What to know

The Detroit Pistons haven’t won a game against the Los Angeles Clippers since Jan. 12, 2019, but will look to end the drought on Thursday. Detroit will face Los Angeles at 10:30 PM ET at the Crypto.com Arena after having a few days off. These two sides are poised to turn the tide after losing close games in previous matches.

It was close but no cigar for the Pistons as they fell 115-111 to the Toronto Raptors on Monday. Detroit’s leading scorer was shooting guard Jaden Ivey (21 points).

Speaking of close games: Los Angeles was close but no cigar on Tuesday as they fell 103-101 to the Dallas Mavericks. Los Angeles was about to wrap up a huge comeback (they were down 54-32 at the end of the half), but they just didn’t have enough grit. Despite the loss, they had strong runs from forward Nicolas Batum, who shot 7-of-7 from beyond the arc and finished with 22 points and five rebounds, and power forward Marcus Morris, who had 18 points.

The Pistons should lose next by 9. Smart punters were the ones who kept their money on their Detroit opponents every time they hit the road.

Detroit is now up 3-12 while the Clippers sit at 8-7. A couple of offensive numbers to keep in mind before the tip: Detroit was only able to knock down 42.90% of its own shooting, which is the lowest field goal percentage in the league. Los Angeles has been experiencing some struggles as it is running into the fewest points-per-game matchup in the league, having averaged just 104.9. It’s possible that one of these Achilles heels will end up tripping the losing team.
