The Detroit Pistons travel to Barclays Center to take on the Brooklyn Nets for a Wednesday night showdown. This matchup features two of the best centers in the league: Brook Lopez and Andre Drummond. Read below for eh pick and prediction.
The Detroit Pistons have a strong front court with Drummond, Tobias Harris, and Marcus Morris. Harris is averaging 18.7 points and 4.7 rebounds, while Morris is averaging 15 points. With Reggie Jackson out for a few months the Pistons will be relying heavily on Ish Smith and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope early on. Luckily for the Pistons, they are the second best defensive team in the league allowing 91.3 points a game and Brooklyn is one of the worst defensive teams in the league as they are allowing 111 points (26th) a game.
Brooklyn’s latest loss came at the hands of the Bulls. They were unable to stop the Bulls from scoring and the game was out of reach after the 1st quarter. The Nets have struggled shooting from the field and converting from beyond the arc. This proves difficult to win games behind an awful defense.

The Pistons are the better team offensively and defensively including a better front court. I expect the Pistons to come out of the gate early, pad the lead and cover the small spread.
