Milwaukee Bucks vs Detroit Pistons (By: Miyagi)
Pistons and Sixers are the main two teams from the East that have struggled to limit the damage from small guys at guard positions. Pistons, in particular, have been crushed with consistency by opposing PGs and that has a lot to do with Jackson's poor (terrible to be honest) defense, lack of commitment and inability to stick with his man in traffic/ off screens and of course the fact that the Pistons don't use switching defense, unlike other teams.
In their last 2 games, they faced two point-guards that do not contribute a lot in scoring and barely average 10 points per game; DJ Augustin (Magic) scored 26 points and Collison (Pacers) scored 19 points against the Pistons.
Bledsoe has a great tradition and always enjoys his games against the Pistons. In their last 5 meetings (as a Bucks player) he averages 20 points per game, while in 3 games prior to that (as a Suns player) he averaged 21 points against them.
Bledsoe scored 27 points in their first game of this season's series in Milwaukee and 17 points in their game in Detroit while he had at least 16 attempts in each game.
Bledsoe had 8 or fewer attempts in each of his last 3 games which by itself is strange since he averages 12 attempts per game so far this season. Hill's arrival did not change the order of things or limited his playing time, it was rather the fact that the most recent games did not favor him.
Things did not go as planned with Bledsoe last time but with a decent line at 15 points, some great odds and the Pistons here, this is a no-brainer.
