The New York Knicks (9-11) are coming into tonight off the back of a two-game losing skid. Their opponents, the Detroit Pistons (5-17) have had a rough season thus far, and are also on a two-game losing skid heading into tonight's clash.
In their past five games, the Knicks have beaten just one team: the Oklahoma City Thunder. Their season in general has proven to be deeply disappointing as they've consistently failed to build any major momentum. As poor as their form has been, it pales in comparison to the Pistons' losing ways this season.

Knicks vs. Pistons Prediction
Even with the Knicks' unimpressive season thus far, it's hard to bet against them considering they've already beaten the Pistons twice this season. The Detroit outfit have gone 2-9 in their last 11 outings and are coming into tonight with several of their key star players potentially sidelined due to injury.
The Knicks, meanwhile, have just one potentially injured player and have, despite their hit-and-miss results lately, performed to a far higher level on the court this season. Unless the Pistons pull off a miracle, this is the Knicks' game to win as they look to get back on track before the end of the month.
