These two teams met twice last week in Milwaukee with the Bucks winning twice but covering just once.
This will just be a single game in Detroit.
The Bucks were scuffling a bit when they met the Pistons for two at the Fiserv Forum last week. They had just dismantled the Bulls to get a little momentum going, however.
And that momentum carried right through the two with Detroit. The Bucks won both by double-digits, though not by quite enough in the first matchup.
They lost to Utah in the next game before winning the next two against Cleveland and Orlando.
Khris Middleton was not highly touted coming out of Texas A&M in 2012 and the Detroit Pistons spent a second round pick on the swingman.
Little did they know Middleton would become a two-time All Star and, in fact, be having his best season here in 2021 when they dealt him and point guard Brandon Knight for Brandon Jennings, who has been out of the NBA for three years.
Khris Middleton is averaging career-highs in points (22.5), rebounds (6.7) and assists (5.6) per game at the moment.
He ascended to All Star level as an outside shooter but its his playmaking that has Bucks fans optimistic about this year’s playoff run going better than they have before.
The Pistons split the two games they have played since the pair with the Bucks last week.
Detroit beat Phoenix in overtime before losing by ten to the Jazz. Its lack of depth at the point guard spot was further complicated by Derrick Rose missing the game with a knee problem.
The Pistons came out of the gates starting rookie Killian Hayes, whom they selected with the seventh overall pick out of France in the 2020 NBA Draft.
Hayes was experiencing a learning curve in the NBA but looked good in a tough spot. Then he tore his labrum and underwent season-ending surgery.
The injury leaves the Pistons without a traditional point guard. Delon Wright took Hayes’ spot in the starting lineup and got six assists against the Jazz.
Blake Griffin and Jerami Grant also do a fair amount of ball-handling at the top now, especially with Rose out (though he is day-to-day officially).
Griffin’s re-invented game does not appear to be a winning one with lots of shots from the outside.
He’s limiting his turnovers (1.3 per game) but shooting just over 37 percent (and 35 percent last season in 18 games) due in large part to his more than seven three-point tries per game. He’s made less than 30 percent of them.

Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction: Milwaukee big.
Detroit’s offense does not matchup well at all with Milwaukee. The Bucks have plenty of answers for Grant as a penetrator and the Pistons’ lack of playmaking will assure this one finishes in double-digits.
