The Los Angeles Lakers will try and remain unbeaten as they host the Detroit Pistons on Friday night.  The Lakers look like a better team than they were a year ago when they made the NBA Finals.  Los Angeles is still led by Kobe Bryant but now they have a healthy Andrew Bynum and a very deep bench led by Lamar Odom.  The Lakers split the season series with the Pistons a year ago. SBG Global reports that early NBA betting has the public taking Pistons on the Road.

Los Angeles easily could have swept the Pistons last season but Tayshaun Prince hit a late three pointer to give Detroit a home win.  Friday's game is the 197th meeting between the Pistons and Lakers all-time with Los Angeles holding a 128-68 advantage. The Lakers are 3-7 in their last 10 overall games against Detroit.  Los Angeles is 7-2 all-time against the Pistons at STAPLES Center. In 21 career games against the Pistons, Kobe Bryant is averaging 22.2 points per game.

The Pistons have a new look now that Allen Iverson is on the team. He is already putting his mark on Detroit having led them in scoring in a win at Sacramento when he poured in 30 points.
