Game notes: The Pistons continue their homestand with a meeting with Los Angeles Lakers. Detroit is 2-1 so far on this home stretch at Little Caesars Arena, most recently losing to the Golden State Warriors, 105-102. Frank Jackson had 27 and narrowly missed a 3-pointer that would have sent the game to overtime. Cade Cunningham and Jerami Grant added 19 points apiece.
The Lakers are battered, with LeBron James (abdomen) and Anthony Davis (thigh) both listed as day-to-day. Davis is expected to play, but James could sit out after returning from injury in Wednesday’s loss to Boston. The Lakers, playing for the most part without James, have lost three in a row and four of five — and none of their losses has been particularly close.
In a week, the teams will meet again in Los Angeles, part of a five-game road stretch for Detroit. The final game in the Pistons’ current homestand is Tuesday against the Miami Heat. The Lakers head further east after Sunday, facing the New York Knicks on Tuesday.
