Bucks-Pistons Preview

(AP) -- Thanks in part to a renewed focus on defense, the Milwaukee Bucks are back on track during their best start in nine years.

Looking to stymie offensively challenged Detroit for the second time in four days, the surprising Bucks can match a season high with a third straight win Friday night, while the last-place Pistons will try to avoid their longest losing streak in 20 months.

Milwaukee (9-7) allowed an average of 116.5 points on 50.1 percent shooting - 43.4 from 3-point range - during a recent four-game stretch that included back-to-back losses against Toronto and Washington.
