The Detroit Pistons came up with the win in their last game against the new look Miami Heat (final score 107-84,) while out West the Los Angeles Clippers also came away victors in their last meeting with the Dallas Mavericks.
Los Angeles Clippers
The Los Angeles Clippers have now won seven of their last eight games, after beating the Dallas Mavericks in their last outing 124-104. With the win the Clippers now sit atop the league standings with a record of 14-2.
Los Angeles has really started to look like the championship contending teams people thought they could be years ago. But now the team looks to be in its best position yet, in order to succeed.
Part of that is due to the improved chemistry between Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, but the other part is due to their newfound defensive efforts.
The teams ranked as one of the best defensive units in the league, through their first 16 games of the season. Luc Richard Mbah a Moute has been a pest on the perimeter, while DeAndre Jordan has been their rim protector inside.
Now next game they’re really going to need these two to be engaged defensively.
Luc Richard has got to contain Marcus Morris and Tobias Harris on the perimeter, while DeAndre Jordan shuts down Andre Drummond inside, because if the team can do just that, they’ll pull away with the win.
The Detroit Pistons ended their four game losing streak last match, after beating the Miami Heat 107-84. Detroit came out with something to prove, going up early 28-16.
From there the team didn’t look back, as they outscored their adversary 78-68 through the final three-quarters of play.
A lot of that had to do with the Pistons defense. Over the previous four games the team lost some of that competitive edge they’d had on the defensive end of the floor.
But last game the team came back with a bang, holding Miami to only 36% shooting from the field, and 26.9% shooting from deep. That single-handedly allowed Detroit to come out on top.
The team doesn’t have the greatest offensive unit, so defense is where they really hang their hat. Now next game they’ve got to continue doing that if they’re to beat a strong Western Conference foe in the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Clippers have got one of the best rosters in the entire league. They play both ends of the floor really well, so Detroit has got to match them tit or tat if they’re to come out on top.
Detroit can’t expect to outscore this team, so they’ve got to step up defensively if they are to pull out the win.
