The 0-2 #Pistons will take the court for the first time this season at the Palace of Auburn Hills against 0-1 Brooklyn Nets. With Detroit’s disappointing start to the season, this is a must needed win for Pistons.
The good: Greg Monroe is back and the Pistons and will be coming off the bench for Detroit. Despite the Pistons start, we’ve seen good things from reserves D.J. Augustin and Caron Butler. Brook Lopez will not play on Saturday night.
The bad: The abysmal second half play of the Pistons starters in Thursday’s loss against the Timberwolves.
The unknown: What kind of minutes is Brandon Jennings going to get? Will he step up or step aside to make way for D.J. Augustin?
Pistons:: Jodie Meeks and Cartier Martin are out.
Nets:: Brooke Lopez is out.
