The Detroit Pistons take on the Utah Jazz tonight after having their game against the Nuggets postponed due to COVID protocol.

The Pistons didn’t fare well against the Jazz the last time they played, scoring only 86 points after getting out to a slow start.

The Utah Jazz have been one of the best teams in the NBA this season, so don’t expect the Detroit Pistons to go on the road and get a win.

Wins and losses are only part of the storyline this year and there are some bigger narratives underlying the game against the Utah Jazz.

Here are three important stories to follow.

Detroit Pistons: Jerami Grant’s All-Star campaign

Fans of the Detroit Pistons have little to cheer for this season other than the improvement of the young players and the ascension of Jerami Grant.

Grant has been one of the surprises of the season and it looks as though the Detroit Pistons have a future star to build around.

He is never going to get much love from the national media as long as the Pistons stink, so the fans are going to have to get him to the All-Star game.

Grant scored 28 points against the Utah Jazz the last time they played, so this would be a good night for him to go off again.

When your team is not good, the individual success of certain players becomes something to cheer for. Jerami Grant has been one of these guys and he deserves to be part of the All-Star experience.
