The Pistons finally found a way to pick up a win last night, defeating the Milwaukee Bucks 88-80 and ending their seven game losing streak. They'll have as good of a chance as any to win their second straight on Saturday night in front of their home crowd, as they take on the Western Conference's worst team, the New Orleans Hornets.

New Orleans, in an intense battle with Detroit and others for the most lottery balls, have lost 14 of their last 15 and five straight on the road.

After losing seven straight by almost 15 points per game, they had a big game in last night's win from No. 8 overall draft pick Brandon Knight who finished with a career high 26 points and seven assists (with no turnovers). Greg Monroe had his 12th double-double with 18 points and 11 rebounds. Monroe remains a strong candidate, if not the strongest, for the center reserve spot in this year's All-Star game.

Tonight's game tips at 7:30 p.m. eastern.
