In a meeting between teams coming off wins against the defending champions, the Detroit Pistons look to improve to .500 at home this year against a warming road team.
Game Tips Off at 7:30 P.M. EST
Milwauke Bucks: 16 - 12 (7 - 6 road)
Detroit Pistons: 10 - 22 (7 - 8 home)
Both teams are coming off impressive wins against the Miami Heat, but it's more likely that the Bucks' win was less flukey. The Bucks, 16-12, have won three of their last four games on the road and are holding opponents to just 89.5 points in those games.
The Pistons' bench alone has been averaging over 60 points in the span of their last four games, but it's unreasonable to believe that they can sustain their extremely hot shooting. Rodney Stuckey is out tonight, so Will Bynum will again be the back up point guard and Brandon Knight may be getting one last opportunity to keep his starting point guard job, if Bynum has anything to do with it.
Question of the Game:
Will the bench keep up its hot play and will they again outplay the starters? The answers could conceivably be no and yes.
