Detroit has dropped three straight in rather embarrassing fashion. They have lost by at least 14 points in all three games, including a 113-82 loss at Chicago on Monday night. The Pistons are now just 14-16 on the season and 14-16 against the spread. Detroit is known for defense, but they have given up at least 105 points in these last three games. They are allowing 97.4 points per game on the season now while scoring just 98.4 points per game. Tobias Harris is leading the team with 15.9 points per game while Andre Drummond is averaging 14 points and 13.4 rebounds per game.

Memphis is coming off a 112-109 OT loss to the Celtics at home last night.

While the Grizzlies are in a funk, the Pistons are playing worse. I don’t trust Detroit to give 7 points to anyone right now. They just are playing too poorly on defense and don’t have the consistent scoring to make up for that. Memphis is 18-12 for a reason and the Pistons are 14-16 for a reason. Go with Memphis plus the points.
