The Pistons vs. The Pacers

The 11-14 #Pistons are in Indianapolis to play the second game of a back-to-back against the league leading 20-3 Pacers. The Pacers have reached the 20 win mark the fastest in their franchise history.

The good: Detroit has a better chance than most to take down the Pacers with their front line of Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe. The Pistons will have to go at the basket strong, they currently lead the league with points in the paint at 51.9.
The bad: Detroit is 1-o against Indiana this season and has lost 10 consecutive games to the Pacers on the road. The Pacers haven’t lost a game yet at home, where they are winning games by an average of 13 points.
The unknown: Can the Pistons minimize the damage that Paul George and Roy Hibbert cause most nights? Will Luis Scola do what he usually does when up against Detroit (score at will)? Can Josh Smith be the Josh Smith he was Sunday night against the Blazers?
Injury Report: None, but this is a second game of a back-to-back so Chauncey Billups will be sitting this one out.

Stat: Andre Drummond now ranks second in the NBA in field goal percentage with 61.5%
Fact: Andre Drummond currently ranks first in NBA history for the highest average of rebounds per game among players 20 or younger with 12.7.
Fact: Detroit is 2-4 on the second night of back-to-back games.
Fact: The Pistons’ last win at Indiana came on Jan. 29, 2008.

Tip off is at 7:00 pm and will be broadcast on Fox Sports Detroit . If you can’t catch the game on TV, catch it on the radio over at 97.1 The Ticket.

    J SMooooove you made me a believer this team can be scary good. And that loss last night taught them something about how to close.

    The 2 new Pistons had big games to upset Pacers giving them their first loss at Indy. another double/double for Moose
    Second great game for JSmoove. Maybe he has gotten his act together. Pistons outrebounded the Pacers big time. Good DDDDDDD wins games.

    also brandon jennings has a ridiculous handle he dribbles forever but still team only had I think 8 turnovers? That is jennings having the ball on a string. Also, when dre was out for foul trouble, it’s Jorts time. Singler with foul trouble, jerebko time. Charlie V gets to watch from the bench.

  5. I was so drained watching the fourth quarters of these last two games, I really didn’t think they would pull it off considering their track record. Nice win, this team can compete against anyone.

    Was anyone else cringing when Bynum was in there?

  6. edt says:

    bynum had a bad game but we need him to rest jennings, siva isn’t ready for the NBA and billups can’t play back 2 back. Can’t run jennings for 48 minutes so I’m glad he got in there and rested jennings.

    But yes I cringed too.

  7. Brady Smale says:

    Wow, totally surprised at the outcome.
