Pistons clash with Wizards

December 22, 2012 18:17:44 UK

The Detroit Pistons make the trip to the Verizon Center in Washington DC on Saturday after defeating the Wizards 100-68 at The Palace of Auburn Hills on Friday evening.

LeBron James of the Miami Heat faces a busy schedule.

Greg Monroe had 15 points and nine rebounds and Andre Drummond came off the bench to record a double-double as the Pistons opened up a 19 point half-time lead and cruised to the 32 point victory to snap their six-game losing streak.

Ironically in beating the Wizards, the Pistons made it six defeats in a row for the Wizards who start a three-game home stand with the visit of their fellow strugglers.

Atop the Southeast Division the Miami Heat now also lead the Eastern Conference by a half a game over the New York Knicks after the Knickerbockers came up short against the Chicago Bulls on Friday.

The Heat, who have a ridiculous schedule through the end of the year playing six games in 10 days, host the Utah Jazz before matching up with the Oklahoma City Thunder on Christmas Day.

It’s then out on the road for LeBron James and company who first travel to Charlotte before moving on to Detroit, Milwaukee and Orlando.

Atlanta needs to snap their two-game losing streak and plays Chicago at the Philips Arena. This after they were surprised 99-80, by the 76ers at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, on Friday evening.

Josh Smith had a team-high 17 points and 8-of-16 shooting, but the four remaining Atlanta starters, Al Horford, Jeff Teague, DeShawn

Stevenson and Kyle Korver, were a poor 8-of-25 combined to prevent any chance of success.

Chicago are 7501.00 to win the NBA Championship, with the Miami Heat 1.75.
