The loss for the Mavs snaps an 11-game winning streak against eastern conference opponents.
The Pistons have impressive wins at Cleveland and San Antonio during this win streak, both of which they came back from double-digit deficits. They are currently on their first 7-game winning streak since the 2009 season. They have won 5 of the 7 games on the road, and 6 of them by double digits.
Despite being 11 games under .500 at 12-23, the Pistons are just 3 games out of an eastern conference playoff spot. They will host a very tough Atlanta Hawks team on Friday night. Dallas fell to 26-11 on the season and will visit the Los Angeles Clippers Saturday afternoon.
