What you need to know about the Trail Blazers
Portland has to be aching after a bruising 129-107 loss to the Utah Jazz on Monday. This matchup was a close 53-49 at the break, but unfortunately for Portland that was as close as it would get. One thing holding Portland back was the mediocre play of small forward Nassir Little, who finished with only seven points on 3-for-10 shooting in his 26 minutes on the court.
Portland's defensive issues under first-year head coach Chauncey Billups continue. During their three-game slide, the Trail Blazers have allowed an average of 124 points per game. A matchup with the Pistons could be just what the doctor ordered, however. Detroit has scored an average of 100.8 points per game during its losing streak, and doesn't really have a great option to matchup with Damian Lillard.
What you need to know about the Pistons
Meanwhile, Detroit was close but no cigar on Sunday as they fell 110-106 to the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday. Despite the defeat, the Pistons got a solid performance out of power forward Jerami Grant, who had 32 points along with six boards.
The Pistons are currently in a tie with the Houston Rockets for the second-worst record in the NBA. While they do have some talented pieces on their roster, the Pistons are headed towards another year in the NBA Draft lottery. Grant has excelled in his role with Detroit, but its hard to see Detroit's backcourt keeping pace with Lillard and CJ McCollum in this game.
