The 9-12 Pistons are back home to play Chauncey Billups and his 16-6 Denver Nuggets. Chauncey is doing wonders with the Nuggets, but one thing we hope he doesn’t change is their record in Detroit. The Nuggets haven’t won at The Palace of Auburn Hills since March 10, 1995.
That’s a record The Pistons would love to keep.
“Detroit won both meetings with Denver last season, perhaps in part because Anthony didn’t play in either. Anthony, leading the league with 29.8 points per game this season, has been held to an average of 15.4 points and 35.4 percent shooting in five career games at The Palace.” Via NBA.com
Nothing official yet on Tayshaun Prince returning to the floor. or how healthy Ben Gordon or Will Bynum are to play tonight but Rip anticipates his return on January 1st.
