The Washington Wizards and the Detroit Pistons duke it out at Little Caesars Arena on Saturday night. Here’s a Wizards vs Pistons Prediction.

Washington Wizards

The Washington Wizards have been in a major slump as they've lost 12 of their last 13 games overall and they will be hoping to put an end to a six-game slide after getting routed by the Jazz in a 123-108 loss on Thursday. Kyle Kuzma led the team with 26 points, six rebounds and five assists, Jordan Poole added 18 points while Tyus Jones chipped in with 12 points and 14 assists. As a team, the Wizards shot 48 percent from the field and seven of 30 from the 3-point line, but they had no answer for the Jazz on the defensive end and never really gained any momentum until they trailed by 25 points with the game already lost.

Washington Wizards Player Facts

  • Daniel Gafford ranks 1st amongst qualified players for FG% (69.7%) this season.
  • Tyus Jones ranks 1st amongst qualified players for assist:turnover ratio (7.6) this season.

Detroit Pistons

Meanwhile, the Detroit Pistons have been in a slump of their own as they've lost 10 of their last 12 games overall, but they will be eager to build some momentum here after outlasting the Hornets in a 113-106 win on Wednesday. Bojan Bogdanovic led the team with 34 points on 12 of 23 shooting, Alec Burks added 15 points off the bench while Jalen Duren chipped in with 14 points. As a team, the Pistons shot 50 percent from the field and 15 of 38 from the 3-point line as they went back and forth with the Hornets in a tight contest, until the fourth quarter where they played excellent defense to hold the Hornets to just 14 points and escape with the much-needed home win.

Detroit Pistons Player Facts

  • Jalen Duren ranks 6th amongst qualified players for FG% (63.6%) this season.
  • Bojan Bogdanovic ranks 5th amongst qualified Forwards for three-pointers made Per Game (3.0) this season.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Pistons rank 30th in the league for steals per game this season (6.0).
  • The Pistons rank 30th in the league for opponent free throws made per game this season (22.1).
  • The Wizards rank 30th in the league for opponent points per game this season (124.7).
  • The Wizards rank 30th in the league for opponent assists per game this season (30.3).

Wizards vs Pistons Prediction

The Wizards can't buy a win these days and they didn't look like they had a chance against the Jazz who ran tiot on Thursday. The Pistons haven't been much better than the Wizards, but they are coming into this one fresh off a rare win after beating the Hornets in their last outing. You couldn't back either team with any confidence this season, but to be fair, the Pistons have looked a little better recently and I think they can make it two wins in a row with another victory here.
