Pistons Schedule 2012: Weekend Back To Back Has Detroit Meeting Atlanta And Philadelphia

The 4-15 Detroit Pistons continue to slump through the 2012 season, with only two wins in the entire month of December. They'll have no room to rest up and think about how bad they're playing as they start a chain of four games in five days this weekend.

The first game of a weekend back to back comes on Friday as the Atlanta Hawks soar to The Palace. The Hawks recently lost to the San Antonio Spurs as the Hawks tend to do, but are still having a fine season at 13-6 with plenty of talent to go around on the team.

The second game will see the awful road team that is Detroit visit the consistently spread covering Philadelphia 76ers. The 76ers have riden some decent offensive performences to a 12-6 record, good for first place in the Atlantic division, helped as well by awful seasons from the favorite Boston Celtics and New York Knicks.

With another back to back starting on Monday, it's going to be a long weekend for the Pistons.

NBA Power Rankings 2012: Detroit Pistons In The Basement At 26th

The Detroit Pistons are not having a very good season, I don't think that's particularly surprising to anyone. They did finally get a rare win when they beat the Portland Trail Blazers at home but Tom Ziller was not impressed in the most recent SBnation Power Rankings. He has the Pistons down in the power ranking basement at 26th overall, ahead of only Sacramento, Washington, Charlotte and Toronto. But hey, not last, right?

26. Detroit Pistons 4-13 W: POR; L: HOU, MIN, MEM Detroit Bad Boys

The Pistons are one of five serious contenders for the league's worst record; stunning home wins over the Blazers are not going to get the job done, Rodney Stuckey.

The Pistons have plenty of chances to win this week with four games on the schedule, so they should have ample opportunity to climb a bit out of the hole they've put themselves into.

Pistons Vs. Thunder: Detroit Seeks A Rare Road Win In Oklahoma City

To say that the Detroit Pistons have not been doing very well recently would be a massive understatement. Even their recent victory over the Portland Trailblazers didn't help their anemic 4-13 record and they've still lost eight of their last ten games with the other victory coming against the similarly hapless Charlotte Bobcats.

Meanwhile, the Oklahoma City Thunder are still bitter about their dropout to the Dallas Mavericks in last season's playoffs and are doing well this season to make up for it. Kevin Durant has led the Thunder to a 13-3 record and though they did drop a game to the Washington Wizards -- that'd be the worst team in the NBA -- they're still one of the teams to beat in the NBA right now.

The bad news for the Pistons is that tonight's game will be at Oklahoma City, and the Pistons have been absolutely awful on the road so far this season with only a single win against Charlotte to show for themselves away from The Palace this season. They've only twice scored 90+ points on the road as well and against a powerful Thunder offense that could spell bad news for this reeling Detroit team.
