The Memphis Grizzlies travel to Little Caesars Arena to battle the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night. Here's a Grizzlies vs Pistons prediction.

Memphis Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies have been in a rut as they've lost five of their last seven games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back after getting beaten by the Suns in a 116-99 road loss on Saturday. Jaren Jackson Jr. led the team with 37 points and nine rebounds on 13 of 21 shooting, Desmond Bane added 27 points with five assists while Vince Williams Jr. chipped in with 12 points off the bench but no other player finished in double figures in scoring. As a team, the Grizzlies shot 45 percent from the field and nine of 31 from the 3-point line as they got off to a decent start to take the lead into halftime, only to let it slip in the third quarter where the Suns went on a pivotal 14-0 run to pull away in a close finish.

Detroit Pistons

Meanwhile, the Detroit Pistons are in a world of hurt as they are now hoping to put a halt to a 17-game losing streak after falling to the Cavaliers in a 110-101 loss on Saturday. Cade Cunningham led the team with 23 points and 11 assists, Bojan Bogdanovic added 22 points off the bench while Jalen Duren chipped in with 17 points and 11 rebounds on eight of eight shooting. As a team, the Pistons shot 47 percent from the field and eight of 30 from the 3-point line which was enough to hang with the Cavaliers until the fourth quarter where they scored just 19 points. With the loss, the Pistons fall to 2-18 on the season and 1-9 at home.

Detroit Pistons Player Facts

  • The Pistons rank 29th in the league for point differential per game this season (-9.0).
  • The Grizzlies rank 30th in the league for field goal percentage this season (43.1%).

Grizzlies vs Pistons prediction

The Grizzlies are still missing Marcus Smart, Brandon Clarke and Luke Kennard, while the Pistons are keeping an eye on Joe Harris who is doubtful for this one. Two of the worst teams in the league collide in this forgettable matchup and you really couldn't back either side with any confidence these days. The Grizzlies open as favorites on the road and you have to say that it's deserved given that the Pistons have lost 17 in a row. This is a game I certainly won't be watching, but if I had to choose a winner, I'd lean towards the Grizzlies to get the narrow win on the road.
