Winners of seven of nine, the Detroit Pistons might feel like their season-opening eight-game losing streak was ages ago.
To continue the success, they'll try Saturday night to knock off a Utah Jazz team that has won 14 of 16 in the series.
The Pistons (14-23) return home, where they've won five of six, after beating Milwaukee 103-87 on Friday. They held the Bucks to 39.6 percent shooting and 38 points after halftime.
