This is the fourth and final game between the two this season, things have really gone wrong for Philly as they have not only lost all three games against Detroit but every single one of them has been by double digits. This will be their last chance to actually make some kind of run at saving face, unfortunately even though it´s late in the season, the Pistons will have all their starters available for this game.
Detroit missed out yet again on the post season but have shown a lot of improvement, they have some knockdown shooters and their back court ranks 6 th overall in the eastern conference when it comes to blocks, rebounds and charges. This team lacks the motivation as well as the leadership necessary to really make a meaningful run, I hope this is one of the suggested changes this teams plans on making during the off season. For this game they will stick to what has worked, out power the 76ers under the rim and rebound the ball on both sides allowing for a great second chance point ratio.
Philadelphia will more than likely end the season with the worst overall record in the Leagues history, they need 5 wins in what´s left of their season to tie it and with the schedule they have they will be lucky to squeeze out 2. This team is just uninspired, their fans are devastated and most don’t even show up for the games, I´m really not sure who they plan on keeping in order the build around seeing how they traded both Turner and Hawes away.
Pick: The Pistons will be -8.5 in this game and they will not only cover but they will yet against win by double digits, they are playing well and hope to end the season the best they can.
