Pistons Vs. Jazz: Detroit Seeks Rare Road Win In Utah

The Detroit Pistons almost never win on the road in Utah, but they get another chance when they play the Jazz on Monday.

The Detroit Pistons have been mediocre at best all season, but the upcoming tough stretch of ten games, mostly on the road, will test the team's mettle and ability to perhaps be a dark horse for a low playoff seed in the weak Eastern conference. They'll start Monday night against the Utah Jazz, who the Pistons haven't beat on the road in a long, long time.

It's probably the best timing for the Pistons to travel to Utah with guys like Greg Monroe and Rodney Stuckey currently hitting on all cylinders but it will still be an uphill battle to get the win in Utah, where they've only won two games since 1989.

The road has been tough to the Pistons all season, even as they've started to win general games more often they've still been unable to win away from The Palace of Auburn Hills. The Pistons are currently only 3-15, with two of those wins coming after their terrible losing streak that led them into February. The Jazz are currently 14-6 at home.

A Pistons win would be the first four game winning streak of the season for Detroit. Utah has lost two straight in the midst of a long road trip ending with the Pistons visit.

The game will be at EnergySolutions Arena at 9 P.M. Eastern time.
