Why it matters

The Detroit Pistons will be looking to bounce back after a tough loss to the Milwaukee Bucks when they visit the Brooklyn Nets. The game’s main focus will be on the interior battle between Brooklyn’s center Nicolas Claxton and Detroit’s rookie center Jalen Duren. Claxton has been a strong rim protector this season, but Duren outmuscled him in their previous meeting, grabbing 11 rebounds and finishing with a team-high plus/minus of +13. Another key player for Detroit will be Jaden Ivey, who had a career-high 11 assists in the loss to the Bucks and will be looking to continue his strong playmaking. On the Brooklyn side, Kyrie Irving’s offensive wizardry and improved defense will be a major factor in the game, as the Nets are 4th in the Eastern Conference.

  • The Pistons are coming off a 150-130 shellacking at the hands of the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night and will be looking to redeem themselves.
  • The Nets are currently sitting 4th in the Eastern Conference and will be playing for the second night in a row.

The Bottom Line
