Pistons can steal a game against Jazz if they play aggressively

Welcome back to Pistons basketball. The home of getting absolutely boat-raced against a team like the Houston Rockets. Who knows what is in store against the Utah Jazz as the Detroit Pistons play their second game of a four-game road trip.

This game fills me with equal parts intrigue and equal parts dread. There are real opportunities for the Pistons to show out this one — particularly athletes like Ausar Thompson and Jaden Ivey — against a mistake-prone Jazz team that can cough up the ball and surrender points inside. Then, of course, you have the looming specter of just how many superior forwards the Jazz have compared to the Pistons and how this could turn into a blowout courtesy of guys like Lauri Markkanen and former Piston Kelly Olynyk.
