To say that the Detroit Pistons have not been doing very well recently would be a massive understatement. Even their recent victory over the Portland Trailblazers didn't help their anemic 4-13 record and they've still lost eight of their last ten games with the other victory coming against the similarly hapless Charlotte Bobcats.
Meanwhile, the Oklahoma City Thunder are still bitter about their dropout to the Dallas Mavericks in last season's playoffs and are doing well this season to make up for it. Kevin Durant has led the Thunder to a 13-3 record and though they did drop a game to the Washington Wizards -- that'd be the worst team in the NBA -- they're still one of the teams to beat in the NBA right now.
The bad news for the Pistons is that tonight's game will be at Oklahoma City, and the Pistons have been absolutely awful on the road so far this season with only a single win against Charlotte to show for themselves away from The Palace this season. They've only twice scored 90+ points on the road as well and against a powerful Thunder offense that could spell bad news for this reeling Detroit team.
