Wizards vs Pistons Preview
Washington and Detroit have not been enjoying the season that they hoped for coming into the year and neither of them has been playing great basketball since the All-Star break.
Check out a complete breakdown of both teams below.
Pistons Coming Off Most Exciting Win Of Their Season
The Detroit Pistons haven’t been playing good basketball that season, but they were able to come away with an impressive win against a tough Charlotte Hornets team. Charlotte has not played well for the past month, but that doesn’t take away from what Detroit was able to do on Sunday night. Detroit was able to beat the Hornets in overtime, 127-126 behind 28 points from Saddiq Bey and 26 points from Jerami Grant. Veteran Kelly Olynyk was able to hit a buzzer-beater to give him his 20th point of the night and the Pistons a win.
Detroit extended their streak of giving up more than 100 points in a game as they have not held their opponents to under 100 points since January 14th against the Toronto Raptors.
Wizards Playing Good Basketball But Can’t Get The Job Done
After trading away most of their team during the trade deadline, the Wizards haven’t found much success. Coming back from the All-Star break, the Washington Wizards are 0-2 and have two tough losses. They lost 157-153 in double overtime to the San Antonio Spurs and lost 92-86 against the Cleveland Cavaliers where they were outscored by 10 points in the fourth quarter.
Washington hasn’t been able to finish games off, but they have certainly played some decent basketball considering Bradley Beal and Krisptaps Porzingis are both out.
Kyle Kuzma is coming off back-to-back 30-point games as he scored 34 points against the Cavaliers, and 36 against the Spurs.

Free NBA Picks — Wizards vs Pistons Picks & Prediction
Because the Detroit Pistons are 6-25 on the road as an underdog, I’m going to go with the Wizards to win outright. Detroit is coming off arguably their most impressive win of the season, but a young team who has been struggling like they have this season is going to come out flat after their impressive win.
Both teams play below-average defense, so taking the OVER in this game wouldn’t be a bad idea either.
Washington still has a chance to get into the play-in game, meaning they’re going to do everything they possibly can to try to get wins against teams that they know they have to beat.
