As for the Pistons, they are the complete opposite of their opponents, as they are now in a five-game losing skid. They failed to win consecutive matches, which is why they are one of the teams sure of being eliminated.

In fact, ever since 2023 started, the Bucks have already won 30 games of their 39 matches this year. On their last match, they had a three-point advantage at the half, but were outscored in the second half. Despite their misfortunes, they are still the best in the East. They are at the eighth in offense with 116.7 points per game, and ninth in defense, allowing 112.4 points per game.

Giannis Antetokounmpo continues to lead the Bucks, having 31.1 points per game, along with 11.7 rebounds per game. However, he is listed as probable in this match, due to a knee problem.
