Blake Griffin is averaging 24.6 points and 7.6 rebounds while Andre Drummond is averaging 17.4 points and 15.5 rebounds. Reggie Jackson is the third double-digit scorer and Wayne Ellington is grabbing 1.9 rebounds.

The Golden State Warriors look for a victory here after splitting their last 12 games. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 117.6 points on 48.7 percent shooting and allowing 111.4 points on 44.6 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 27.8 points and 5.3 assists while Kevin Durant is averaging 27 points and 6.6 rebounds. Klay Thompson is the third double-digit scorer and DeMarcus Cousins is grabbing eight rebounds. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 37.9 percent from beyond the arc and 80.4 percent from the free throw line. The Golden State Warriors are allowing 34.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.3 rebounds per game. The Golden State Warriors have lost four of their last six home games.
The Pistons are 5-11 ATS in their last 16 Sunday games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Warriors are 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 0 days rest, 7-19-1 ATS in their last 27 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Pistons are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings and the underdog is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The under is 16-5 in Warriors last 21 overall. The under is 4-1 in Pistons last 5 road games.
The Detroit Pistons beat the Warriors back in December as 4.5-point underdogs and have actually won three of the last six meetings. The Golden State Warriors are coming off a blowout loss last night to the Dallas Mavericks, and while they didn't have Steph Curry, a blowout loss to the Mavs is bad no matter how you slice it. The Pistons have the size that has given the Warriors issues in the past, and Golden State is just 16-16 ATS this season when a favorite of nine or more points. I'm going to take a shot with the boatload of free points with the Pistons.
