2012 NBA schedule: Pistons hoping to show consistency over the weekend

The 2-10 Detroit Pistons will try to get back on track when they square off against both Toronto and New York this weekend.

With two victories over their last four games, the Detroit Pistons will be looking to gain some much-needed consistency this weekend with a pair of Eastern Conference games on the schedule.

Now sitting at a dismal 2-10 on the season, the Pistons could only muster eight total points in the third quarter on Wednesday in a disheartening loss to Orlando. Nonetheless, head coach Lawrence Frank's squad should have a viable chance to bounce back with a 3-9 Toronto Raptors team in town for a Friday night game at The Palace of Auburn Hills. Currently the third-worst team in the Eastern Conference, the Raptors have only managed to win one game in seven opportunities on the road this season.

After taking Saturday off to rest their legs, the Pistons will then hit the road for an extremely dangerous game with the 8-2 New York Knicks on Sunday afternoon at Madison Square Garden. New York is one of two NBA teams with just two losses on the year, but will enter coming off a loss after dropping a tight 114-111 game to Dallas on Wednesday.

Weekend schedule

Friday - vs. Toronto Raptors - 7:30 p.m. ET

Sunday - at New York Knicks - 1 p.m. ET
