The 2-3 Pistons are in Portland for the first game of their four game Western trip to take on the 4-2 Trail Blazers. The Pistons would love to start the trip on a good note, but don’t necessarily play well in Portland, losing five straight there.
- The good: Greg Monroe and his hot game along with the great start by Rodney Stuckey.
- The bad: The Blazers are winners of five of their last six games against Detroit. Watch out for LaMarcus Aldridge, Damian Lillard and Wesley Matthews. The trio need to be contained for Detroit to have a chance.
- The unknown: Can Detroit settle down on the defensive end and stop giving up so many points? Detroit has given up an average of 109 in their last two games. Will Andre Drummond stay out of foul trouble so he can stay on the floor?
Tip off is at 10:00 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.
