The Detroit Pistons hope to snap their 24-game losing streak tonight at home against the Utah Jazz.

This will be Detroit's best chance at a win, as they are fully rested and the Jazz are on the second game of a back-to-back after losing to the Cavaliers last night.

The books agree as the Pistons are just two-point underdogs at home tonight according to Fanduel. This is the lowest a spread has been in some time, though it's still pathetic to be giving points to a team as bad as Utah on your home floor.

If the Pistons don't get a win tonight at home, then the NBA's all-time losing streak is in play, as they will then have a road/home series vs. Brooklyn before going on the road to face the Eastern Conference leading Boston Celtics.

The Pistons are just three losses away from breaking the record for consecutive losses in a single season and just five away from the all-time record. They probably need to win tonight to avoid making more dubious history.

Is Isaiah Stewart playing tonight? Pistons vs. Jazz injury update

The Pistons did get some good news, as Isaiah Stewart has been upgraded to probable for tonight's game vs. the Jazz. Of course, when one player comes off the injury list, another must go on, so Killian Hayes has been downgraded to probable with an illness.

The Pistons have sorely missed Stewart on the defensive end and he would be a welcome addition to the starting five or bench tonight.

Monte Morris and Jalen Duren will still be out for the Pistons. The Pistons did offer some positive news regarding Duren, as he is now doing some light work and starting to ramp up for a return.

Jordan Clarkson is out for the Jazz and Omer Yurtseven and Keyonte George are likely to be out as well, though it has not yet been made official.

The Pistons need a boost and will hopefully be buoyed by a home crowd of diehards (who else would go see them right now) who don't want to see their team in the history books for all the wrong reasons.
