The Detroit Pistons and Toronto Raptors are finishing disappointing seasons. Even if the condensed schedule or multiple injuries have contributed to the losing, neither coach wants to hear the excuses.

Detroit hosts Toronto on Sunday night in a matchup of teams looking to break out of slumps.

The Pistons (23-40) are coming off a 2-4 stretch in which they played six games in eight days, falling 91-80 to visiting Minnesota on Thursday before finally getting consecutive days off.

The injury-riddled Minnesota Timberwolves haven't managed a win in April in three years.

They only have three more chances to end that stunning streak, but a meeting with the Detroit Pistons could be just what they need to do it.

The visiting Timberwolves look to end their 27-game losing streak in April by winning a fourth straight over what could be a tired Pistons team Thursday night.
