Tonight the Detroit Pistons visit the Dallas Mavericks in what should be a great early season matchup. The Mavs are 6-2, including 3-0 at home, while DET is 8-0 and looking to stay unbeaten.
These are two of my favorite teams in the league, so I'm geeked about this game. DET has clutch shooters and plays great defense, while the Mavs like to play up-tempo, and are trying to actually mix in some defense of their own this year.
Dallas is tough at home, they have already blown out the Spurs there this season, while Detroit is coming off an ugly game last night against Houston. While I do think that the "back-to-back" games thing is overrated and talked about way too much, it is a factor for the first month or so of the season. Prediction: Mavs hand the Pistons their first loss of the year.
