The Golden State Warriors are off to an incredibly slow start in the 2022-23 season, and have a back-to-back on Sunday against the Detroit Pistons after losing in overtime on Saturday. 

Warriors guard Stephen Curry wants to play in the back-to-back, which is a good sign for Golden State as it looks to get back on track. 

The Pistons have the worst net rating in the NBA this season, and they are just 1-5 despite many expecting them to take a step. 

Is this a “get right” spot for Golden State, or will the Pistons hang around at home?

Warriors vs. Pistons Prediction and Pick

These are two of the best OVER teams in the NBA, with both teams going 5-1 on OVERs through their first six games. 

Both teams do it in different ways, as the Pistons have the worst defensive rating in the NBA, while the Warriors play at a frenetic pace, the second fastest in the NBA. 

Golden State has combined for 230 or more points in all six of its games this season, while the Pistons have done it in four of six matchups. 

Can you guess where I’m leaning here? 

Neither team is in the top half of the NBA in offensive rating, but they both play fast and are in the bottom 10 in defense. On the second night of a back-to-back, I’d expect some tired legs on Golden State’s side, which should help the Pistons’ offense.
