Detroit meets Los Angeles for the first time this season. The Lakers eye their fourth consecutive victory over the Pistons, but they haven’t covered the spread in six straight encounters with Detroit.
Last Monday, the Pistons closed down a two-game homestand with a 115-111 defeat to the Toronto Raptors. They missed Cade Cunningham (19.9 PPG, 6.0 APG) due to a leg injury, while Isaiah Stewart (12.0 PPG, 9.3 RPG) exited with a toe injury and will sit out the next two weeks. Cunningham will remain on the shelf Friday, so the Pistons will be missing a couple of very important players.
The Pistons own the fourth-worst offensive rating in the NBA, scoring 108.7 points per 100 possessions. They are dead last in the league in field goal percentage (42.9%) and rank 27th in 3-point percentage (32.7%). On the other side of the ball, the Pistons are surrendering the most points per 100 possessions in the NBA (118.4).
The Los Angeles Lakers (3-10; 3-10 ATS) put an end to their five-game losing streak last Sunday, outlasting the Brooklyn Nets 116-103 as 5-point home underdogs. Anthony Davis led the way with a 37-point, 18-rebound double-double, while Lonnie Walker IV added 25 points on 9-for-15 shooting from the field. The Lakers went 11-for-27 from beyond the arc and held the Nets to just seven triples out of 27 attempts.
The Lakers own the lowest offensive rating in the NBA, notching 106.1 points per 100 possessions. They are dead last in 3-point percentage, too, making just 30.7% of their attempts from deep.
It’s never easy to predict the outcome when a couple of bad basketball teams take on each other, but it’s highly doubtful that the Pistons’ chances to keep it close on the second night of a back-to-back, especially because they’ll miss Cade Cunningham and Isaiah Stewart.
