The Pistons will get some time off this week with only one game before Friday.

After hosting the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday, the Detroit Pistons will stay home this week, but will play just once before Friday.

The Pistons will have Monday off before they host the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday. It will be the second and final regular season meeting between the two teams. The Kings won the first game, 105-103 in November. While Sacramento won the first contest at home, they will have a much tougher task going on the road.

The Kings have been one of the worst road teams in the NBA this season and will enter Tuesday's game with a 1-12 road record. Tuesday's game is scheduled to tipoff at 7:30 p.m. ET and will be televised on Fox Sports Detroit. It will be Detroit's third straight home game as part of a five-game home stand.

After playing on Tuesday, the Kings will have Wednesday and Thursday off before continuing the home stand against Atlanta on Friday.
