The Detroit Pistons and Brooklyn Nets meet Saturday in NBA action at the Barclays Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Pistons vs Nets prediction.

Detroit Pistons

The Detroit Pistons have been in terrible shape as they've lost 11 of their last 12 games overall and they will be hoping to avoid a fourth straight defeat after last night's 108-90 loss to the Grizzlies. Jaden Ivey led the team with 31 points on 10 of 15 shooting, Jalen Duren added 17 points with 10 rebounds while Jaylen Nowell chipped in with 12 points off the bench. As a team, the Pistons shot just 40 percent from the field and eight of 30 from the 3-point line as they struggled to keep pace right from the start and were never really in the contest after getting outscored by 57-38 in the first half. In fact, the Pistons trailed by as many as 27 points before going on a late run to keep the final scores somewhat respectable.

Brooklyn Nets

Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Nets have been in decent shape as they've won four of their last six games overall and they will be eager to keep it going after outlasting the Pacers in a 115-111 home win on Wednesday. Cam Thomas led the team with 27 points on nine of 21 shooting, Noah Clowney added 22 points with 10 rebounds off the bench while Nicolas Claxton chipped in with 14 points, 13 rebounds and four blocks. As a team, the Nets shot 48 percent from the field and 12 of 32 from the 3-point line as they exploded for 42 points in the second quarter to turn a 14-point deficit into a 13-point lead, but it was a real battle to the end before they escaped with the narrow win.

Brooklyn Nets Player Facts

  • Nicolas Claxton ranks 2nd in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for FG% (63.0%) this season.
  • Cameron Thomas is one of only seven players to have scored 35+ points off the bench in a game this season.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Nets rank 30th in the league for opponent free throw percentage this season (80.8%).
  • The Nets rank 28th in the league for field goal percentage this season (45.7%).
  • The Pistons rank 30th in the league for steals per game this season (6.5).
  • The Pistons rank 30th in the league for opponent steals per game this season (8.9).

Pistons vs Nets prediction

The Pistons are still shorthanded with Simone Fontecchio, Cade Cunningham and Isaiah Stewart all out, while the Nets are still missing Cameron Johnson and Dennis Smith Jr once again. The Pistons have been one of the worst teams in the league all season. The Pistons are playing their second game of a back to back set and are now up against a Nets team who have found some form with four wins in their past six outings. The line is reasonable for this one, so I am sticking with the Nets to continue their descent form with another win and cover at home against this slumping Pistons squad.
