The four game road trip for the Detroit Pistons has gone about as well as expected considering their earlier road form. The Pistons got outscored by at least 20 points in all three games against Philadelphia, Milwaukee and New York so far including a 113-86 slopfest against the Carmelo Anthony led Knicks on Tuesday. Wednesday's game against the New Jersey Nets is probably the easiest of the four game bunch, but the fatigue of three games in three nights can't be understated.
New Jersey have been pretty good at home even as they've fallen to a 7-15 record. The Pistons have been absolutely terrible on the road all season with only a single win away from The Palace to their credit, a victory over the similarly languishing Charlotte Bobcats.
The Pistons won only two games the entire month of January while losing 17, but they'll look to start with a new chapter as February begins.
The game will be at Prudential Center at 7:30 PM ET.
