2012 NBA schedule: Pistons to face Brooklyn, Indiana over weekend

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

Lawrence Frank's young Pistons will try to bounce back this weekend with two games against elite opponents.

Unable to build any momentum after his team's hot finish to the month of November, Lawrence Frank and the Detroit Pistons will try to get back in the win column this weekend with a pair of games against playoff-caliber opponents.

On Friday evening, the Pistons will tip off in Brooklyn for a conference game with a rejuvenated Nets team featuring a potent backcourt of Deron Williams and Joe Johnson. Despite having four players who are scheduled to earn at least $12 million this season, the Nets have been marred with inconsistency and are already four games behind the conference-leading New York Knicks. Although Brooklyn edged Toronto on Wednesday, the Nets will also enter Friday's game on a complete slide with losses in five of their last six games.

The Pistons will return home the following day for an evening game at The Palace of Auburn Hills on Saturday, as the Indiana Pacers and the No. 2 scoring defense in the NBA will come to town. Saturday's game will mark the first of five meetings this season between the two Central Division rivals. The Pacers will bring a varied offensive attack led by the trio of David West, Paul George and George Hill, who combine to average more than 48 points per game.
