Spread: Detroit +2

Outlook: The Pistons will be looking for a repeat performance against the Bulls from Rodney Stuckey, who scored 40 points the last time the teams met.

Stuckey has fallen off lately. He has scored eight or fewer points in three of the last four games. The All-Star break may give Stuckey, who already has already played 371 more minutes than last year, some much-needed rest.

But the Pistons will likely need him strong tonight. Allen Iverson and Richard Hamilton have taken control of Detroit’s offense in the last two games, and Iverson is questionable for tonight’s game with the flu.
