What you need to know about the Pistons

The Pistons are coming off a 100-92 loss to the Miami Heat on Tuesday night that extended their losing streak to three games. Jerami Grant had 21 points, seven rebounds and three assists in the loss but shot just 6-of-17 from the floor. Grant had 36 points on Sunday night in a loss to the Lakers and is now averaging 19.4 points per game for the season but is shooting just 40.6 percent from the floor.

With Grant struggling from the floor, No. 1 overall pick Cade Cunningham shooting just 34.1 percent from the floor and Saddiq Bey shooting just 37.0 percent this season, Detroit currently ranks 28th in the NBA in offensive rating (101.3). With that trio expected to carry a heavy scoring load, the Pistons will be hoping for a turnaround starting with the defending champions on Wednesday night.

What you need to know about the Bucks

After dealing with COVID issues and injuries early in the season, Milwaukee has won four games in a row entering Wednesday night's action. On Monday, the Bucks hammered the Magic 123-92 and used incredibly balanced scoring to do so.

Last year's NBA champions had seven players score in double-figures and got 53 points from their bench in the victory. Milwaukee also assisted on 28 of its 44 made field goals and shot 18-of-45 from the 3-point line. The Pistons rank 28th in the NBA this season in opponents' 3-point shooting percentage (38.9) and the Bucks went 17-for-37 from beyond the arc in their head-to-head matchup earlier this month. So, expect Khris Middleton and the rest of the squad's shooters to play a major role.
