Detroit Pistons Betting

This is the last game of the four-game western conference road trip of the Pistons. It was another tough time on the road for the Pistons on this Western Conference swing and they played the Clippers without Blake Griffin. Bruce Brown let the team with 15 points while four players did 14 points. Andre Drummond had 10 points and 12 rebounds but it was rookie Sekou Doumbouya that showed his potential. The Alaskan rookie had a double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds on starter minutes. Going up against the Warriors, Drummond will most likely dominate but it will be the wing players that will dictate if they will win this game.

Players to watch: A. Drummond C 33 GP 32 GS 33.6 MIN 17.6 PTS 4.3 OR 11.5 DR 15.8 REB 2.7 AST 2 STL 1.8 BLK 3.6 TO 3.7 PF 0.7 AST/TO 22.3 PER

Golden State Warriors Betting

The Warriors struggled against the Timberwolves as Damian Lee only did 4-of-11 from the field and it was subpar as compared to what he was doing. Draymond Green came up with horrible numbers with 2 points and six rebounds in almost 23 minutes. Glen Robinson III was their top scorer with 16 points to go with six rebounds while Odell Spellman came off the bench with 10 points and five rebounds. In order to get ahead over the Pistons, guys like Alec Burks and Damian Lee should be stepping up as they used to in their past games.

Players to Watch: A. Burks SG 33 GP 14 GS 29.2 MIN 15.6 PTS 0.7 OR 3.7 DR 4.4 REB 3 AST 1.3 STL 0.3 BLK 1.5 TO 2.2 PF 2 AST/TO 16.65 PER

Derrick Rose has produced his usual numbers before in the Bulls and he is still the feel-good story of the Pistons.
