Detroit Pistons's Latest Performance :
The Pistons have now lost three games in a row after starting off the season 4-0. They will look bounce back after a heartbreaking loss against the Nets that came down to the very last shot. The last time these two teams met Blake Griffin put up a season-best 50 points as he will be looking to replicate that performance on Saturday. Caris LeVert had 19 points, six rebounds, and six assists, while Joe Harris had 23 on 8-for-14 shooting against the Nets in their last game. Drummond will be looking for a win in this game so look for him to be aggressive from the very start in his last game he posted 24 points, 23 rebounds, two blocks and one steal with ten offensive rebound. He finished 8-of-14 from the field and 8-of-10 from the line. The Pistons are hoping to snap their three-game losing streak against the Sixers on the road.
Philadelphia 76ers's Latest Performance :
The Sixers were able to bounce back after a blowout loss against the Raptors to blow out the Clippers in their next game. The Clippers had no answer for Emiid in this game as he posted a season-high 41 points he was dominant from the very start. He posted his second 20-point first half of the season and became the first Sixer to score 40+ in Philly since Hall of Famer Allen Iverson in 2006. He will be looking to have a great game against the Pistons as he scored 33 points last time these two teams met. He will be responsible for Blake Griffin in this game. Ben Simmons scored 14 points (6-of-11 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs) with three rebounds, 11 assists with only two turnovers it was a great bounce-back game after a tough matchup against the Raptors. This game should go down to the wire as the Sixers would not want to lose to the Pistons for the second time this season.
