Who’s Playing

Phoenix @ Detroit

Current Records: Phoenix 28-26; Detroit 14-39

What to Know

The Detroit Pistons haven’t won a contest against the Phoenix Suns since Jan. 8 of 2021, but they’ll be looking to end the drought Saturday. They will face off at 7 p.m. ET Feb. 4 at Little Caesars Arena without much rest after finishing up games yesterday. Detroit is hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 119.91 points per matchup.

The Pistons didn’t have too much breathing room in their game with the Charlotte Hornets on Friday, but they still walked away with a 118-112 victory. Detroit’s shooting guard Jaden Ivey was one of the most active players for the team, picking up 24 points and seven assists.

Meanwhile, while not quite a landslide, the game between Phoenix and the Boston Celtics on Friday was still a pretty decisive one as the Suns wrapped it up with a 106-94 win on the road. Small forward Mikal Bridges (25 points) was the top scorer for Phoenix.

Detroit is expected to lose this next one by 4.5. They are currently two-for-two against the spread in their most recent games, however, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

In the teams’ previous meeting last November, Detroit was in the race but had to settle for second with a 108-102 finish. Maybe they will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the matchup and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
