DET vs NOP DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Detroit Pistons will be aiming to snap their three-game losing streak when they host New Orleans Pelicans in an NBA match at Little Caesars Arena, in Midtown Detroit, on Sunday night (IST).

 

Detroit Pistons:

An 11-game stretch from November 8 till December 2nd saw Piston winning an incredible nine times, including the wins over Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets and Toronto Raptors.

That period could have been negative considering the profile of the teams they faced, but the team came out unscathed, and are very much in contention to finish in the playoff positions. Coming into this match, they are 6th in the Eastern Conference, three wins better than 9th placed Washington Wizards.

However, the current phase in a testing one as the team is now on a three-game losing streak, two on the road against Oklahoma City Thunder and Philadelphia 76ers, and against Milwaukee Bucks on the road. Two of those games also saw them struggling very badly inside the rim, failing to go past the 100-point mark as well.

 

New Orleans Pelicans:

New Orleans Pelicans’ record this season is 13-14, moving to the negative zone after they fell to Memphis Grizzlies 103-107 in front of their own fans.

Pelicans started the season with a bang and deservedly capped the rights to be termed as one of the favourites in the West to rival Golden State Warriors for the conference premiership. But an untimely injury to Anthony Davis unravelled the very fabric of the team.

Though Davis came back fit and joined the team sooner than expected but the team is struggling for consistency since then.

In the last 10 games, New Orleans have lost seven times, including the fourth home loss against Grizzlies in the last game.

 

Regular Season Record-
Detroit Pistons: W-13, L-10
New Orleans Pelicans: W-13, L-14

 

Players to watch out for:
Detroit Pistons:
Blake Griffin – Had an absolute humdinger of a match just a few days ago, as he scored a team-high 31 points and racked up 12 rebounds as well. He took his average to 25.1 points per game for the season. This was also his third 30+ score in the last six games. Definitely a player in form and a candidate to be a star player in your NBA fantasy team.
Andre Drummond – He has been in Detroit Pistons since 2012, and this season is easily his best. The 25-year-old is dropping 18.1 points per game this season, which is way higher than his career average of 13.8. He also had a very good outing in the last match against Philadelphia 76ers, scoring 21 points in the match.

 

New Orleans Pelicans:

Anthony Davis – Started the season with a bang, averaging way almost 36 points. But an untimely injury thwarted his season to some degrees. But he is back to his very best of late, now scoring 27.8 points per game this season. Davis scored 25 points in the last match.
Jrue Holiday – The player with the joint-most games for Pelicans this season has also spent the 2nd most minutes on the court is Jrue Holiday. The 28-year-old is the only other player in Pelicans’ rank to average in the 20s.
