Going into Tuesday night’s game against the Jazz, Detroit is tied with Washington and Minnesota for the worst record in the NBA.
The Pistons have some impressive wins on the season, including ones over Boston and Phoenix earlier and two recently against the 76ers and Lakers. They are capable of playing with some of the NBA’s top teams.
Most recently, they did get walloped by Golden State, 118–91. Jerami Grant and Josh Jackson were the only two Pistons in double-figures and Steph Curry shot 6-for-8 from outside for the Warriors.
Jackson started the season well for Detroit but has since not shot the ball well and gone to the bench. He’s had some rough shooting games since missing a couple games early in January.
Jackson went fourth overall in the 2017 NBA Draft, immediately after Jayson Tatum but before guys such as De’Aaron Fox (5), Donovan Mitchell (13) and Bam Adebayo (14).
The Pistons have one of the more unique lineups in the league because they don’t really have a true point guard, nor a center.
Instead, they have five guys who qualify as basically either a two, three or four. Against the Jazz, which plays four guards along Rudy Gobert in the middle, that could be a problem.
Utah’s 11-game winning streak came to an end on Sunday in Denver, where the Nuggets got the best of a nationally televised game, 128–117.
Nikola Jokic made all four of his three-point attempts, nine out of his ten free throw attempts and 17 of his 26 field goal attempts overall to tie a career-high of 47 points.
“Big Honey,” who may go down as the greatest second round pick in modern era NBA history when his career is over, has a 40-point game in each of his last five seasons.
The Jazz actually shot better than 42 percent from three but Denver shot better than 62 percent. It also turned it over just eight times to Utah’s 14. It took such an effort to finally beat Utah.
How will Utah respond? It got Donovan Mitchell back for the game in Denver but he didn’t look great after missing a game with a concussion. He shot just 3-for-12 from the field and finished with 13 points, three assists and five turnovers.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction: Utah back on track.
Utah’s winning streak may be over but it’s still playing great basketball.
Quin Synder is an excellent head coach and he will have his team re-focused and re-energized to get another streak started.
A little home cooking and the lowly Pistons should be just what the doctor ordered. Utah wins easy before going on the road for a back-to-back in Atlanta and Charlotte.
