It didn't take the Detroit Pistons long to get back to their losing ways.
After ending their NBA-record 28-game losing streak against the Raptors, the Pistons promptly got eviscerated by the Rockets to squash out any slight glimmer of hope generated from their lone win.
I suppose they needed a night off after that hard-fought victory against the Raptors. I wonder what it must be like to win three games in a row! Imagine winning five in a row! Dare to dream.
The Pistons regained their form against the Rockets, as they turned the ball over egregiously and the bench reverted to being awful as they have been for most of the season.
So if you thought that win might be a turning point in the season, think again, as if it was, the Pistons just kept turning until they were right back where they started, which is the worst team in the NBA.
Tonight they continue their West Coast road trip with a late game against the Utah Jazz, but who will be playing? And will it really matter anyway?
Detroit Pistons vs. Utah Jazz injury update
The Pistons already lost to a shorthanded Jazz team recently, and that was at home and with Utah on the second game of a back-to-back.
Tonight both teams will be near full strength, as the Jazz don't have anyone currently listed on their injury report. The Pistons will be missing Isaiah Stewart and Monte Morris.
Stewart will be out at least another week with his sprained toe and Morris isn't expected back until the end of January at the earliest.
How to watch Pistons vs Jazz
This game has a late tip-off at 9:00 PM ET (god I hate these West Coast games) and you can watch on Bally Sports Detroit or listen on 97.1 The Ticket FM.
NBA League Pass is your best legal streaming option if you live outside of Detroit, or you can get a free trial at FUBOtv.
Hopefully, Detroit will figure out that they are allowed to win more than one game in a week and start a new, positive streak tonight in Utah.
