The Washington Wizards pay a visit to the Detroit Pistons at the Little Caesars Arena on Monday night. Here’s a Wizards vs Pistons Prediction.

Washington Wizards

The Washington Wizards have been in terrible shape as they've won just two of their first 16 games of the season and they are now hoping to avoid a 10th straight loss after getting dismantled by the Hawks in a 136-108 loss on Saturday. Jared Butler led the team in scoring with just 13 points and five assists off the bench, Kyle Kuzma and Daniel Gafford each scored 12 points while Deni Avdija chipped in with nine points. As a team, the Wizards shot 48 percent from the field and 10 of 38 from the 3-point line, but they couldn't keep the Hawks off the 3-point line early and leaked 70 points in the first half before things really got ugly in the third quarter where they fell behind by 36 points.

Washington Wizards Player Facts

  • Tyus Jones ranks 4th amongst qualified players for assist:turnover ratio (6.6) this season.
  • Daniel Gafford ranks 8th amongst qualified players for Blocks Per Game (1.9) this season.

Cade Cunningham led the team with 31 points and five assists, Jaden Ivey added 25 points on nine of 16 shooting while Jalen Duren chipped in with 13 points, 13 rebounds and four assists off the bench. As a team, the Pistons shot 47 percent from the field and seven of 18 from the 3-point line as they exploded for 37 points in the second quarter to take the lead into halftime, only to get completely blown away by 39-17 in the fourth quarter to lose big in the end.

  • The Wizards rank 30th in the league for rebounds per game this season (39.2).

Peter's Pick

The Wizards are keeping an eye on Jordan Poole who is listed as questionable for this one, while the Pistons are still missing Bojan Bogdanovic and Joe Harris. You couldn't bet on either team with much confidence the way these guys have been playing this season, but I guess the silver lining is that someone is coming away with a win in this one. It's hard to back a Pistons team on a 13-game losing streak, but they have a golden opportunity for a win here against a Wizards team who could be without Poole in this one. I'd rather stay away from this game, but if I had to choose, I'd lean towards the Pistons to get the long overdue win at home.
