The 19-28 #Pistons are in Orlando to take on the 13-37 Magic Wednesday night. The Pistons who are 1-1 against the Magic this season have lost four of the last six games on the road in Orlando, but won the last one at the Palace with ease.

The good: Detroit, despite the loss to Miami, has been playing well as a team and individually.  Brandon Jennings, Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond have all put in great performances in the past three games for Detroit.
The bad: The Magic will have center Nikola Vucevic back.  He missed the last meeting at the Palace. Vucevic did a number on Detroit in their first meeting this season putting up a double-double, with 20 points and 10 boards.
This battle of the underachievers  (Orlando and Detroit) was supposed to be nationally televised, but considering the way both of these teams have been playing it was nixed for a different game.
The unknown: Can Andre Drummond contain Vucevic? Can Jennings keep up his feverish pace? Will Detroit glide to victory or fumble in Florida?
Injuries:
Pistons: Josh Harrellson (knee) is questionable.
Magic: Jameer Nelson – sore left knee is listed as day-to-day.

Stat: Andre Drummond recorded his first career 20-point, 20-rebound game with 21 points and a career-high 20 rebound vs.New Orleans (1/24). Drummond became the first piston with a 20-20 game since Antonio McDyess vs. New York (3/11/09).
Stat: Arron Afflalo is averaging 18.5 points against the Pistons this season.
Stat: Brandon Jennings is averaging 20.5 points against Orlando this season.

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.

The 16-28 Pistons are in Orlando to take on the 29-15 Magic Monday night. Let’s try to forget the last time these two teams met when Orlando pummeled Detroit on Dec. 3 despite missing Dwight Howard, Jameer Nelson and J.J. Redick, who were all held out with flu-like symptoms.

Charlie Villanueva (right ankle sprain) is listed as questionable.

Game drama aside, there is more of that brewing with between Kuester and Rip.
