The Orlando Magic travel to Michigan to take on the Detroit Pistons in their second match up on the young season.
In the teams first match up the Pistons won in easy fashion. The Pistons held the Magic to 8 points in the second quarter on the way to a 108-82 win.
Detroit was led by a balanced attack both by starters and the bench. Andre Drummond had 12 points and 20 rebounds.
The Magic under first year coach Frank Vogel have really seemed to struggle early on. After making a trade to get Serge Ibaka in the off-season, they haven’t found the chemistry on the offensive end early on to win many games.
The Magic on the offensive end have only averaged 93 points per game.
Evan Fournier, Serge Ibaka, Nikola Vucevic, and Elfrid Payton, all average over 10 points per game. Vucevic averages a double double with 12.4 points and 11.6 rebounds per game. The problem the Magic have had so far is
The problem the Magic have had so far is that when they need a basket, they haven’t found that player that they can trust down the step. Victor Oladipo was that player last year, but was traded in the off season.
On the defensive end the Magic have been solid so far this season. They give up 97.4 points per game, and hold teams to 32 percent from behind the arc.
The Magic so far this season are 4-6 on the road.
The Pistons so far this season, have been two different teams at home and on the road.
On the road this season the Pistons are 4-8, well at home they are 7-2. The home crowd has really given the Pistons an advantage and it has showed in their record so far this season.
The Pistons are led by the man in the middle, Andre Drummond. He is averaging 14.3 points, 13.2 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.1 blocks per game. He is such a dominating force offensively and defensively most teams have a very hard time matching up with him.
In the first game the Magic had no answer for Drummond and I expect a lot of the same on Sunday Night. As long as Drummond can stay out of foul trouble he should be in store for a big night.
Detroit is averaging 100.4 points per game and at home that number goes up to 102.
On the defensive end the Pistons have an excellent defense at home.
They only give up 89.1 points per game at the Palace, and hold teams to 29.6 percent from behind the arc.

Free Orlando Magic vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction:
I see this game going the same way the first match up went. Andre Drummond is going to have his way with the Magic Defense.
For Orlando they already have enough problems on the offensive side of the ball and a running into a very good defense in Detroit.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Detroit -7 .
Detroit will win this game and it should be pretty easy.
