The Nets crushed the Pistons in their last matchup nine days ago. But Detroit had played the night before and had no legs.
With an off day yesterday and their new no-shoot-arounds-on-gameday policy, the Pistons should be fine today.
As long as they stop Devin Harris. In three games against the Pistons this year, he’s averaging 25.3 points on 54-percent shooting and 7.3 assists.
