The 23-36 #Pistons will host the 21-39 New York Knicks Monday night at the Palace of Aubrun Hills. The Knicks come into the Palace losers of their last six games, while Detroit have lost their last four.
The good: The Knicks are playing just about as bad as the Pistons are of late, so this is a great chance for Detroit to get back on track.
The bad: It doesn’t take a genius to realize that the Pistons are horrible on the defensive end but when you read the statistics it makes you feel even worse. They are ranked among the league’s worst, allowing 103.7 points per game, it’s been getting worse in the past few games. Their last seven opponents have averaged 112.3 points while shooting 49.6 percent. Turrrrrrable
The unknown: If there is any truth to the rumor that Isiah Thomas is in line to take Joe Dumars GM spot, than Tom Gores is a total nut. If Thomas is ever a part of this team, get ready to be a fan of the Toronto Raptors.
Pistons: Chauncey Billups (left knee surgery) is out.
Knicks: Andrea Bargnani and Kenyon Martin are out.
Stat: Detroit is 1-1 against the New York Knicks this season.
Stat: Carmelo Anthony is averaging 29.5 points against the Pistons this season.
Tip off is at 7:30 pm and will be broadcast on Fox Sports Detroit . If you can’t catch the game on TV, catch it on the radio over at 97.1 The Ticket.
