NBA Odds: Wounded Warriors Visit Pistons

by: Staff Writer - posted on: 29-Nov-2018

Life could be worse for the Golden State Warriors (15-7 SU, 9-13 ATS). They're still the team to beat in the NBA, but their performance level is way down this year, thanks in large part to injures and palace intrigue. The Warriors hope to have at least one of their top stars back in action this Saturday when they visit the Detroit Pistons (11-7 SU, 10-8 ATS), tipping off at 7 PM ET.

PG Stephen Curry, the two-time league MVP and the cornerstone of Golden State's success, has been scrimmaging with the team after missing the last 10 games with a tender groin. There's a chance Curry will return for Thursday's road game against the Toronto Raptors; if not, Saturday should do it. Forward Draymond Green (toe) is expected to miss both games for the Dubs.

The Pistons are relatively healthy, and they're getting results in their first season under Dwane Casey – the reigning NBA Coach of the Year, who was let go by the Raptors after yet another early playoff exit. However, the Pistons have faced a soft schedule thus far, and center Andre Drummond hasn't played nearly as well as he did during his All-Star 2017-18 campaign.
