(AP) — After a horrendous start, the Detroit Pistons are playing their best basketball of the season.

The Sacramento Kings also looked like they were starting to turn things around, but the beginning of a tough road stretch has returned them to their losing ways.

Coming off an impressive win away from home, Detroit looks to continue its recent success Friday night when it meets a Sacramento team playing its third road game in four nights.

The Pistons began their first season 4-20 under coach Lawrence Frank. Detroit, though, matched its win total over that span with four consecutive victories Feb. 3-10.

A two-game skid followed that run, but the Pistons bounced back with a 98-88 win in Boston on Wednesday night as Frank tinkered with his lineup.
