15th in Detroit. San Antonio controlled the game in that affair, winning 109-99 and held a 20 point lead after the 3rd quarter. DeJounte Murray finished with a game high 19 points and added 10 rebounds for a double-double.
Detroit sits at the bottom of the Eastern Conference, tied with the Orlando Magic at 18-40. The franchise will have to wait another season to potentially win a playoff game which they have not done since 2008-2009.
The Pistons last played Monday night at home and defeated the not much better 20-37 Cleveland Cavaliers. Detroit held on to win a close one 109-105 despite entering the 4th quarter with an 8 point lead and surrendering it at one point.
The big difference came from the 3pt line as the Pistons shot 10-27 (37%) while the Cavs were only 5/26 (19.2%). 6 players finished in double figures scoring including rookie Saddiq Bey and Frank Jackson who both scored 20.
San Antonio Spurs
In the Western Conference playoff picture, San Antonio is in 10th with an even 28-28 record. They hold a commanding 3.5 game lead over New Orleans for the final play-in spot.
The Spurs have won 2 straight games on the road; 111-85 Sunday in Phoenix and 109-94 Monday in Indiana. In the most recent contest San Antonio was able to jump out to a 15 point lead after the 1st quarter and held onto the differential the rest of the way. Derrick White scored a game high 25 points for the Spurs.
Their wins against Phoenix and Indiana showed just what the San Antonio Spurs can do on the road, limiting two usually high-scoring offenses with stifling defensive play.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Prediction:
These are two teams trending in different directions as San Antonio has won some solid games lately and continue to align themselves in a playoff position while Detroit sits at the bottom of the league.
The Spurs are a fundamentally sound team that plays as a cohesive unit rather than individual ball which is regular under Gregg Popovich. Detroit has been a regular lottery team over the past decade and that trend is poised to continue.
I’m taking the Spurs at home as they are simply the better team and will not let a winnable game such as this one slip from their grasp.
