Detroit Pistons vs Charlotte Hornets (By: Miyagi)
The Pistons (8th) will know Miami's (9th) result but still, this is a very important game for them and an extremely important game for the Hornets (10th) as they race for a playoff spot in the East. Detroit is a tight team that relly's a lot on its defense (rank 7th best in the league in points allowed per game) rather than its offense (ranks 24th in the league in points scored per game) and given the importance of this game, it seems quite possible that they will try to control the pace and force a lower tempo which works better for them.
Both teams have struggled offensively, at least in their last 5 games, as they both averaged just about 51 points in the first half. They scored a combined total of 100 points in their first meeting of the season in Detroit but this time they have to deal with extra pressure, which usually translates to lower scores. All things considered, I think this line of 110 points is not just high but huge and unless this will be one of those games that both teams can't miss a shot, they will cover with ease.
