What you need to know about the Pistons

Meanwhile, the Pistons are coming off arguably their best win of the season. They strolled past the Oklahoma City Thunder 120-104 on Sunday despite being 12.5-point underdogs. Pistons second-year center Jalen Duren had 22 points, 21 rebounds and six assists in the victory, and he’s had a double-double in three of his last four games.

After starting the season 3-36, the Pistons have managed three wins over their last seven games, and they should benefit from the return of Cade Cunningham on Wednesday. The former No. 1 overall pick missed Sunday’s victory because of knee soreness, but he’s listed as probable for Wednesday’s outing and is averaging 22.8 points and 7.4 assists this season. However, Detroit will be without big man Isaiah Stewart (ankle). See which team to pick here.
