Two of the three worst teams in NBA will be facing off tonight, and neither will be at their best. The Detroit Pistons sport the league’s third-worst net rating at minus-7.6 and will be hosting the league-worst San Antonio Spurs who are a negative-10. Do not doubt San Antonio’s willingness to lose this game. Just check out the team’s injury report tonight:

Of course, being seasoned Pistons fans, we also know that nobody should doubt the team’s ability to fall on its butt and embarrass itself this season. It was just two weeks ago that the Pistons managed to fall to a Houston Rockets team missing its top three scorers.
This is going to be one ugly game, Saddiq Bey and Kevin Knox are gone, and James Wiseman isn’t available to play yet. I guess we get a good early peek at what life can be like for Isaiah Livers, who should command consistent minutes and more offensive touches going forward.
