The poor Detroit Pistons just can't get a break. They've already played a month where they've only gotten 12 days off, and the tired 4-17 team keep on trucking with a back to back to back followed by a back to back this following week.
The weekday fixtures of the group are all bunched together Monday through Wednesday. Monday brings Detroit out to Milwaukee to face the Bucks at 6 PM ET. The Bucks aren't doing particularly well at the moment at 8-11, but did get a signature win over the Los Angeles Lakers recently.
Tuesday the Pistons fly out to New York to face the Knicks. New York are supposed to be a lot better than they are right now, but are only 7-13 as the team of stars haven't been able to gel together and now might even start to get into re-building mode as their playoff berth from last year looks to be more of a fluke than anything.
The cruel stretch of three road games in three days will fortunately not have the Pistons traveling very far in the end as they go down to meet the New Jersey Nets on Wednesday at 5:30 PM. The weekend brings another back to back against the Bucks and New Orleans Hornets, both at home. The Pistons are going to have to concentrate on not being the worst road team in the NBA for three straight games before they can even think about that, though.
