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.

OBEY – Andre the Giant

Yes he’s played just a handful of preseason games for the #Pistons.  Yes he hasn’t really proved himself in the NBA.  Yes he’s just a 19 year old Lottery Pick “project,” but you can bet Andre Drummond is already turning heads in Detroit and the NBA.

ROY…maybe.
DunkTastic…yup.
Making the Palace a Block Party every time he steps on court…you bet.
Game changer…it looks that way.
Jump on the Andre the Giant bandwagon before it’s full.
