It’s been nearly a month since the Detroit Pistons won away from home.
If they can duplicate their recent performances against the Minnesota Timberwolves, that drought could end Friday night.
Detroit will attempt to snap its seven-game road skid by earning its sixth consecutive win at the Target Center.
Already averaging an NBA-worst 87.5 points on the road, the Pistons’ scoring has proved even more meager during their losing streak. Detroit is averaging 81.9 and had its second-worst shooting performance of the season (37.5 percent) during Wednesday night’s 93-74 loss at New Orleans.
“We couldn’t score. Our guys were trying hard,” said coach John Kuester, whose team has lost six of seven overall. “When the ball is not going in the hole, it puts you in a bind and you have to put so much pressure on your defense.”
