The San Antonio Spurs don't lose back-to-back games often and have been much better at home than on the road this season. In fact, the Spurs are outscoring teams by seven points at home while shooting nearly 48 percent from the field. The Pistons have cooled off after a strong start and don't play as well on the road as they do at home. Not to mention the Pistons have just two wins over the Spurs in the last nine meetings. I'll lay the small line with the Spurs at home.
