Coach Lawrence Frank is trying to get the Detroit Pistons to be more unselfish.

Getting their first win of the season would certainly make that a lot easier.

The Pistons look to break into the win column for the first time with their sixth consecutive victory over the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night.

Detroit (0-4) remained one of only two winless teams in the NBA after falling 109-97 at Denver on Tuesday.

DENVER – The Pistons have something of a chicken-or-the-egg conundrum going with their offense as they sit at 0-3 heading into tonight’s game at Denver: Is Greg Monroe struggling to score inside because guards Rodney Stuckey and Brandon Knight are shooting a combined 20.7 percent? Or are Stuckey and Knight misfiring so frequently because Monroe, a .530 career shooter, is making only 40 percent of his shots?

Two of the NBA's four winless teams meet Tuesday night, though one of them being without a victory comes as a bigger surprise than the other.

After a disheartening three-game road trip, the Denver Nuggets open their home schedule against the Detroit Pistons with both teams looking to get on track offensively.

Denver was stunned in the finale of its trip, losing 119-116 to Miami on Saturday as Ray Allen's four-point play with 6.7 seconds gave Denver its first 0-3 start in six years.

DENVER – If you’re not following along with your pocket schedule as this eternal Pistons road trip bumps along, let me catch you up to date. They’ve left the frying pan, headed for the fire.

A day after playing the 0-3 and angry Los Angeles Lakers, the Pistons headed east for a Tuesday date with the 0-3 and peeved Denver Nuggets. That starts a stretch of four games in five nights. Yeah, life isn’t presenting the Pistons any breaks as they scramble to crawl out of the 0-3 hole in which their 2012-13 season presently sits.
