The Detroit Pistons aren't a good basketball team to say the last and are coming off a heartbreaking loss last night to the Rockets, which doesn't do much for their confidence. The Philadelphia 76ers are about as healthy as they've been in a while and are playing well at both ends, which includes a blowout win over the Celtics. The Pistons don't have any answers for these 76ers. I'll lay the chalk with the road team.
