The Pistons vs. The Suns

The 3-8 #Pistons will host the 6-5 Phoenix Suns Wednesday night at the Palace of Auburn Hills. The Pistons need to turn things around after a disappointing 107-93 loss at home to the Magic Monday night. It wont be easy against a Suns team has won eight of the last 11 games against the Pistons.

The good:Nice to see Andre Drummond put up a double-double after quite a few disappointing games.
The bad: The Pistons one of the league’s worst at home in defensive field-goal percentage at 47.2.
Their worst defensive performance of the season came Monday at home, letting Orlando shoot 51.9 percent.
The unknown: Will Stan Van Gundy resort to mixing the lineup up considering their play of late? Will he give a little more time to Caron Butler who dropped 20 on Monday night.

Injuries
Pistons:
: Gigi Datome and Cartier Martin are doubtful. Jodie Meeks is OUT.
Suns: None

Fact: Josh Smith averaged 20.0 points and 10.5 rebounds against the Suns last season.
