The 10-12 #Pistons are in New Orleans for a second game of a back-to-back against the 9-10 Pelicans. The Pistons, who lost both contests to the Pelicans last season, would love to extend their four-game road winning streak especially after the horrible showing against the Timberwolves on their home court Tuesday night.

The good: The Pelicans will be without two of their big names in Tyreke Evans and Anthony Davis.
The Pistons have outscored opponents by an average of 11.5 points during their road winning streak.
The bad: Detroit game up a season-high 121 points and recorded a season-low four steals Tuesday night.

The unknown: Can Chauncey Billups shake off the rush on his shot after his injury?  Can Gigi Datome ever consistently make a shot with the role he’s been thrown into?
Injury Report: Rodney Stuckey is listed as questionable, while Bynum is still listed as doubtful with his left adductor strain.
