MEMPHIS – The Pistons have their first winning streak of the season. A modest two-gamer, but a winning streak nonetheless. Pushing it any farther won’t be easy, given that the next step comes on the road against arguably the NBA’s best team of the season’s first month, but Corey Maggette wanted to make sure the Pistons maximized their odds.
The Detroit Pistons have played well over the last two weeks. Whether they've improved enough to beat the team with the NBA's best record remains to be seen.
Hoping to turn things around on the road, the Pistons try for a third consecutive victory Friday night while looking to avoid a sixth straight defeat to the Memphis Grizzlies.
One change, one dramatic new look. With only one alteration to the starting lineup incurred, the Pistons appear to have found the right balance between first and second units, between scoring and defending – and between winning more and losing less.
Greater change comes below the surface. The only constant to the second unit from the start of November to its end: rookie Andre Drummond.
