The Detroit Pistons look to avoid back-to-back losses for the first time this season as their three-game road trip continues Friday night against the Indiana Pacers.

Pistons look to bounce back after loss to Bucks

Detroit (10-4) had its lead atop the Central Division cut after a 99-95 setback at Milwaukee on Wednesday night ended their six-game winning streak.

Avery Bradley scored 28 points and Andre Drummond added 11 and 13 rebounds for the Pistons, who shot better from 3-point range (15 for 37) than they did overall (30 for 85) as they shot a season-worst 35.3 percent and had 16 shots blocked.

Bradley has emerged as the backcourt scorer to complement Tobias Harris, averaging 22.0 points while shooting 47.4 percent over his last five games. Bradley is second on the team in scoring at 17.8 points per game and has made 44.1 percent of his 3-point shots.

Harris, who is averaging 19.6 points, has been held under that mark in five of Detroit’s six road games.

Pacers look to get back to .500

Indiana (7-8) has won two of three after a four-game losing streak and is coming off a 116-113 win at Memphis on Wednesday night.

Darren Collison scored a season-high 30 points and Victor Oladipo added 21 for the Pacers, who improved to 5-0 this season when shooting 50 percent or better.

They’ve only done that once at home, though, and their shooting percentages of 46.5 overall and 34.9 from 3-point range are well off their overall marks of 47.8 and 38.9, respectively.

Oladipo leads Indiana in scoring at 23.2 points per game, while Bojan Bogdanovic has emerged as a key 3-point threat while contributing 13.5 per contest. Bogdanovic is connecting at a 44.1 percent clip from beyond the arc but has shot 58.3 percent (21 for 36) in the Pacers’ seven wins.

Trends:

The Pistons are:

  • 0-5 ATS in their last five gams in Indiana
  • 1-6 ATS in the last seven meetings between the teams.
  • 1-6 ATS in their last seven games as a road underdog between 0.5 and 4.5 points.

The Pacers are:

  • 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games versus Eastern Conference opponents.
  • 8-1 ATS in their last nine games as favorites.
  • 5-1 ATS in their last six games as favorites between 0.5 and 4.5 points.

Detroit posted a 114-97 win at home over Indiana on Nov. 8 as part of its six-game winning streak as Harris scored 23 points and Drummond chipped in 14 and 21 rebounds. The Pistons shot 51.8 percent in that game and outscored the Pacers 56-36 in the paint.

Oladipo led the Pacers with 21 points, but their 7-of-22 shooting from 3-point range was their worst in the last 13 games.

Pick: Pacers -1.5
