Who do you have winning tonight’s game between the Pistons and the Raptors?


After a thrilling double-overtime triumph, the Detroit Pistons will travel to take on the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.

In tonight’s game, the Pistons will face a struggling Raptors team that blew a 13-point fourth-quarter lead and fell to the visiting Utah Jazz 122-116 on Friday.

On Friday, the Pistons beat the San Antonio Spurs 138-131. Bojan Bogdanovic had 32 points overall, 10 of which came in the two overtime periods, while Jalen Duren, a rookie, scored 30 points, a career high.

The Pistons won for the first time in three games on Friday, and Duren had a huge part in it by grabbing 17 rebounds (two shy of his career high).

When looking at Duren’s last 10 games, he has averaging 13.4 points, 10.2 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks per contest.

Having taken a 13-point lead into the final quarter, the Raptors were able to extend that lead to 20 points with 5:17 to play against the Jazz.

How about James Wiseman for Sunday’s match?

According to Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press, Wiseman is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Raptors because of his expected trade.

Despite the fact that Gary Payton failed his (abdominal) physical, the Warriors are still considering trading for Wiseman, and he is currently waiting for their decision. Once Golden State makes a decision, more details on Wiseman’s future should become accessible.
