The Detroit Pistons will look to snap a two game losing streak at the end of a road trip in the Mile High City against the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday.
The Denver Nuggets have looked far more likely to make the playoffs this season than the Detroit Pistons, but they got dealt a bit of a blow in their last game when Danilo Gallinari and Andre Miller went down with injury.
Detroit will try and snap a two game losing streak with a win on Wednesday night over the Nuggets in Denver, with far fewer injuries to their name. Greg Monroe and Tayshaun Prince both performed well in the Pistons last game, a loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, and will need to pour in the points to take advantage of the injured Nuggets. This game will conclude the five game road trip that Detroit has been on the past week.
The Pistons have lost their last three games against the Denver Nuggets and will need to contain one of the NBA's best offenses, as the Nuggets have averaged 103.5 points per game. Watch for former Wizard JaVale McGee to get his first minutes as a Nugget after being traded for Nene at the trade deadline.
The game will be at Pepsi Center at 9:00 p.m. ET.
