The Pistons are coming off a 23-point loss to the Houston Rockets after snapping their 28-game losing streak on December 30.

Jazz Need Momentum Before Road Trip

After facing the 3-30 Pistons the Jazz will travel east to face the Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers, and Milwaukee Bucks before returning home to face the Denver Nuggets next Wednesday.

Each of those four opponents has a top-six record in the NBA, led by the Celtics at 26-7.

The Jazz are tied for the best record in the NBA over their last six games at 5-1.

Utah has the second-best defensive rating in the league during the stretch at 109.3, while owning the sixth-best offensive rating at 119.3.

Pistons On Tough Four-Game Road Swing

The Pistons will face the Jazz hoping to snap a 15-game road losing streak.

Detroit’s first win of the season came in Charlotte on October 27, but haven’t won on the road since.

The Pistons nearly ended their road woes by taking the Celtics to overtime in Boston on December 28 but fell 128-122 in extra time.

Detroit snapped a six-game losing streak in Utah last season with a 126-116 victory at the Delta Center.
