What you need to know about the Pistons
The Pistons’ recent rough patch got a bit rougher on Sunday after their fourth straight loss. They took a hard 131-114 fall against Denver. The Pistons have now lost 19 of their last 20 games, but they’ve been profitable against the spread. In fact, Detroit is 5-2 ATS in its last seven games.

The Pistons are averaging 111.5 points per game, which ranks 25th in the NBA. They’re knocking down 46.8% of their field goals and 34.4% of their 3-point attempts.
