These teams have really struggled this season. San Antonio is off a win while Detroit is happy to not have to be playing Charlotte.
This looks like a battle of 2019 playoffs teams that are going to have to ramp up their play to get back there.
Detroit might be at home but that does not look like a big advantage for this group. Two veteran coaches will try to outwit in this one.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs had a very surprising win over the Clippers on Friday. I am not sure where it came from but they did a monster job in limiting the top scorers L.A. has.
They also made a lineup with Rudy Gay starting at the 5. I am not sure how far they do with that experiment but for the game it worked even though his numbers were nothing special.
San Antonio got solid production from DeMar DeRozan and Lamarcus Aldridge but the season is going to be determined by who else is going to step up and how often. In the win four other players scored 10 or more points.
That group was led by Derrick White, a guy they have been hoping for more from all season long. His 17 points was the most he had in a game since October.
More consistent production from the likes of White and others will make their top players just a little more dangerous and playing better defense is never a bad idea.
The game was at home and this one is on the road for a one gamer, a weird travel spot, especially given the length of the trip. San Antonio needs all of the edges it can get and right now scheduling is not one.
As the Knicks progress the mandate needs to be centered on building an identity and figuring what system can net results with their current roster.
The Hornets are no juggernaut but the Pistons lost to them before and after Thanksgiving. Both close games.
Luke Kennard is doing his best to be a scorer and distributor but he is not talented enough to do both. He might be a shooter/scorer but does not have the handle or experience to run the point in a meaningful way. Detroit is really struggling at that position.
Derrick Rose scored 23 points off the bench and that is what he is now, a guy who can heat it up quickly and is not shy, the Eastern Conference’s answer to Lou Williams. He is not a point guard either.
With no player to lead the team on the floor a lot more falls on Blake Griffin and that is just not the type of player he is. Further his decision making seems to hamper the performance of Andre Drummond. The latter should be able to have a big game here. The Spurs do not have an obvious counter.

Free San Antonio Spurs vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction:
It is hard to find one thing that sways you in this matchup, but I guess that is not a surprise when you have two bad teams going at it.
Even though they have disappointed all season long I do like the frontcourt for Detroit here. If they can play smart they should have no problem putting up numbers.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Pistons to -4
Detroit is at home which helps some, especially with San Antonio in a weird travel spot. They win convincingly but don’t dominate.
