The Brooklyn Nets need a win after losing three of their last four games. The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 121.5 points on 49.8 percent shooting and allowing 118.2 points on 46.1 percent shooting. Kevin Durant is averaging 29.5 points and 5.2 assists while Kyrie Irving is averaging 27.5 points and 4.8 rebounds. James Harden is the third double-digit scorer and Joe Harris is dishing two assists. The Brooklyn Nets are shooting 40 percent from beyond the arc and 81.8 percent from the free throw line. The Brooklyn Nets are allowing 36 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.8 rebounds per game.
The Detroit Pistons look to snap a four-game losing streak. The Detroit Pistons are averaging 108.4 points on 42.8 percent shooting and allowing 113.7 points on 48.5 percent shooting. Jerami Grant is averaging 24 points and 5.6 rebounds while Derrick Rose is averaging 14.2 points and 4.2 assists.

The Detroit Pistons are allowing 39.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.8 rebounds per game.
The Nets are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Pistons are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Tuesday games. The over is 7-1 in Nets last 8 road games. The under is 5-2 in Pistons last 7 home games. The Nets are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Detroit and 15-6 ATS in the last 21 meetings.
The Brooklyn Nets are possibly the most talented roster in the league, but they're still not playing much defense and aren't covering numbers. The Detroit Pistons are a team I've faded a ton this season, but the effort has improved lately, which includes taking the Lakers to double overtime, and they're only losing at home by an average of 0.6 points. There's better options out there, but I'd grab the points with the Pistons if forced to pick this contest.
