Pistons vs. 76ers: Detroit aims for first win of season

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

The Detroit Pistons will be looking to end their opening season eight-game losing streak.

At 0-8, the Detroit Pistons are in the basement of the NBA, but they can begin the slow climb out with a win on Wednesday night over the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers, on the other hand, enter the game with a 4-3 record.

The Sixers have struggled so far this season after dealing Andre Iguodala for Andrew Bynum, who has not played yet this season and is not slated to play for months. In their seven games, the Sixers have defeated the Denver Nuggets, New Orleans Hornets, Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors and have lost to the Milwaukee Bucks and twice to the New York Knicks.

Philadelphia has been led this season by Jrue Holiday, who is having something close to a breakout year. Holiday has averaged 19.1 points, 9.0 assist and 3.4 rebounds per game as the focus of the Sixers' offense in Bynum's absence. Holiday and backcourt mates like Evan Turner and Jason Richardson will provide another test for Detroit's struggling guards.

Wednesday night's game tips off at 7 p.m. ET on Fox Sports Detroit.
