The Washington Wizards and the Detroit Pistons meet in NBA preseason action from Little Caesars Arena on Wednesday night.
The Washington Wizards will look to keep their momentum going after back-to-back victories, including a 110-98 win over New York in their last outing. Bradley Beal led the way with 20 points on 7 of 10 shooting while Jeff Green added 16 points also shooting 7 of 10 from the floor with a pair of threes. John Wall added 14 points with team-highs of 6 rebounds and 9 assists while Kelly Oubre Jr. added 13 points and Otto Porter Jr. added 12 points with 6 boards of his own to round out the scoring in double figures for the Wizards in the win.

The Detroit Pistons will be looking to bounce back from back-to-back losses and get back to .500 in the preseason after dropping to 1-2 with a 110-108 loss to Brooklyn last time out. Langston Galloway led the Pistons with 24 points coming on 9 of 17 shooting with 4 threes while Blake Griffin chipped in 17 points.

Trends will be updated once they’ve been released.
Washington has had no issues scoring the basketball, putting up the 3rd-most points so far in the preseason while the Pistons sit dead last and are the only team with less than 100 points per game so far in the preseason which has me leaning towards the Wizards here but ultimately I need to see a line before making my final prediction so please check back for your free pick once a line has been released.
