The Bottom Line

Detroit has been on the losing side of things quite a bit this season. They have had injuries to important players all season long, most notably, Cade Cunningham. Tonight, the Pistons' injury list is as long as it’s ever been this season. The Wizards are playing with house money tonight despite being on the road. This should be an easy victory for them. However, the Pistons have developed rookie guard Jaden Ivey quite well. The Wizards will have to make sure he doesn’t get going. The recent acquisition of big man James Wiseman has been a win for them too. The Wizards will have to keep him off the boards tonight to limit Detroit’s opportunities.
