The 14-17 #Pistons are in Washington to play the second game of a back-to-back against the 12-14 Wizards. The Pistons should have something to prove when they take the court after their disappointing loss against the Magic on Friday night.
The good: The Pistons have won the last seven games against the Wizards.
The bad: Detroit doesn’t do well on second games of back-to-backs. The last time these two teams met Trevor Ariza put up 28 points for the Wizards.
The unknown: Can Greg Monroe, and Josh Smith bounce back from their sub-par games in Orlando and help the Pistons on the offensive end against the Wizards?
Injuries: Rodney Stuckey looks like he re-aggravated his shoulder injury, but there is no word yet on whether he’ll be healthy enough to play Saturday night.
Fact: Greg Monroe scored 24 points and grabbed 16 rebounds in the home opener becoming the first Piston with double-double in a home opener since 2007.
Stat: Andre Drummond now ranks second in the NBA in field goal percentage with 61.3%.
Stat: Chauncey Billups ranks second all-time in Detroit Pistons history for most 3-point field goals made, trailing only Joe Dumars.
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.
