The Toronto Raptors had little trouble with the Detroit Pistons last season. Their road struggles in 2010-11 may play a major part in keeping that from happening again.
The Raptors attempt to end a four-game losing streak by continuing their success against the struggling Pistons on Saturday night.
Toronto (8-15) dominated the Pistons (7-17) in sweeping all four meetings last season by an average of 15.5 points, matching its win total from the previous 18 matchups. The Raptors outscored Detroit by an average of 22.0 points in their two visits to The Palace of Auburn Hills.
They may have trouble matching that success this season, considering they are 2-9 as the visitor while giving up an average of 108.9 points.
