INJURY TO WATCH
Pistons small forwards Reggie Bullock (back) and Stanley Johnson (back) are both questionable to play. Point guard Dwight Buycks is doubtful with a sprained ankle. For the Jazz, point guard Raul Neto has a broken wrist and is out until at least late March.
Utah won the first meeting in overtime this season by a 98-95 final in Detroit. The Jazz have won the last three meetings straight up and ATS. With the way the Jazz have been playing lately with six straight wins and four in a row by at least 14 points, I’m going to say they make easy work of a Pistons team that is an abysmal 9-22 straight up on the road.
