Last Wednesday, the Mastodons couldn't handle the Golden Grizzlies and fell 71-63.

Keep an eye on the arc in Saturday's game: PFW have made nailing deep shots look easy this year this season, having averaged 9.2 threes per game. It's a different story for Detroit, though, as they've been averaging only 5.8 threes per game. Given PFW's sizable advantage in that area, the Titans will need to find a way to close that gap.
