The Detroit Pistons were absolutely embarrassed on Tuesday by the Philadelphia 76ers, losing 97-68 at home to the Atlantic division's best team. Fortunately for Detroit, the second leg of their back to back comes against the league's worst team, the Charlotte Bobcats.
As per usual, Rodney Stuckey and Greg Monroe showed well during the Philly loss, and will need to continue that against the Cats. The Bobcats aren't quite as good at scoring points as the 76ers are though, so they'll need a bit less help from the supporting cast. Charlotte does at least have the advantage of not having played yet since the All Star break ended.
Gerald Henderson could return to the Bobcats after being injured for almost the entirety of February, which should inject some power back into the Cats offense that has been led by a rookie, Kemba Walker, in Henderson's absence. The Pistons have been relatively healthy by comparison, but have been playing basketball that has been almost as bad. Detroit boasts a win over Charlotte already this year, a 98-91 win back in January that just happened to be their first win on the road in a season where they've had quite a bit of trouble doing so.
The game will be at the Palace of Auburn Hills at 7:30 PM ET.
