L.A. Lakers vs. Detroit Pistons: Preview, Analysis and Predictions

February 2nd, 2013 by Jesse Dorsey Leave a reply »
The Los Angeles Lakers continue on their quest to get back into playoff contention as they take on the Detroit Pistons, who might be thinking a bit about the playoffs themselves.

Of course, both teams have one thing in common: if they want to make the playoffs, they've got to win a lot of games down the stretch. That means both teams have something to fight for in this one.

The Lakers have won four of their last five games—as Kobe Bryant has turned into the team's distributor—with wins over the Utah Jazz, Oklahoma City Thunder, New Orleans Hornets and Minnesota Timberwolves.

Los Angeles also broke their road losing streak after beating Minnesota. They had lost eight in a row before that win, and are 6-16 on the road overall.

Detroit on the other hand have won just two of their past six games, and are waiting to find out whether or not they'll be with recently acquired Jose Calderon in this game depending on Visa issues.
