Over Achiever that crushes totals

Basketball

Jan 21 Written by Benjamin Hayes

Detroit hosts Brooklyn on Sunday afternoon in a contest of struggling Eastern Conference teams. On Jan. 10, the Pistons crushed the Nets, 114-80 on the road.

The Nets had lost three straight before they upset Miami at home on Jan. 19, 101-95. DeMarre Carroll scored 26 points for Brooklyn, while D’Angelo Russell returned to play 14 minutes for the first time since Nov. 11. Russell scored just one point but the fact that he was back on the court was a small victory in itself. Spencer Dinwiddie has been solid in Russell’s place at the point and scored 15 points against the Heat.

Detroit has some major issues right now as they fell 122-112 to a struggling Washington team on Friday night. The Pistons played very little defense and about the only bright spots were the play of rookie shooting guard Luke Kennard (16 points) and Stanley Johnson. Both players have had issues with nagging injuries that has cost them
time.

Even with point guard Reggie Jackson out, the Pistons have put up points. Other than a loss to Toronto, 96-91, they’ve scored 105 points or more in six of their last seven games. Unfortunately for Detroit, theyve won just two of those games, which points to the issue of defense.

The bottom line is that this is an Overachiever. Brooklyn is 26-12 Over in their last 38 games against Detroit and they are 4-1 Over their last 5 road games
