Andre Drummond is averaging 22.1 points and 18.7 rebounds while Derrick Rose is averaging 20.8 points and 6.3 assists.

The Washington Wizards need a win here to snap a three-game losing streak. The Washington Wizards are averaging 107.2 points on 46.1 percent shooting and allowing 121.4 points on 48.3 percent shooting. Bradley Beal is averaging 27.4 points and 6.4 assists while Isaiah Thomas is averaging 16.3 points and 7.3 assists. Rui Hachimura is the third double-digit scorer and Davis Bertans is grabbing three rebounds. The Washington Wizards are shooting 37.4 percent from beyond the arc and 81.2 percent from the free throw line.

The Pistons are 4-11 ATS in their last 15 vs. Eastern Conference, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Monday games and 4-13 ATS in their last 17 games overall. The Wizards are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games, 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Pistons are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Washington and the underdog is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings. The over is 6-0 in Wizards last 6 home games. The over is 7-3 in Pistons last 10 overall.
There's a decent chance the Pistons will be without Derrick Rose and Tim Frazier for this contest, which really hurts their depth when you add to the fact they're already without Blake Griffin and Reggie Jackson. The Washington Wizards haven't been good defensively, but they've shot the ball well and will have the best player on the court for this game in Beal. With the Pistons banged up, I'll lay the bucket with the Wizards.
