Let’s check the latest NBA odds, stats, injury report and NBA lines for Pistons vs 76ers. We’ve plenty of NBA betting odds for you to consider.
Detroit Seeking Cleaner Effort
The Pistons hurt themselves with a season-high 23 turnovers in the loss at Detroit. That eclipsed their previous season high of 22 giveaways, which was set in a Dec. 21 loss to the Sixers.
Although his math might’ve been off, head coach Dwane Casey understood the issue.
“That’s a team playing for a championship and we shot ourselves in the foot,” Casey said Sunday. “We had 22 turnovers — the same number we had in the last game against them. We can’t give them points like that.”
Detroit did have some bright spots Sunday. Killian Hayes scored a season-high 26 points while adding in six assists and three steals. He is averaging 8.7 assists and 3.0 steals over his last three games and is 19-for-31 from the floor over his last two.
Embiid Questionable to Return on Tuesday
The Sixers have won 12 of their last 15 and are 2-1 since superstar center Joel Embiid was sidelined with a foot issue. The reigning NBA scoring champ is officially listed as questionable for Tuesday, so keep an eye on his status as you consider a bet online.
Fortunately for Philadelphia, James Harden is playing at a high level. He posted his second triple-double of the season with 20 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists in Sunday’s 123-111 win over the Pistons, conjuring up quite the comparison from head coach Doc Rivers.
“I hate to use this example, but when he’s playing like this, it’s like having a scoring Magic Johnson on the floor,” Rivers told reporters. “When he runs our team with this kind of pace and he scores and gets assists, we’re really good.”
Motrezl Harrell has filled in for Embiid at center, and he’s filled in very well while meshing with Harden. The veteran big man is averaging 18.7 points on 75 percent shooting in the last three games, and he has 30 points on 13-for-18 shooting in just 33 minutes against the Pistons this season.
