The Detroit Pistons play six of their next seven on the road starting tonight against the San Antonio Spurs, who return from an eight-game road trip.
The roller coaster that is the Detroit Pistons season is on an upswing with the team riding a four-game winning streak. With every up followed by a down and every down followed by an up, Pistons fans would be right to be looking for when that next down will come.
A pessimistic view says that will come tonight when the Pistons take on the San Antonio Spurs to start a stretch of games that will see the Pistons play six of their next seven on the road.
The optimistic view says that the Pistons have made a habit of surprising this season – for better and worse. A result that surprises in San Antonio tonight would certainly qualify in the ‘for better’ category. With wins over the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers to their credit, the Pistons have shown an ability to not only play with, but beat, the NBA’s best.
The Pistons are one of only five teams to beat the Warriors this season but they are looking to do what no team has done when they play the Spurs tonight. The Spurs come home from an eight-game road trip to play their 29th home game of the season. The result in their previous 28 home games has been the same – a win.
So what is tonight? The start of an inevitable dip or another surprise? Here is all the important info you need for today’s game.
