On Monday night, the Detroit Pistons will be going up against the Chicago Bulls, who are 1-1 at home this season.
Chicago was able to win three out of their four games against the Pistons during the 2013-14 season. Their biggest win came early on in the season when they beat Detroit 99-79 on the road, but the Pistons did have a 17-point win of their own in Chicago later in the season.
Pistons forward Josh Smith has faced the Bulls 33 times and has averaged 14.5 points and 8.7 boards. Center Andre Drummond has averaged 10.6 points and 11.6 rebounds against them in eight games, while Greg Monroe has scored 11.3 points per game while grabbing 8.1 rebounds per game against them.
The Bulls had their fourth-game winning streak snapped on Saturday when they were defeated 106-101 by the Boston Celtics. They lost that game despite making eight of their 18 three-pointers and only turning the ball over eight times. They just happened to face a team that made their shots, as the Celtics ended up shooting 52 percent in that game.
Through seven games, the Bulls have one of the better scoring teams in the league by averaging 104.3 points per game. Shooting guard Jimmy Butler has been great for them by scoring 19.6 points per game and grabbing 6.2 rebounds per game. Offseason acquisition Pau Gasol has averaged 18.6 points, 10.6 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game.
