With the Pistons’ postseason hopes dangling by a thread, every victory is vital. And on Saturday, they’ll take on the Knicks at 5 p.m. ET at Madison Square Garden, hoping to gain ground in the Eastern Conference standings.
While Detroit has won five of its past six decisions, it enters play without star forward Blake Griffin, who’s out with a bruised ankle. The Pistons will need everyone to step up to snatch a much-needed win. Detroit opened as a 3.5-point favorite and the Over-Under, or total number of points Vegas thinks will be scored, is 211.
