The 10-11 #Pistons will host the 9-11 Minnesota Timberwolves at the Palace of Auburn Hills Tuesday evening. Detroit, who were on a roll before losing to the Heat at home on Sunday, would like to take care of a Timberwolves team that has won the last six against Detroit.
The good: Chauncey Billups will finally play Tuesday night for Detroit. The Timberwolves have hit a bad patch and are losers of six of their last seven games on the road.
The bad: The Wolves will have Kevin Love back on the floor, who can give any team trouble. Minnesota has been terrible defensively of late giving up 108.2 points and 52.2 percent shooting in their last six games.
The unknown: Rodney Stuckey is listed as questionable, while Bynum is still listed as doubtful with his left adductor strain.
Stat: Andre Drummond still leads the NBA in field goal percentage with 63.5%
Fact: Andre Drummond needs one steal for his 100th career steal.
Fact: The Pistons are first in the NBA in steals this season, averaging 9.8 steals per game.
Tip off is at 7:30 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 #Pistons opened up the season Wednesday night and it really was a magical night at The Palace of Auburn Hills. The fans got introduced to almost a whole new team, but the return of Chauncey Billups was magical.
To add to it in the fourth quarter when Chauncey was at the line shooting a free throw, the crowd started an MVP chant.
Here are the 2013 Detroit Pistons introductions.
I took this one myself, enjoy!
The 25-45 Pistons are back in action Wednesday night to host the 48-22 Miami Heat at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

- The good: It’s hard to give a good right now, but it helps that this is a home game and one of the last games (besides Boston) against a solid team.
- The bad:The Pistons have dropped from 3-29 when giving up 100 or more points.
- The unknown: How many Rony Seikaly jerseys will we see at the Palace? And is Chris Wilcox going to DOMINATE!
