The 2-4 Pistons are in Philadelphia to take on the on the 3-2 Sixers in their long awaited home opener. What Pistons fans need to be concerned about is the fact that Rookie Brandon Knight will get his first NBA start.
Knight will be starting in place of Rodney Stuckey, who’s out for tonight’s game with a groin injury. Austin Daye will also get the starting nod with Ben Gordon out for personal reasons.
- The good: Brandon Knight! And if Austin Daye gets his game back it will be the Knight and Daye show. The Sixers have lost the last three of four home openers.
- The bad: If you watched the Bulls game you would say just about everything.
- The unknown: Will Knight have the night of his life? Will Greg Monroe and Jonas Jerebko continue to play lights out?
