Cavaliers Vs. Pistons: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The Detroit Pistons host the Cleveland Cavaliers in their first home game of the season. The two teams should be plenty familiar with each other as they played a pair of preseason games.

The Detroit Pistons will attempt to bring home their first win of the season on Wednesday night as they host the Cleveland Cavaliers. It's only the second regular season game, but the two teams should be quite familiar with each other after playing a home-and-home during preseason play last week.

The Pistons' probable starters are likely going to be the same as they were in the season-opener with Rodney Stuckey, Ben Gordon, Tayshaun Prince and Jonas Jerebko expected to be on the court when the game tips off at 7:30 on Fox Sports Detroit.

Our friends at Detroit Bad Boys wrote up an excellent preview of the game. While the entire write-up is worth reading, the fun with numbers section is most eye-catching:

Despite the fact that the Cavaliers and Pistons shared a loss to start the season, they're roughly twice as good as the Pistons. Kyrie Irving is off to a slow start with a PER of 6.4, but this is twice as good as our own Brandon Knight, who has registered a PER of 2.8. Yeah PER sucks, but apparently so do these two. Fortunately for Detroit, our starting, um, guard Rodney Stuckey has begun the season with a 24.8 PER. What sucks is that he's no Ramon Sessions, as Mike Payne's Favorite has registered a 44.6 PER in 2011-12. Sessions is averaging 30 points, 10 assists and 7 rebounds in 36 minutes this season. Tristan Thompson is looking at ROY considerations with 30 points, 11 rebounds and 17 free throw attempts per night, if of course he plays 36 minutes every game.

The Pistons will travel to the East coast following Wednesday night's game for a game against the Boston Celtics on Friday night.
