NBA schedule: Pistons meet Grizzlies, Mavericks this weekend

Russ Isabella-US PRESSWIRE

The Detroit Pistons have won three of their last four games, but they face tough road tests against the Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks on Friday and Saturday.

The Detroit Pistons started the season winless in their first eight games, but since then they have produced a very respectable 5-3 record to push their overall line to 5-11. This weekend they hit the road for two tough test against Western Conference opponents, so will be interesting to see how Greg Monroe, Brandon Knight and company hold up against tough teams.

The Memphis Grizzlies (11-2) the surprise team in the NBA and they are terrific at home (7-1), so the Pistons will have their work cut out for them on Friday night. In the second game of a back-to-back, they will meet up against the Mavericks at the American Airlines Center.

The Mavs will be well-rested for the matchup because they have off on Thursday and Friday, and Detroit has struggled mightily on the road. The Pistons are just 1-8 on the road, so it will be very interesting to see if their recent surge will continue when the move away from the friendly confines of The Palace of Auburn Hills.
