Pistons Aiming for California Sweep vs Lakers

The Detroit Pistons have won all three games on their current California road trip and can make it four straight in the Golden State when they visit the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday.

Xbet opened the Pistons as 4-point road favorites with a total of 208.

Shark Bites
  • The Pistons are 4-12 SU in their last 16 games against the Lakers.
  • The Pistons are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games.
  • The Lakers are 4-1 ATS in their last five games against teams with winning records.

On the heels of big wins over the L.A. Clippers and Golden State Warriors, Detroit is enjoying a strong start to the campaign. A big reason is their success from downtown, as the Pistons knocked down 12 three-pointers while connecting on all 17 free-throw attempts in their recent triumph over the reigning champion Warriors.

It’s the opposite story for the Lakers right now. L.A. set a season-low for points in Sunday’s 96-81 road loss to the Utah Jazz that saw rookie point guard Lonzo Ball struggle again. Ball is averaging 10 points, 7.7 assists and 7.5 rebounds but is an abysmal 10-of-41 shooting over the past four games. He’s shooting 31.1 percent from the field on the year and has scored in single digits in five of six contests.

The Lakers have long dominated this series, but the Pistons have turned the tables on them of late. Detroit has won the last three meetings between the squads after losing 12 of 13 before that.
