The Pistons look for the season series sweep against the Jazz here on Monday, which is quite the rare feat considering the lack of success they have against them.
Detroit has dropped 17 of 20 to Utah, but did grab a win earlier this season as they knocked off the Jazz 92-87.
The Jazz come in looking to make it back to back wins, while Detroit tries to put an end to their 2 game losing streak.
The Pistons have been a sneaky team in the East.
Nobody really talks about them and while they are just 2 games over .500, they’re going to be in the thick of things come the end of the season. This Detroit team has a lot of talent and a lot of depth, which can cause teams fits in a 7 game series.
The Pistons have hit a cold spell lately thanks to their reeling defensive effort. They’ve allowed an average of 111 points over their last 4, which is well above the 100.3 they average against this season.
Last season, Detroit grabbed a 114-94 win in Utah in March, which marked their first win in Utah since 2002.
The Jazz have been really struggling lately and may even be thanking mother nature for their unexpected off day on Saturday.
Utah had their game cancelled against the Wizards because of the major snow storm on the east coast, but not playing maybe was for the better. The Jazz have dropped 4 of their last 6, and are now a game behind the Kings for the final playoff spot in the West.
Trey Burke is back to his old self after getting the bench role. Burke was struggling as a starter and after getting moved to a reserve, Burke has put up double digits in 11 straight games.
The young G was upset initially about the move, but he’s learned to play within his role and its proving to be much better for the team right now.
PF Derrick Favors has missed the last 16 games and will continue to be monitored. The PF is a huge part of this team on both ends of the floor.

Free NBA Prediction:
Both teams are struggling right now, but the Jazz have had a lot more time to rest, given that random off day Saturday.
With them returning home here against a team struggling on the defensive end, look for Utah to try to run out in transition more.
