The Detroit Pistons were able to win pretty convincingly against the Washington Wizards. Of course, the Wizards were cohabitating with the Pistons at the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings. Somebody had to win that game. Tonight’s matchup against the Western Conference-leading Minnesota Timberwolves promises to be a tougher challenge. The good news is that the Pistons should have Bojan Bogdanovic back, and also now have the option to play (or not play) their two new additions in Danilo Gallinari and Mike Muscala.
To gauge what the Pistons might be in for, I took a peek at how the Wolves have faired against some of the league’s lesser teams. On Tuesday, they beat the Blazers by 23, they beat the Ja Morant-less Grizzlies by 24, and they beat the Hornets by just six.
