What to Know
The Detroit Pistons haven’t won a game against the San Antonio Spurs since Dec. 1 of 2019, but they’ll be looking to end the drought Saturday. The Pistons will take on San Antonio at 7 p.m. ET at Little Caesars Arena after having had a few days off. Given that these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this contest.
Detroit came up short against the New York Knicks on Wednesday, falling 94-85. Shooting guard Hamidou Diallo put forth a good effort for the losing side as he posted a double-double on 31 points and 13 boards.
Meanwhile, San Antonio’s 2021 ended with a 118-105 loss against the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday. Small forward Keldon Johnson wasn’t much of a difference maker for San Antonio; Johnson played for 27 minutes but put up just six points on 2-for-12 shooting.
Detroit is expected to lose this next one by 5. Now might not be the best time to take the Pistons against the spread since they’ve let down bettors for the past two consecutive games.
Detroit was pulverized by the Spurs 144-109 in the teams’ previous meeting last month. Maybe Detroit will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the matchup and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
