Pistons, to end struggles when they meet Cavaliers

The Detroit Pistons and the Cleveland Cavaliers meet on November 5, 2022, at 7:00 AM (GMT+8), as Pistons host the Cavaliers. Coming into this game, the Cavaliers are hoping to extend their winning streak. In fact, they just came from an overtime win against Boston, so coming into this game, they have the confidence. Meanwhile, the Pistons are hoping to end their struggles this season, losing seven of their first nine matches. However, they cannot lose heart in this match if they want to advance this season.

The hosts just came from a loss against the Bucks before this match, giving them a standing of 2-7, which does not look optimistic at all. Their struggle this season all boils down to the fact that they lack players who can really lead their team. As for the visitors, they are a revelation this season as they are one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference. It is no longer surprising though as their record right now is 6-1, their best yet after their Lebron James era. Cleveland was finally able to add players in their roster that will definitely bring back their competitiveness in the league.

The Pistons just came from a back-to-back defeat against the Milwaukee Bucks before entering this match held at the home of the Bucks. Their first meeting ended with a score of 110-108, while their second match ended in a frustrating 116-91 loss. After two games, the Pistons will finally head back home for their meeting with the Celtics. During this season, many were expecting them to be a better team, but they have failed to meet those expectations. Their offense is inconsistent throughout their games, averaging 109.4 points per game, putting them the 25th in the league. Defense have always been their number one challenge as they are giving up 119.7 points per game, the 28th in the league.

Bojan Bogdanovic is the one who is consistent for the Pistons averaging 21.8 points per game and a 52% in the field. Cade Cunningham is also helping Bogdanovic in making magic for the Pistons.
