The Kobe Bryant farewell tour continues as the Lakers head into this game fresh off a 100-87 loss to the Hawks. Louis Williams led the team with 18 points, D'Angelo Russell added 16 points while Kobe Bryant struggled for the first half before finishing with a few late baskets to finish with 14 points on four of 19 shooting as the Lakers rallied from a 19-point deficit but fell painfully short in the end. The Lakers have now lost seven of their last eight to fall to 3-16 on the season and 2-10 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Pistons will be looking to extend their winning streak to four games after beating the Bucks by 102-95 on Friday. Reggie Jackson and Marcus Morris led the team with 23 points each while Andre Drummond dominated the paint with 17 points and 23 boards as the Pistons shut down the Bucks with defense, holding them to 20 percent shooting in the second half and 41.5 percent for the game. With the win, Detroit improves to 11-9 on the season and 7-2 at home.
In ATS trends, the Lakers are 8-20 ATS in their last 28 games overall and 1-6 ATS in their last seven road games, while the Pistons are 22-8 ATS in their last 30 home games and 5-1 ATS in their last six home games against a team below .400.
Head to head, the Lakers are 13-3 ATS in the last 16 meetings overall and 6-2 ATS in the last eight meetings in Detroit.
The Lakers actually played quite well to come back against the Hawks in their last outing before coming up short, but the Pistons have been playing pretty good basketball lately and I think they will pull away late to win by double digits.
