The 10-12 Pistons are hosting The 7-15 Golden State Warriors Saturday night at The Palace. The Warriors have allowed 111.8 points per game this season, but they’ve held back-to-back opponents to fewer than 100 points for the first time this season. Take into account that those teams were New Jersey and Chicago, two of the league’s lowest-scoring clubs.
Despite their defensive woes, Golden State is of the league’s best offenses with 107.8 points per game. Let’s see what Detroit’s defense does to their point total tonight.
Again the status of Rip, Tayshaun, Ben Gordon and Will Bynum are still up in the air and no word on how Chucky Atkin’s ankle tweak is, but assuming there is no word he’s probably good to go.
UPDATE: RIP is playing tonight!
