The Pistons vs. The Magic

The 14-16 #Pistons are Orlando to take on the 8-20 Magic Friday night. The Pistons, who have been better on the road than they are at home, have a good chance for a win against the Magic in their first game back after the holiday break . Detroit has won seven of eight away from home, with their only loss being in overtime at New Orleans.

The good: Our old friend Arron Afflalo is playing the best basketball of his career right now. The former Piston is on track for an All-Star birth averaging 21.9 points per game this season, while shooting 47 percent from the field. He is also averaging career-highs in rebounds and assists.
The Magic are 0-17 when allowing at least 97 points and the Pistons have reached triple digits in each of their last seven road wins.
The bad: Detroit has lost three of the last five games on the road to Orlando and split the season series with the Magic last season 2-2.
The unknown:  Magic Center Nikola Vucevic is having a nice year and is behind Andre Drummond in several of the league leading stats for the center position.  Will Andre dominate the match-up?
Injury Report: None.

Fact: Former Detroit Piston Jason Maxiell will face his former team for the first time.
Fact: In 2007 Arron Afflalo he became the first Pistons rookie to start the season opener since Grant Hill in the 1994-1995 season.
Fact: Andre Drummond now ranks second in the NBA in field goal percentage with 62.2%.

Tip off is at 7:00 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.

    Pistons have won 4 of the last 7 games. They should be able to beat a weak Magic team.

    Go PISTONS.
