Nuggets vs. Pistons: Denver still on the road, seeking .500 record

The Denver Nuggets' road trip swings through Detroit, where the Nuggets haven't had much success lately.


Another game day, another road game for the Denver Nuggets. Denver -- in the midst of a five-game road trip -- is in Detroit to play the Pistons Tuesday night, looking to bounce back from a 112-106 loss to the New York Nicks on Sunday.

Denver only has a win over the Indiana Pacers to show since the road trip started with a loss to the Atlanta Hawks last Wednesday. The five-game trip wraps up on Wednesday at the Minnesota Timberwolves, before the Nuggets return home to play the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday -- after which they hit the road yet again for a game at Sacramento this weekend. Denver (10-11) has only had back-to-back home games once all season.

Struggling Detroit (7-16) would seem to be a nice spot for the Nuggets to get a win, but Denver has lost six of seven games at Auburn Hills. Overall, the Nuggets have lost five of their last six road games.

The Nuggets and Pistons tip off at 5:30 p.m. MT from the Palace at Auburn Hills. The game is available locally on Altitude.
