Pistons Vs. Kings: Detroit Looks To Continue Hot Streak

The Detroit Pistons welcome the Sacramento Kings to The Palace at Auburn Hills on Friday, with the Pistons on a hot streak and the Kings on a cold.

The Detroit Pistons and Sacramento Kings are both teams that are a bit down in the dumps this season, but the Pistons are on quite a high comparatively. Detroit have ridden hot streaks by Greg Monroe and, more recently, Rodney Stuckey to the tune of five wins in their last seven games, including a win over the Boston Celtics where Monroe and Stuckey combined for 47 points.

Sacramento, on the other hand, have lost three straight games now and have looked discombobulated all season long, going through players and even a new coach to get to their 10-19 record. Combine that with the fact that they've been flat out dominated by Detroit in recent years -- losing nine of their last 13 matchups -- and the Pistons look to have the advantage going into Friday's game.

The game will be at The Palace at Auburn Hills at 7:30 PM ET.
