Spread: Detroit +2.5

Outlook: The Pistons are a team in disarray. They’ve lost four straight, their longest losing streak in four years.

The good news is four of their opponent’s five starters aren’t meeting expectations.

The bad news is the other one is Chris Paul.

The bad news is Detroit will likely start small ball again.

The bad news is Tayshaun Prince will probably defend David West instead Peja Stojakovic, and Richard Hamilton will have to deal with Stojakovic.

New Orleans is an excellent team, and the Pistons are reeling. This game has loss written all over it.
