The 3-13 Pistons are at the Palace again for a back-to-back game against the 9-6 Trail Blazers. Portland looks to make it seven consecutive wins against the Pistons when they close their six-game in Detroit.
- The good: More time on the floor for Brandon Knight, who ran the show for Detroit in a losing effort against the Grizzlies.
- The bad: The Pistons! They are not the league’s lowest-scoring team with 84.8 points per game, averaging only 40.8 in the first half.
- Who to watch: LaMarcus Aldridge, who put up a season high 33 points and a career best 23 boards the other night. The last time Portland faced Detroit, Aldridge put up 36 points on them.
- The unknown: Who will the Pistons we with or without in tonight’s contest? It’s unclear right now whether Stuckey or Bynum will be a go. And at this point I’m going to stop mentioning Charlie V till I see him on court.
Tip off is at 7:30 pm and will be broadcast on Fox Sports. If you can’t catch the game on TV, catch it on the radio over at 97.1 the Ticket.
