Detroit should feel comfortable at home against Charlotte.
Detroit ended their road swing with a thud and a 83-71 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Friday night. The Pistons' playoff hopes have faded with the resurgence of the New York Knicks as Detroit struggles to play at a .500 pace with a record well below .500 at 18-33. Greg Monroe and Rodney Stuckey continue to lead the way for the Pistons as the young players continue working toward the end of the season.
Charlotte remains alone at the bottom of the NBA with a 7-42 record as they continue limping through the season looking forward to the NBA draft. The Bobcats lost Friday to Denver, 99-88 which marked their sixth straight loss. Charlotte will be happy to put March behind them as they arrive in Detroit tonight with a 3-13 record for the month.
The game tips off at 7:30 p.m. ET and will be televised on Fox Sports Detroit.
