The 22-30 #Pistons will host the 23-30 Charlotte Bobcats at the Palace of Auburn Hills. Detroit is within a half-game of the Bobcats for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference when they take the court on Tuesday night in their first game of a home-and-home with the Bobcats.
The good: Andre Drummond’s spectacular performance in Friday night’s Rising Star game. Drummond is playing some very good basketball of late scoring in double figures in a career-high eight straight games, averaging 15.8 points and 15.0 rebounds while shooting 67.1 percent from the field.
The bad: Despite the Pistons play of late their loss to the Cavaliers was a little disheartening.
The unknown: Will the Pistons make a move before the trade deadline? Some say that Monroe and Stuckey deals seem very plausible.
Injuries: Pistons: Josh Harrellson (knee) out.
Bobcats: Brendan Haywood and Jeffery Taylor out.
Stat: Detroit has won eight of the last 10 games against Charlotte.
Stat: Brandon Jennings led the Pistons with 26 points in the loss on 12/20. Kemba Walker scored 34 points to lead the Bobcats to the 116-106 win.
Tip off is at 7:30 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.
