They are led in scoring by Stephen Curry with 27.8 ppg, adding 5.3 boards and 5.3 dimes per game but he will be resting in this game. He is followed by Kevin Durant with 27 ppg, 5.7 dimes and 6.5 boards per game.
Detroit Pistons have a 37-34 record (36-33-2 against the spread) so far this season currently sit in the 6th place of the East. They have won three of their last four matches and in their last game they won on the road against the Suns with a 118-98 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Blake Griffin with 24.6 ppg, adding 7.6 boards and a team high 5.4 dimes per game. He is followed by Andre Drummond with 17.4 ppg and a team high 15.5 boards per game.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Pistons won at home with a 111-102 score. Warriors have a 25-10 home record, while the Pistons are 14-21 on the road. Warriors are better offensively, scoring 117.2 ppg to Pistons’ 107.7, while Pistons are better defensively, allowing 107.9 ppg to Warriors’ 111.6. Warriors have better percentages both in field goals (48.6% to 44.2%) and in 3-pointers (37.6% to 35.1%). They are better both in boards grabbed (46.1 to 45.1) and in dimes made (29.1 to 22.7), while Pistons are better in turnovers committed (13.2 to 13.7).
