An Eastern conference showdown takes place Sunday when the 76ers travel to Michigan to take on the Pistons.
Both teams come into this match up off wins in their last game.
This is the first meeting between the two teams this year. Last year Detroit won all four match ups.
The 76ers come into this game off what might have been their most important win of the season. In their win over the Pelicans on Thursday, the 76ers snapped their 23 game road losing streak. With that monkey off their back they can just focus on getting wins.
Joel Embiid has been the story this season for the 76ers. After some experts say he would never play after multiple surgeries he made his debut in the NBA. He only plays 23.5 minutes per game but he makes the most of those minutes.
Embiid is averaging 18.2 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game. He is shooting 45 percent from the field and 44 percent from behind the three point line.
The future finally does look bright for the 76ers, but the results have not quite been there yet.
On the offensive end the 76ers average 97.6 points per game and shoot 42 percent from the field.
On the defensive end they have really struggled. They give up 106.3 points per game and opposing teams shot 45.4 percent from the field.
On the road so far this season the 76ers are 1-7.
The Pistons have played well so far this season and come into this game with a record of 13-12.
They come into this game off a win over the Timberwolves on Friday night. They had very good overall game and won 117-90.
Andre Drummond led the charge against Minnesota and finished with 22 points and 14 rebounds. He has really looked impressive so far this season and his only downfall comes at the free throw line.
On the season Drummond averages 15 points a game and 13.6 rebounds.
The teams offensive and defensive schemes are run around Drummond and in games he struggles, the Pistons also seem to struggle. .
The match up to watch in this game is Embiid vs Drummond. Drummond is a very good defender in the post but has a problem against big men who can stretch the floor. If Embiid is able to hit a couple three pointers, the 76ers could really have an advantage.
At home this season the Pistons are 8-3 compared to just 5-9 on the road.
