The Golden State Warriors and the Detroit Pistons collide at Little Caesars Arena on Tuesday night.
The Golden State Warriors will be aiming for a second straight victory after arresting a two-game slide with a 129-128 win over the Bulls on Sunday. Stephen Curry led the team with 36 points and six assists, Andrew Wiggins added 19 points with nine rebounds and four assists, while Eric Paschall chipped in with 15 points off the bench. As a team, the Warriors shot just 40 percent from the field and 18 of 47 from the 3-point line as they found themselves trailing late in the game until Damion Lee hit the game-winning 3-pointers with just 1.7 seconds remaining to steal the game late.
Meanwhile, the Detroit Pistons are still searching for their first win of the season and they will be hoping to bounce back from last night’s 128-120 road loss to the Hawks. Jerami Grant and Josh Jackson each scored 27 points, Delon Wright provided a spark off the bench with 18 points and four assists while Mason Plumlee chipped in with nine points, 12 rebounds and six assists. As a team, the Pistons shot just 43 percent from the field and 13 of 41 from the 3-point line but they were just always two steps behind the Hawks who held onto an early lead by torching them on the outside with 20 3-pointers.
Looking at the betting trends, the Warriors are 1-4 ATS in their last five games against a team with a losing record and 0-4 ATS in their last four games overall. The Pistons are 6-16 ATS in their last 22 home games, 0-4 ATS in their last four games playing on zero days rest and 0-4 ATS in their last four games overall.
Head to head, the over is 5-2 in the last seven meetings overall, the Warriors are 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings in Detroit and the Warriors are 0-5 ATS in the last five meetings overall.
The Warriors are suddenly gunning for a second straight win after suffering two bad losses to start the season and they're a chance to make it two wins in a row as they're up against a struggling Pistons team still looking to get into the win column. Curry was able to lead the Warriors in the fourth quarter against the Bulls and I think he can do it again if they're good enough to keep it close late. The Pistons are desperate for a win, but there are 0-4 ATS in their last four games playing on zero days rest and I think that trend continues here.
