Its a cross conference showdown when the New Orleans pelicans travel to the motor city to take on the Pistons
Both teams are coming into this game having lost their last game.
This is the first meeting between the two teams. The Pelicans won both meetings last year.
New Orleans Pelicans
The New Orleans Pelicans have had a very up and down season. They started the season looking like a team that might only win 15 games all year.
They then got hot and looked like a playoff team. They have cooled off again but still like a team that could make a playoff push.
They come into this game having gone 5-5 in their last ten games.
Although they did lose their last game, they had their biggest two games ago against the Spurs. They upset them 119-103 in a game they were projected to lose by more then six points.
For the Pelicans to win they need to have a huge game by Anthony Davis. He is the x factor in this game, and if he is able to have a big game they should be able to win.
The Hornets have struggled on the road this season, registering a record of 6-15.
The Pistons have had a disappointing season for what people projected them to do this year.
They come into this game with a 21-27 record and are 4-6 in their last ten games. They have lost three straight games and two of those teams have records below 500.
Detroit is known for their defense, but they have really struggled with that as of late. On average they only give up 100 points per game. In the last five that number has grown to almost 109 points per game.
So for the Pistons to win they need to compete on the defensive side of the ball. If they are able to slow down the offense of the Pelicans they should be able to win this game.
At home this season the Pistons are 12-10
