    Here's your ballgame:

    The Pistons are the #1 paint scoring team in the NBA: 55ppg

    The Pacers are the #1 paint defending team in the NBA: 30ppg.

    Unless the turnover margin is significantly lopsided (both teams tied at 2nd to last in the NBA in turnovers), whichever team wins the trenches wins the game.

    Going to be a good matchup.

    Drummond vs Hibbert
    Monroe vs West
    George vs JSmith

    I like our back court a bit better though which should be the deciding factor. Remember the last time Jennings played us, he was AWFUL.

    Detroit's an awful city with an awful NBA team. I look forward to total destruction by the Pacers.

    He looks a lot more comfortable playing with bigs that can put the ball in the basket. Small sample size, though. Time will tell.

    He's a fantastic passer. That much I know.

    You could replace "us" with any team in the NBA, and that statement would likely remain true. A shoot-first point guard with a career FG% of .394... *shudders*

    Smith, Drummond and Monroe is pretty damn scary if you ask me. Glad the Pacers have size and really good guards.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    I like Sloan's speed off the bench matching Jenning's off the bench. I think it'll be a grind through 3 quarters but we'll pull away when we need too.

    They look amazing and absolutely awful within a 2-minute span. Chemistry is a big problem right now, and the learning curve for them is steeper for them because the 3 bigs play in close proximity. They can't just space the floor and simplify things. No team runs more offense through the low post than Detroit, which also leads to lots of turnovers.

    I can show you that 3-minute clip of Smith, Monroe and Drummond throwing no-look passes to each other for dunks/layups inside of a phone booth, but the truth is there have been just as many plays where they've turned it over and given up a dunk at the other end.

    There's plenty of evidence to suggest that this can work out, but it's going to be a very long process, and I honestly don't think they are far enough along to beat Indiana, even at home with JC Watson starting.

    I wish the Pistons still played in Ft Wayne. It would make for a much more fun rivalry.

    I'd feel a lot better about our chances if Chauncey Billups hadn't come back to Detroit. That guy knows how to win a ballgame.

    Looking forward to seeing the new-look Pistons for the first time. 'Tis a shame we won't be seeing those Motor City jerseys, though.

    They looked better than I thought they would. Maybe because you couldn't read the font from a distance and you only only noticed the color scheme (which admittedly is pretty cool).

    FYI, today is the 25th anniversary of the first regular season game ever played at the Palace. They might do something to commemorate, I don't know.

    Not coincidentally, their opponent that night was the expansion Hornets, making this also the 25th birthday of the Hornets/Pelicans in the NBA. Wow, I feel old.

    I dont want to lose to the Pistons......but I am glad that the Pistons are good enough to compete in the East....their Frontcourt is frickin scary. I really hope that we are able to keep up on the rebounding end. I am guessing whoever gets in foul trouble ( Hibbert Vs. Drummond ) will win that rebounding contest.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Brandon Jennings getting his first start tonight. Billups will start at the 2 but I'm guessing Stuckey will play more minutes. He matches up with Stephenson better than Chauncey.

    Honestly, I don't see the Pacers leaving Detroit with a win.

    I think we are the better team, but I just don't have a good vibe about tonight.

    Doesn't seem like a good night for David West to play well, but he's got to do it eventually, right?

    Honestly, I see this coming down to which Georgetown Center can stay in the game the longest. The Pacers need to attack them every single play to start the game hoping to get a few early calls on Monroe or Drummond.

    I think Roy is the superior talent wise here, or really against any center except maybe MAYBE Dwight
