Mavericks-Pistons Preview

(AP) -- The Dallas Mavericks opened a back-to-back set against two of the NBA's worst teams by jumping out to an early lead and spreading their minutes around in an easy win.

The same could happen in Detroit, where the Mavericks face the Pistons on Wednesday night before returning home to face the defending NBA champions Saturday.

The Pistons (5-20) haven't won a home game since the second week of the season, dropping 10 straight since defeating Milwaukee on Nov. 7 to match a slide from Dec. 21-Jan. 31, 1994. They last topped that in a single season with a franchise-record 15 straight losses from Dec. 6, 1966-Jan. 31, 1967, but they strung 13 together from the end of '79-80 through the start of the following season.
