The Knicks look for their third victory over the Pistons this season as the two Eastern Conference foes hook up at Madison Square Garden on Monday night.

The Knicks returned home from their 3-1 road trip to rout the Nets, 105-93, on Saturday afternoon. The Knicks limited Brooklyn to 36 second-half points, while Donte DiVincenzo led the Knicks with 31 points.

The Pistons put together a rare two-game winning streak earlier this month by beating the Hornets and Raptors at home.

However, Detroit has reverted to its losing ways by dropping five consecutive games, capped off by a 27-point loss at Boston on Friday.
