The San Antonio Spurs travel to The Palace to take on the Detroit Pistons tonight.
The Spurs have been on a tear lately, running through opponents and winning by double digits on a nightly basis and last night was no different as they demolished by the Nets by 106-79. LaMarcus Aldridge led the team with 25 points on 12 of 17 shooting while Kawhi Leonard added 17 points as the Spurs battled with the Nets in the first half before pulling away with a dominant 62-41 second half performance. Overall, it was another clinical offensive show from San Antonio who improve to 33-6 on the season and 11-6 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Pistons will be looking to build on their current three-game win streak after making light work of the Nets in a 103-89 win on Saturday. Andre Drummond and Reggie Jackson led the team with 23 points each while Ersan Ilyasova added 19 points as the Pistons jumped all over the Nets early in the game and won without Marcus Morris who sat out with left knee tendinitis. With the win, Detroit is now 21-16 on the season and 13-5 at home where they've won their last three games.
In ATS trends, the Spurs are 5-1 ATS in their last six games following a win and 4-1 ATS in their last five road games, while the Pistons are 20-5-1 ATS in their last 26 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall.
Head to head, the Spurs are 2-6 ATS in the last eight meetings overall and the over is 9-2 in the last 11 meetings.
The Pistons have been in decent form, especially at home where they're impressive ATS, but I just can't back against the Spurs when they're in this type of form so I'll take boys from San Antonio to stay hot tonight.
