It was ugly when these two played earlier in the season. Dallas had one of the those games where they just didn't show up, and even though the final score showed just a ten point loss, it wasn't that close. Dallas was blown out.
The good news, excluding Golden State, Dallas has played really well this season when facing a team they lost to in the previous meeting (excluding GSW, 5-0 with an average margin of victory of 14 points)
The Pistons are riding high right now. They just finished a five game road trip against the Western Conference and finished 5-0. They lost their last two games prior to leaving for the trip. Detroit actually has a better road record than home record so far this season.
