While experiencing a horrific start this year, winning only four of the first twenty four, things have improved for the guys from the Motor City. They are 11-6 in their last 17.
The Pistons emerged victorious at the Palace of Auburn Hills in their last outing against the Toronto Raptors 105-86 on Saturday. Led by Rodney Stuckey with 20, the Pistons had six players with double points. Stuckey has had a hot hand the past five games. Check the Basketball lines for the Detroit Pistons vs. Utah Jazz game.
Now it gets interesting. They play their next ten games in ten different locations With only one of them being Auburn Hills and as fate would have it, their opponent that night is none other than LeBron and his James gang, the Miami Heat. The Pistons are 3-15 away from home.
Somewhat amazingly, even with an overall mark of 15-26, they trail the post-Linsanity Knicks by only three games for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Its been almost ten years since Detroit won a game in Utah, including the last eight visits. The Jazz appeared to run out of steam against Chicago on Saturday night losing 111-97 to a depleted herd of Bulls minus Rip Hamilton, Luol Deng and Joakim Noah who was a late scratch with the flu In fairness to the Jazz, they were without starting guard Devin Harris who had a flu bug of his own and Raja Bell, but its highly debatable if that made any difference Paul Mil|sap scored 26 points in the losing effort.
The loss concluded a disappointing road trip finishing at 2 and 3 Utah is 19-21 overall and 14-6 at home. They trail the Rockets by only two games for the final Western Conference playoff spot, but have three teams to pass to get there. The Jazz are favored by 6 5 points, but you will have to lay $110 to win $100. You will need to wager another $110 to bet the over/under at 192.
