The Detroit Pistons look to extend their two-game winning streak as the Washington Wizards visit the Palace of Auburn Hills.
The schedule makers weren’t easy on the Detroit Pistons but the team has done their part to fight back. With a road-heavy schedule to start the season, including a six-game west coast road trip, will play just their fifth home game of the season tonight with the Washington Wizards in town.
Just like when the Pistons beat the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday, they can’t get too comfortable at home because this is just another one-game stop at The Palace before playing at Milwaukee on Tuesday. And if the home-road disparity wasn’t enough, the Pistons will be playing the second game of their fourth back-to-back of the season. That’s a lot to deal with for being just the 13th game of the season.
Things are better on the Wizards side of things as they will be playing just their 10th game of the season. The Wizards come into tonight’s game well rested after finishing up a three-game homestand on Tuesday.
Will it be rest or will it be rust for the Wizards? The Pistons won’t have to worry about rust, but will fatigue start to set in? Fortunately, the Pistons got good minutes from Spencer Dinwiddie and Aron Baynes in last night’s win against the Timberwolves. That was good news with a dicey foul situation and allowed Reggie Jackson and Andre Drummond to play less than 30 minutes apiece in Minnesota so hopefully there is plenty of life in those legs.
