Pistons hanging on as they visit Nuggets

The pack is closing in on the Detroit Pistons, and they are feeling the heat.

The Pistons are trying to hold onto a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, but they have lost three of their past four games, all on the road. They came up empty over the weekend against Portland and Golden State, two of the Western Conference's top teams.

They will try to salvage the final game of the trip on Tuesday when they play Denver, which is battling the Warriors for the top seed in the West.
