NBA Wednesday Night on The Hardwood: Detroit Pistons Vs. Sacramento Kings

NBA Wednesday Night on The Hardwood: Detroit Pistons Vs. Sacramento Kings

Rebounding Machines

It has been 45 seasons since a player averaged over 20 rebounds a game for a full season, but Detroit’s center Andre Drummond could come close to ending the streak. Through 7 games Andre Drummond is average 19.6 rebounds per game, 6 more than the next closest player. With Drummond’s amazing rebounding abilities the Pistons lead the NBA in offensive rebounds per game and rank second in total rebounds per game.

Another Long Drought in California

The Kings have gone 9 long years without a playoff appearance and though it is early it would seem as though the streak is poised to reach double digits. While the Kings are a strong offensive team ranking in the top 8 in both points and assists, they struggle on defense giving the third most points in the league and blocking the second fewest shots.  

Detroit Pistons vs. Sacramento Kings

The Pistons are not an offensive juggernaut, but their scoring woes seem to be more focused in Detroit than on the road. The Pistons have cracked the century mark three times this season, each being on the road – including twice already on this long road trip. The Kings are not very good at shutting down opponents and both teams are highly ranked in terms of offensive rebounding. With the over/under hovering right at 203, the over option should be more enticing for bettors. The line actually favours the Kings by 1.5, but Detroit is the better team right now and the Pistons swept the Kings last season – including a five point victory in Sacramento.
