The Detroit Pistons host the Boston Celtics on Sunday evening four days after beating the C's by ten points on the parquet floor in Boston.

The Pistons followed up their win in Boston with a 114-108 win over Sacramento on Friday to continue their strongest stretch of the season which as seen the Pistons win six of their last eight games. That is quite a turn-around after a 4-20 start to the season.

Detroit is getting it done with a mix of young and veteran talent coming together. Second-year center Greg Monroe leads the Pistons with 16.2 points and 9.7 rebounds per game while rookie points guard Brandon Knight is averaging 12.6 points and coming off big game against Sacramento with 23 points, 10 assists and 6 rebounds. Vets Rodney Stuckey, Ben Gordon and Tayshaun Prince are all averaging double figures to offer a balance attack for Lawrence Frank's team.

The Celtics are looking to turn things around having lost four of their last five games while averaging less than 85 points per game. The C's followed up the loss at home to Detroit with a loss at Chicago the next night. The negative change in fortune for Boston comes after they appeared to be gaining positive traction with five consecutive wins.
