The 8-19 Pistons are hosting the 16-10 New Orleans Hornets Sunday evening at The Palace of Auburn Hills.
The big question is, will Detroit bounce back from their abysmal performance against the Clippers?
Charlie Villanueva: “This one hits home, we know what was at stake. We know we laid an egg. We embarrassed ourselves out there. We all know that.”
The last time the Pistons met the Hornets it did not go well, when David West and Marco Belinelli combined for 47 points and Chris Paul had 14 assists as the Hornets cruised to a 93-74 victory.
Another big question is, will Kuester shake up the starting lineup? It may just happen, the Pistons starters scored just 29 points in their loss to the Clippers, a season low for a team.
UPDATE: Ben Gordon and Charlie V to Start

I’m not going to give the the long and short of the Pistons loss last night to the Hornet. I’ll forgo the “Pistons got stung last night in New Orleans” headline when EDT said all you need to know in the comment section of the game thread:
EDT: The Pistons packed it in and gave up on this game about 5 minutes in during the 1st quarter, and decided to start jacking up threes. Chris Paul by himself had 14 assists. the entire pistons team had 15 assists. Must be nice to have a power forward, a center, and a point guard, instead of a team consisting entirely of wing players. Pistons didn’t make the Hornets work too hard.
I know it’s bad when I resorted to cracking jokes last night on Twitter during the game. Like I said last night ales of Paxil, Zoloft and Prozac increase in the Detroit Metro area days following Pistons games.
I’m pretty sure at this point…Detroit wants Darko back.
Yes it’s that bad.
I’ll never waiver on my allegiance to this team, but it tends to be disheartening at times. Let’s hope new ownership gets this train back on its tracks.
