The Pistons will host the 8-24 Sacramento Kings tonight at The Palace. The Pistons have won 5 of the last 8 against the Kings and are on their longest winning streak of the season (5).
The Pistons will be without Rip Hamilton and possibly Rasheed Wallace and Antonio McDyess as they try to extend their streak to six games.
Detroit is holding its opponents to 40.1 shooting and 83.8 points during its five game winning streak. That won’t be easy with Kevin Martin in the lineup for The Kings. Sacramento was without Martin the last time these two teams faced each other.
Meanwhile, the Pistons assign Alex Acker and Walter Sharpe to the D League. Surprising move with Rip out of the lineup right now.
Tip off is at 8:00 P.M. and will be locally broadcast on FSN. If you can’t watch the broadcast, tune into 1130 AM The Fan where you can catch our friend Matt Dery with the Pre-Game starting at 7:0. Can’t do either, follow the game on NBA.com.

I will be enjoying the game with The Winners of the I’m Sheed contest in The Pistons.com Suite. Good Times!
