The Pacers travel to Michigan to take on Detroit who will be on the second end of a back to back.
The Pacers should beat the Pistons into town, as the Pistons play in Washington D.C on Friday night.
This is the first match up between the two teams this year. Last year the Pacers took the season series 3-1.
The Indiana Pacers play the third and final game of a three game road trip on Saturday. They lost their first two games against the Heat and Pelicans.
The Pacers don’t want to come home 0-3 on the road trip so this is a very important game for them.
The Pacers have been a very hard team to figure out this year. Some nights they look like a team that can compete in the east, and other nights they look like a team that will be getting a lottery pick in next years draft.
They Pacers have been averaging 104.2 points per game on the offensive end but the last two games have had problems scoring on that end.
Paul George is averaging 21.6 points and 7 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game. He has been playing well this season but the rest of the team has been less then ideal.
The Pacers bench is averaging 33.4 points per game, which is 21st in the NBA. To win this game the bench is going to need to step up big.
The Pacers have struggled on the road this season, coming into Saturdays game with a 3-11 record.
The Pistons come into this game with a 14-13 record. They are a hard team to predict because they have beat really good teams, and have lost to really bad teams.
In the last 10 games Detroit is 6-4. They have beaten teams like the Boston and Chicago and have lost to teams like the 76ers and the Magic.
Andre Drummond is the leader on both ends for the Pistons and for them to have any type of success he needs to stay on the court and have a good game.
He has a tough match up against Myles Turner. Turner has picked up a three point shot in the last few weeks. Drummond has had problems in the past playing against mobile big men so it will be a good test Saturday night.
As bad as the Pacers bench is the Pistons is even worse. They rank dead last in bench scoring this year only putting up 25.7 points per game.
The Pistons are 8-4 at home this season, but only 2-4 on zero days rest.

Free Indiana Pacers vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction:
On paper the Pistons are the better team. But one thing that is really important on the second end of the back to back is to have a good bench. The Pistons don’t have that and is why they have struggled in such situations.
