The Mavs have won back-to-back games coming into tonight. They are tied with the Jazz for the final two spots in the West, ½ a game above the Rockets in the ninth position. The Pistons have won six of their last seven to get to the seventh seed in the East. They have a 1-game lead on the Pacers in eighth and two games on the ninth-seeded Bulls. Despite Detroit’s strong play as of late, they still are just 2-6 ATS in their last 8 against Southwest opponents and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games after a cover. Dallas is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 on the road and should give the Pistons all they can handle tonight in a game that is so big for both teams.
