Can the Detroit Pistons win two in a row for the first time since November?

The Phoenix Suns have won seven of their past nine games as they visit a Detroit Pistons team who is on the second end of a back-to-back. The Pistons were able to handle business on Friday as they posted a come-from-behind win over the Charlotte Hornets.

Detroit will be looking for its first consecutive victories since late November when they were able to beat the Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz in two straight games. Both teams are on the second end of a back-to-back, but I will give you one guess which team is better equipped to deal with that impediment.

There is no Cade, no Bagley, no Devin Booker, no Crowder, no Payne. But we do get to see a fun little Jalen Duren vs. Deandre Ayton matchup. And Jaden Ivey trying to deal with Chris Paul a night after delivering his best game of the season against the Hornets. And we’ll get a decent dose of Saben Lee too! Fun weekend basketball. Maybe we will see it!
