The Detroit Pistons are set to host the Washington Wizards on Monday night.

Wizards’ defensive woes continuing

It has been nothing short of a roller coaster type of season for the Wizards that has been largely impacted by notable injuries to their roster. It has largely put them in a tight spot of trying to claw back into the playoff picture currently sitting on the outside looking in. The Wizards have had much difficulty putting forward a consistent effort without the services of both All-Star point guard John Wall and big man Dwight Howard. Despite winning their last two straight games, Washington has dropped six out of their last 10 contests. It has seen them make some moves prior to the trade deadline to bring in some help with forwards Jabari Parker and Bobby Portis in hopes of solidifying their bench and adding more offensive weapons to the mix. This has seen both of them play some big factors in their first two games with the team each playing pivotal roles in pushing them to back-to-back wins.

Portis has been a major offensive factor with two straight double-digit outings that include a 30-point outing, which made him the first player to score at least 30 points in back-to-back games with two different teams. Meanwhile, Parker is coming off a 20-point outing in his first game against the Chicago Bulls following the trade to the Wizards. However, what may come to their detriment is their lack of efficiency defensively as they have been one of the worst teams in the league on that end of the floor. The Wizards are currently 29th in the league giving up 116.6 points per contest along with being 27th allowing opponents to shoot 47.6 percent from the field and last with opponents shooting 37.4 percent from beyond the arc. This has seen them give up strong performances against two of the worst teams offensively in the league in the Cleveland Cavaliers and Bulls with the latter scoring 125 points on Saturday night. This will be the deciding factor on Monday night that will come to their detriment.

Pistons led by dynamic frontcourt

Following a strong start to the year, the Pistons have been making a push back into the playoff picture in the Eastern Conference over the last few weeks. It has seen them grab three straight wins that have pushed themselves just a 0.5 game out of the final playoff spot behind the Miami Heat. This has seen them put forth a promising stretch of games that has seen them having topped the Denver Nuggets and ease by the lowly New York Knicks in back-to-back games that have them in a spot to potentially make a push to the playoffs. It has seen their┬ádynamic frontcourt duo of All-Star forward Blake Griffin and former All-Star big man Andre Drummond that have led the way offensively especially in the last few games played. Drummond has picked it up offensively in the five games as he’s averaging 21.8 points and 15.8 rebounds along with shooting 75.8 percent from the floor.

This includes Drummond pouring in a double-double in each game while posting a pair of 20-point/20-rebound performances during that span. This has pushed him to nine of these such outings this year, which matches the most such games for any NBA player in a single season since the 2011-12 campaign when Dwight Howard accomplished that feat. Meanwhile, Griffin has been their driving force offensively throughout the year as he has been putting together a resurgent campaign that has been arguably his best year in the league. He is averaging a career-high 26.1 points while shooting 47.7 percent from the floor. Griffin has turned it up a notch over the last five games that has seen him notch four 20-point outings with a pair of double-doubles. Their balanced offensive production should be enough to pace them past the Wizards toward helping the Pistons toward their to yet another highly productive outing.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Although it has been a season full of ups and downs, the Pistons will get back on track on their home floor. The strong play of Drummond and Griffin as of late will be too much for the Wizards to handle defensively that will pace them a comfortable win. It’s a contest that will ultimately be dictated by the Wizards’ lack of efficiency defensively.

Prediction: Detroit -4

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The Pistons may have a favorable matchup against the Wizards’ porous defense, they have had some notable struggles offensively. It will be a contest that will be a lower-scoring affair between two teams trying to get into the playoff picture. Keep in mind, the under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between both teams.

Prediction: Under 220
