The Pistons vs. The Grizzlies

The 3-6 #Pistons are in Memphis to take on the 8-1 Grizzles for the second game of a back-to-back to finish off their road trip Saturday night. Detroit is coming off a much-needed win in Oklahoma City Friday night, while the Grizzlies are rolling and currently on an 18 game home regular season winning streak.

The good:

  • The Grizzlies, who are tied with Houston for the best record in the NBA. They rallied from 26 points down to top the Kings on Thursday night.
  • Brandon Jennings, who’s playing like he’s got something to prove after a slow start to the season. Jennings 29 in the Pistons 96-89 victory Friday night.

The bad: Just when you think Caldwell-Pope is coming around, he goes 3-for-10 and 1-for-6 from downtown.
The unknown: Do Pistons fans still miss Tayshaun Prince, who’s not the Grizzlies small forward? Tayshaun in averaging 21 minutes and 6.4 points off the bench for Memphis. We remember him like this.

: Gigi Datome and Cartier Martin are doubtful (or more like doubtful they’ll get any playing time). Jodie Meeks is out.
Grizzlies: Nick Calathes (Suspended List) is OUT
Fact: Greg Monroe averaged 17.5 against the Grizzlies last season.
Fact: Detroit has lost eight consecutive games to Memphis and four straight on the road
