Detroit Pistons vs Phoenix Suns Prediction & Match Preview – December 2nd, 2021 | NBA Season 2021-22
The slumping Detroit Pistons will face the surging Phoenix Suns on Thursday in an NBA 2021-22 matchup at Footprint Center in Phoenix.
The matchup between the Pistons and Suns will be a battle between one of the NBA’s worst and best teams. Detroit, which has strung together another significant losing streak, will visit the hottest team in the league that just routed the mighty Golden State Warriors.
Dwane Casey’s team was outscored in nearly every possible statistical category in its loss to the struggling Portland Trail Blazers. One of those was the number of turnovers (19) and the inability to facilitate easy baskets for their teammates. They will have to improve significantly against the red-hot Phoenix Suns.
The reigning Western Conference champions are on an impressive run this season. They are clearly the best team in the NBA right now, with a perfect month of November. The Phoenix Suns are riding a streak of 17 consecutive wins, and have looked much better than they did last season.
However, Devin Booker’s left hamstring injury could dent the Suns’ hopes of extending their winning streak. However, this is a team that just beat the Warriors without their leading scorer for the entire second half.
Their second-ranked defense should ensure they are tough to beat, especially against the slumping Detroit Pistons.

Pistons vs Suns Prediction
On paper, this has to be one of the most lopsided games of the season. The Detroit Pistons’ plethora of weaknesses are also some of the Phoenix Suns’ strengths. If the Suns roll up their sleeves to work, it could be just a formality before adding another W to their record.
