Both the Pistons and the Knicks are going to have had a few days off for this game, and it is going to be an odd afternoon clash at 3:00 p.m. in Motown. The Pistons have 10 of their 14 wins this year here at the Palace at Auburn Hills, but they really aren’t in good form there right now, having gotten beaten at home by both the Charlotte Bobcats and Utah Jazz at home in the last two weeks. It was clear who the better of these two teams were when these clubs met back in November, as the Knicks plastered Detroit by 21 at Madison Square Garden. Granted, we don’t think that New York is going to knock down 17 three-point shots in this one, but we do really see how well this team has played in games that F Carmelo Anthony played this year. It’s a totally different team with Melo on the court, and with a remarkable 17-12 ATS record in 29 games that he has played, we think that we have no choice but to lay the lumber on the road with the boys from the Big Apple even though this is sure to be a relatively square play when push comes to shove.

Knicks @ Pistons Pick: New York Knicks -5.5
Knicks @ Pistons Final Score Prediction: Knicks 105 – Pistons 96
