PREVIEW: THUNDER-PISTONS

The Thunder are back on the road tonight and will play the Detroit Pistons at 6 PM CT. The Pistons are the 4th seed in the Eastern Conference and has been better than expected so this will not be an easy game for the Thunder.

The key to beat the Pistons tonight will be to somewhat shut down Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond which means that Steven and Jerami has to play great defensive games, which they definitely are capable of as both are good/great defenders. I believe that Steven Adams needs to have a great game overall for the Thunder to win. He needs to be be aggressive on the boards and to prevent Drummond from getting a lot of offensive rebounds by either boxing him out and let Russ get the board, or try to get the board himself. I believe that Steven is the X-factor for the Thunder tonight.

My Prediction

Thunder: 108, Pistons: 110
