The last time the Pistons (4–15) and the Lakers (10–11) played, Detroit fell at home to snap a three-game losing streak for Los Angeles.
Since then, the Lakers have lost two of three. The Lakers are hovering just under .500 with the second-worst defense in the NBA, a far cry from NBA title contention.

The Lakers lost a triple-overtime thriller to the lowly Kings in their most recent contest.
In the Lakers' last game against the Pistons, LeBron James elbowed Detroit's Isaiah Stewart, giving him a cut under his eye. Stewart charged at James afterward, and both players were ejected and later suspended. James got a one-game suspension for the flagrant foul and Stewart two games for escalating the situation.
Both players should be available for tonight's game. However, James (abdominal) is questionable.
This season, the Lakers have struggled defensively. They are fouling at a very high rate (20.7 per game, third-most in the NBA) and allowing the second-most free throw attempts per game (23.7).
On the other side, the Pistons come in having lost five in a row, their third losing streak of at least four games in their first 19 games overall. They also have the worst scoring offense in the NBA at 98.6 points per game. They have scored less than 100 points in 11 out of 19 games this season.
