The Philadelphia 76ers, travel to visit the tough Detroit Pistions tonight in Detroit. The two teams have yet to face each other this season. Look for this game to be one of the more exciting games on the Monday night card.
Philadelphia is struggling so far this year, losers of three in a row. The Pistons on the other hand, have won two of their first three games. Most recently beating the Knicks.
The Philadelphia 76ers are one of the youngest teams in the NBA, and have played like it to open the season. The 76ers were demolished by the Toronto Raptors, 128-94 in thier most recent loss..
Despite the 34 point blowout in Toronto, Ben Simmons had his third straight double double. Simmons leads the 76ers in points, assists and steals, while veteran Jerryd Bayless is second in points per game with 15.7 per game.
Second year big man, Joel Embiid is leading the team in rebounds with 13.5 per game. He is only averaging 27.5 minutes played through the first three games, but is also chipping in 14.5 points per game through the the first week.
Shooting guard Markelle Fultz is going through the rookie growing pains to start the year. The top draft pick is averaging 7.3 points and 2 assists per game through his first three career NBA games. The Sixers are hopeful he can develop as the season progresses.
Defensively, the 76ers have been terrible. Philadelphia is allowing 116.7 points per game this year, good enough for 25th in the NBA. They also rank 21st in the league in assists with 21 per game, tied for 19th this season.
Detroit has been playing solid through the first three games. The Pistons are 2-1 on the year and led by big man Andre Drummond. Drummond is averaging 12 points and 12 rebounds this year.
Reggie Jackson has returned to the lineup for the Pistons, and has played well the first week of the year. He is averaging 16.7 points per and 6.7 assists per game this season.
The most surprising start to the year has been, Tobias Harris. Harris is averaging 24 points per game through the first three games this season. Harris has increased his scoring from last years 16 points per game. An eight point increase.
If the core of Tobias Harris, Reggie Jackson and Andre Drummond can stay healthy this year, the Pistons will be in the playoffs. Look for the Pistons to frustrate the 76ers on defense tonight.
