Interesting match between the second tier (or maybe third tier) teams in the Eastern Conference. Both maybe better than you think.
It is hard to get excited to watch this game but I am curious about what the outcome will be.
The Pistons are one of the pleasant surprises of the early season.
They have a winning record and they are getting high levels of production playing a four out one in structure. That is because that one in is Andre Drummond, an early MVP candidate if you ask me.
He is averaging 18ppg while leading the league in rebounds and the team in blocks and steals. He is a true beast.
At the point Reggie Jackson may not be typical but he has definitely proven he is much more than the reserve he was with OKC.
He is averaging 20ppg and has proven to be a pretty good go to scorer.
The Pistons still have room to grow as players like Marcus Morris and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope are shooting below career norms. The Pistons look like they are on the rise.
The Hornets are one of those teams I just don’t get. They should not be epic bad like Philly but I don’t get how they have a winning record.
They are coming off a nice bounce back win at Chicago on Saturday.
Charlotte has solid numbers both offensively and defensively but when you look at their talent it doesn’t make much sense.
Kemba Walker is a nice player but I don’t like him as a leading scorer for a good team in the NBA.
Al Jefferson is out for this one which is too bad because he is the best physical match the Hornets have for Drummond. Cody Zeller has some skill and is coming off his best game of the season with 17 points but he is going to get pushed around and could easily be a nonfactor.
The Hornets have lost two of their last three at home but those were against Golden State and Cleveland so you don’t want to read too much into recent trends.

The trends say the Hornets have been struggling at home but really they have been playing top teams. Still I think you can fade them here.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Detroit ATS
With Jefferson out the Pistons have a huge advantage inside and the complimentary pieces are all solid too. They get a nice upset to start the week.
