The Pistons have lost 13 of 16 games this season and are currently on a five-game home losing streak with the Portland Trail Blazers (9-6) coming to town. Portland hasn't lost to Detroit since February 2, 2008.
Portland can close out a somewhat disappointing six-game road trip on a high note with another win vs. the Pistons. They won their last game, a 98-84 victory in Toronto on Friday, and a win on Saturday night would salvage a .500 trip.
The Pistons have lost four straight games overall, including a 98-81 drubbing against the Memphis Grizzlies last night. Detroit will have to get out to a quick start to beat the Blazers for the first time in eight tries, but they average the least amount of points in the first half (40.8) and are the NBA's lowest scoring team overall.
Tip off is set for 7:30 p.m.
