The Detroit Pistons and Los Angeles Lakers meet Saturday in NBA action at the Staples Center.
The Detroit Pistons need a win after losing eight of their last 10 games. The Detroit Pistons are averaging 108.2 points on 42.8 percent shooting and allowing 112.9 points on 48.1 percent shooting. Jerami Grant is averaging 23.7 points and 5.8 rebounds while Derrick Rose is averaging 14.2 points and 4.2 assists. Blake Griffin is the third double-digit scorer and Wayne Ellington is grabbing 2.1 rebounds. The Detroit Pistons are shooting 35.7 percent from beyond the arc and 79 percent from the free throw line. The Detroit Pistons are allowing 39.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43 rebounds per game.
The Los Angeles Lakers look to stay hot after winning 11 of their last 14 games. The Los Angeles Lakers are averaging 111.9 points on 48.4 percent shooting and allowing 103.6 points on 44.9 percent shooting. LeBron James is averaging 25.1 points and 7.8 rebounds while Anthony Davis is averaging 21.9 points and 3.3 assists. Dennis Schroder is the third double-digit scorer and Montrezl Harrell is grabbing 6.2 rebounds. The Los Angeles Lakers are shooting 37.9 percent from beyond the arc and 74.7 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Lakers are allowing 34.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.4 rebounds per game.
The Pistons are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 road games. The over is 7-3 in Pistons last 10 overall. The under is 20-7 in Lakers last 27 overall. The Pistons are 2-8 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Los Angeles and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
I'm not the guy who enjoys laying these big numbers, the Pistons are a team I continue to fade and it's still paying off. I don't expect the Pistons to play improved ball on the end of a back to back. The Los Angeles Lakers are starting to cover numbers, and they win at home by an average of 8.1 points while shooting 50.3 percent from the field. The Lakers are also 3-1 against the spread this season as a double-digit favorite. It's Lakers and the chalk or pass for me.
