Matchup History

Since joining the NBA in 1949 and moving from Fort Wayne, Indiana to Detroit, Michigan in 1957, the Pistons have played the Philadelphia 76ers 380 times, with the Sixers holding an impressive 223-157 advantage. The Pistons, a team that in the 1980s built its reputation on toughness by dubbing themselves "The Bad Boys" and boasting All-Star names like Isiah Thomas and Dennis Rodman, still surrendered to Julius Erving on December 11, 1982, when “Dr. J” recorded his career high in field goals made (20).

After years of boasting prolific talent, like Grant Hill, Rasheed Wallace, Ben Wallace, and Chauncey Billups, the Pistons are reloading with young talent through the NBA Draft, with the first overall pick from 2021, Cade Cunningham, rising star Jaden Ivey, and others. During the 2022-23 season, the Sixers swept the Pistons in their three matchups. Their final matchup of that season was January 10, 2023 with a blowout win of 147-116, and Tyrese Maxey recorded his 100th career steal.

The 76ers and Pistons face off one more time in the 2023-24 season. Their first matchup of the season on November 10 was in the first NBA In-Season Tournament, where the Sixers defeated the Pistons on the road with a final score of 114-106. Harris, Embiid and Maxey combined for 86 points. On December 13, the 76ers visited Detroit, winning 129-111. Embiid recorded 41 points in the first three quarters. Their back-to-back game at the Center on December 15 resulted in another commanding win from the Sixers with a final score of 124-92.
