Speaking of how well or bad teams are playing since the All-Star Break, the Pistons are trash. Even after trading for Blake Griffin, the Pistons’ offense is still terrible, and tonight on the road, Detroit might struggle to score on the Blazers.

Since the All-Star Break, the Pistons have played seven road games and they have an offensive rating of 96 points per 100 possessions during that stretch.

Now they have to play a Blazers team coming into tonight with 11 straight wins SU, and they should have no issues beating up on the Blazers tonight.

When Portland was struggling in February, they lost to the Pistons in Detroit. However, tonight they should be ready to dish out some payback. The Blazers have been dominant ATS versus the East this season, cashing 15-11 ATS of their games.

The Pistons have also played well against the West, but they have not done well lately, going 2-6 ATS in their last eight games against the Western Conference.

Considering the Pistons’ defense is slowly falling apart, giving up 109.2 points per game over their last five, I see Portland tearing up the lowly Pistons tonight. Even though the NBA Odds are pretty steep at -8 ½, laying the points is the way to go.
