Detroit had its five-game win streak snapped at Milwaukee, but still kept it competitive in a tough road environment. Indiana is coming off one of its best performances this season in winning at Memphis, but did it against an undermanned Grizzlies team without Mike Conley. We like the Pistons to get back on track here and get a second win this season over the Pacers, riding the likes of Harris and Drummond to victory.
