The Detroit Pistons and New York Knicks meet Monday in the NBA action at Madison Square Garden. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Pistons vs Knicks prediction.

Detroit Pistons

The Detroit Pistons have continued their terrible form as they've lost 16 of their last 20 games overall and they will be hoping to arrest a six-game slide after getting run over by the Pelicans in a 114-101 loss last night. Chimezie Metu and Malachi Flynn each scored 17 points, Jaden Ivey added 16 points while James Wiseman chipped in with 15 points and 11 rebounds. As a team, the Pistons shot just 40 percent from the field and 11 of 41 from the 3-point line as they got off to a nightmare start and were always fighting an uphill battle after scoring just 10 points in the first quarter to trail by as many as 22 points early on. The Pistons will face the Timberwolves and Wizards after this game.

New York Knicks

Meanwhile, the New York Knicks have been in great shape as they've won five of their last six games overall and they will be eager to keep it going after taking down the Nets in a 105-93 win on Saturday. Donte DiVincenzo led the team with 31 points, six rebounds and five assists, Miles McBride drained six 3-pointers to finish with 26 points while Isaiah Hartenstein and Jalen Brunson each scored 17 points. As a team, the Knicks shot 43 percent from the field and 15 of 40 from the 3-point line, but this win was more about their defense as they found themselves in a real arm wrestle with the Nets, until the second half where they restricted the Nets to just 36 points to pull away and improve to 23-13 at home this season.

New York Knicks Player Facts

  • Jalen Brunson ranks 2nd in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for points per game (27.4) this season.
  • Miles McBride ranks 10th amongst qualified players for assist:turnover ratio (3.6) this season.

Detroit Pistons Player Facts

  • Cade Cunningham ranks 3rd in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for assists per game (7.6) this season.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Knicks rank 1st in the league for Q1 opponent points per game this season (26.5).
  • The Knicks ranks 30th in the league for pace this season (95.4).
  • The Pistons rank 30th in the league for steals per game this season (6.2).
  • The Pistons rank 30th in the league for opponent steals per game this season (9.0).

Pistons vs Knicks prediction

The Pistons are still missing a bunch of players including Cade Cunningham, Isaiah Stewart and Ausar Thompson, while the Knicks are still without OG Anunoby, Julius Randle and Mitchell Robinson. The Pistons are expectedly massive underdogs in this one and I would be surprised if they put up a fight in this one, especially given that this is their second game of a back to back set. The Knicks come into this game playing some solid basketball and I think they get it done with ease on the back of their defense in this match.
