The Pistons host the thorn in their side Utah Jazz tonight at the Palace of Auburn Hills. The Pistons are looking to extend their three game winning streak to four but the team they can’t seem to beat is in town.
The last time Detroit beat the Jazz Ben Wallace was on the team. The 64-62 win over Utah in 2005 wasn’t a game to remember except for the fact they won. The Pistons have lost six straight to the Jazz (16-11), losing three in a row at home to them by an average of only five points. The Pistons have given up 100 points in their last four games against the Jazz and that’s when Detroit’s defense was their calling card.
We will wait to see if Jazz forward Carlos Boozer is in the lineup tonight. He’s been sidelined their last few games with an injury, but the Jazz are stacked with great players. Just ask our old friend Mehmet Okur
Watch out for Paul Millsap, who’s putting up serious numbers this season.
Tip off is at 8:00 P.M. on FSN. If you can’t watch the FSN broadcast, tune into 1130 AM The Fan where you can catch our friend Matt Dery with the Pre-Game starting at 7:00. Can’t do either, follow the game on NBA.com.
For those of you willing to brave the storm and head out to the Palace tonight….it’s dollar hot dog night!
UTAH 120- DETROIT 114 Double OT
