Philadelphia just got beat in a showdown at Toronto and now they have to visit Detroit, another team more than capable of beating them.
Detroit is looking to get back to winning after dropping two straight. They get a chance to potentially catch Philly team that is still licking their wounds.
The 76ers are looking to rebound from a loss at Toronto. They got a huge performance from Jimmy Butler in that one but their young stars did not look ready for prime time.
Butler has been very effective since joining Philly. He scored 39 against the Raptors showing that he can be a guy to go get buckets when they need them.
Ben Simmons has not attempted a three point shot all season long. There is no doubt of his all around talent but you need the guy with the ball in his hands most of the time to be a threat out there.
Joel Embiid’s numbers are up across the board this season. Playing more minutes helps but he needs to remember that he is more of a threat inside than out. He can make jumpers but that is only to set things up.
Philly has a nice veteran mix with Butler being added. They are going to need to show some resilience here because they are just 4-8 on the road this season.
After a nice five game run the Pistons have lost back to back games. They were to good teams, Milwaukee and OKC, but the fact that they were no competitive has to give us some pause. Ish Smith and Reggie Bullock, two rotation players are questionable for this one.
For the second game in a row Andre Drummond was a dud. He has had only 14 rebounds over the last two contests and given that he is averaging 15 per game that says a lot. Foul trouble has been critical and teams are attacking him. Part of it is team defense though so the Pistons have to figure it out.
Detroit should probably not have the record they do given they are last in the NBA in FG%. Drummond shoots from in close but everyone else is struggling to take and make good shoots. There could be some regression there but it could also be that they finally start losing more games.

Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction:
This line is a hard one to predict. From a pure power rating perspective I can see the 76ers as a small favourite. Even on the road. .
Neither team comes into this game with momentum but the 76ers are probably the healthier of the two squads.

Look for Philly to rebound and deliver Detroit a convincing loss. I don’t like what I am seeing in MoTown right now.
