The Detroit Pistons (11-24) return to action following the All-Star break in Philadelphia against the 76ers Tuesday night.
After a hot streak in which they won seven of nine games, the Pistons dropped their final two games before the All-Star break. Philadelphia (20-14), meanwhile, has cooled off after a scorching start and are riding a five-game losing streak.
The 76ers are led by first-time All-Star Andre Iguodala (12.4 ppg, 6.4 rpg, 5.3 apg, 1.9 spg), who scored 12 points in the East's 152-149 loss Sunday night at the Amway Center. Sixth-man Louis Williams leads the team in scoring with 15.7 points per game.
Detroit is led by blossoming big man Greg Monroe, who nearly averages a double-double with 16.3 points and 9.7 rebounds per game.
