Detroit Pistons vs Golden State Warriors prediction

I don't want to back the Detroit Pistons as much as the next guy, as they're historically bad, and they're 14-20 ATS on the season despite being underdogs every night. However, the Golden State Warriors have lost 4 of their last 5 games, and they're coming off a game last night where they blew an 18-point lead in 6 minutes. Even as experienced as they are, it's going to be hard for the Warriors to get off the canvas from last night. Give me the road dog in the Pistons.
