INJURY TO WATCH
Although the Pistons are very nearly mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, they are going out with a fight as they have won four of their last five contests. The only blemish was a 100-98 overtime loss at the powerful Rockets. Washington is still fighting to hold onto the sixth seed in the playoffs, but the argument could be made that no team should want to face LeBron James in the first round so the incentive to win games might not be as strong right now. Regardless, I like the Pistons' form right now and will be betting on them at +1.5 tonight.
