Detroit at San Antonio

Tuesday 12/02 08:30 PM Eastern

3 units on Detroit +5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: WIN

The Pistons are a defense first team, as are the Spurs especially with their injury-shortened bench. While the Pistons opened offensively minded scoring 100+ in their first four games they settled back into their hallmark defensive ways. San Antonio is getting healthier again with Ginobli and Parker getting minutes, but their key player - Duncan, is getting older and his minutes are reduced to about 30 per game over the last six. It has left a void for the Spurs who are actually getting beat on the boards this season. The offense has struggled as well, as they are the 26th ranked team in the NBA in scoring. They have struggled with the Pistons as the Pistons’ defense seems to get inspired to be at their best against the Spurs, who they have held to 83.3 ppg in their last three meetings. The result was two straight-up wins and a perfect 3-0 ATS. The Pistons are a live dog here, and I'll back them.
