The Milwaukee Bucks are starting to come into regular season form, and they already beat the Pistons twice this month, both victories coming by double digits. The Detroit Pistons are in full struggle mode at both ends of the floor and it's to the point where they're probably better off trading some of these veterans and starting a complete rebuild. This will be the third time these teams meet in the last two weeks. The Bucks should get another comfortable victory.
