Detroit Pistons vs. Golden State Warriors News and Preview | NBA Picks
Moreover, in the Pistons’ 135-108 home loss versus the Suns on Sunday, Cade Cunningham and Cory Joseph each amassed 21 points in their performances. Trey Lyles closed out his showing with 18 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 19 minutes played. Although Detroit stayed with Phoenix in the opening quarter, the team surrendered 71 points in the second half. Plus, the Suns outrebounded them 51 to 32. They are now 7-14 at home, 3-18 away and 9-12 ATS on the road this season.
Meanwhile, on Sunday, in the Warriors’ 119-99 road loss against the Timberwolves, guard Jordan Poole led his team in scoring, putting up 20 points in 33 minutes played. Jonathan Kuminga contributed 19 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.0 assist in 33 minutes on the court, too. Offensively this was a dreadful day for Golden State. They shot 32-for-82 (39%) from the field. Now, the team is 13-9 away, 18-3 at home and 14-6-1 ATS at home this season.
Furthermore, Detroit has not defeated Golden State since Jan. 4, 2020, when the Pistons won 111-104 at Chase Center. In other news, Stephen Curry will return for this game; he is no longer listed on the injury report. However, bettors should not expect the guard to score over 35 points. It could happen, but the seven-time All-Star might take it slow in this one. As of right now, Curry is averaging 26.3 points, 5.4 rebounds and 6.0 assists per game. Other NBA picks are on the main page.
Steph Curry isn’t listed on the injury report tomorrow against the Pistons. He will return to open the Warriors’ homestand. Gary Payton II is questionable. Missed the previous two games with back spasms.
