The Milwaukee Bucks head to Michigan to take on the Pistons after a tough loss against the Washington Wizards on Monday night.

The Milwaukee Bucks are so up and down. One day they’re thrashing the Washington Wizards, and then they’re giving up a huge lead to the same team the very next game! Such is life as a young team missing a key player.

The Bucks will have a shot to right the ship and grab another win over a division rival when they head to Auburn Hills on Wednesday to take on the Pistons. Detroit has been a team in flux for a while, even with the return of Reggie Jackson.

The Pistons have a lot of problems, not all of them strictly basketball-related. Jackson froze himself out of a game after coming back and refused to take shots. That’s never a fantastic sign from a player.

That is fantastic for the Bucks, though. Turmoil means it should be somewhat easier to beat Detroit, unless they band together and work through it against Milwaukee. Hopefully for the Bucks, that’s not how it happens on Wednesday!

To find out how it could happen either way, we’ll look at some major keys to victory for both teams involved in the game. After that we will scope out a player to watch on the Pistons side of things, then finally make predictions on how the game will go!
