- Detroit Pistons
The Pistons’ season was effectively over when they lost 15 of their first 18 games and fell into an insurmountable hole. They also suffered a season-ending injury to star Cade Cunningham, so the rest of the season will be spent evaluating their pieces for the future.
Detroit had a six-game losing streak near the end of December, but it has since won three of its last six games.
The Pistons finished a five-game road trip with a 121-109 loss in San Antonio on Friday. They had previously completed a season sweep of the defending champions by winning a surprise game at Golden State.

- Philadelphia 76ers
After a disappointing double-overtime loss to Houston on Dec. 5, Philadelphia was 12-12, but it has won 11 of its last 14 games.
The 76ers won eight straight games in December, culminating with a Christmas Day victory over the New York Knicks.
They won three consecutive games against the Thunder, Pelicans, and Pacers before falling 126-112 to Chicago on Friday.
Embiid is questionable to play on Sunday, which is something bettors should keep in mind before placing a wager on this game.
