The Warriors are 16-12 SU on the road this season, including a 7-2 mark when taking on Eastern Conference opponents, which is important to consider when making your NBA predictions.

The Pistons have four of five probable starters averaging in double figures, with point guard Brandon Jennings leading the way at 17.4 points a contest.
