The Detroit Pistons (2-8) have fallen on hard times, not only losing five straight games, but losing badly in each of five straight games. They will have a chance to reverse their fortunes when they pay a visit to Milwaukee to take on the Milwaukee Bucks (3-6) on Thursday night at the Bradley Center, but it won't be easy.

While the Bucks are just 1.5 games ahead of the Pistons in the standings, they boast a 3-0 record at home, and the Pistons are 0-4 on the road. Detroit has lost every road game by at least 11 points, and they have lost by an average of 20.0 points during their current five-game losing streak. Not surprisingly, the Pistons have the NBA' s worst differential, at -12.0 points per game.

Not all has been negative for Detroit: Eighth overall draft pick Brandon Knight has played reasonably well for a rookie, averaging 13.5 points while filling it at starting point guard for Rodney Stuckey (groin).

Meanwhile, the Bucks are coming off a 106-103 home win on Tuesday against the San Antonio Spurs, who coincidentally also have yet to win on the road this season.

The game is scheduled to start in Milwaukee at 8:00 p.m. eastern.
