Pistons vs. Knicks: Detroit travels to face Knicks on Sunday afternoon

The Pistons will look to keep up their improved play when they visit the Knicks.


After losing eight straight to start the season, the Detroit Pistons have won three of their last five and look to keep the momentum going Sunday as they head to Madison Square Garden to play the New York Knicks.

Sunday will mark the first matchup between these two teams this season.

Detroit is coming off a 91-90 win over the Toronto Raptors in which Brandon Knight scored a layup with under 10 seconds remaining to take the lead and, eventually, the game. Knight is one of three Pistons averaging in double figures through 13 games this season, with 11 points per game, adding 6.2 assists as well. Greg Monroe leads the club with 17.2 points per game and 9.8 rebounds per game.

The Knicks, coming off two straight losses in which they gave up 114 and 131 points, look to rebound against a Pistons team that averages only 92.2 points per contest. The Knicks are 8-3 and sit near the top of the Eastern Conference standings.

Time: 1:00 p.m. ET, Sunday, Nov. 25
