Three things to watch
1. Brandon Roy’s health
Brandon Roy will play limited minutes tonight, according to Jason Quick of The Oregonian. If Roy is limited, that’s obviously a plus for the Pistons. Roy’s issue isn’t exactly clear, but it appears to be conditioning-related.
The latter matchup will have immediate dividends. The former will pay off if Roy is gassed at the end of the game.
2. The Ben Wallace-Marcus Camby matchup
Maybe most of you aren’t intrigued by this, but I am. I love defense, and these are two defensive experts. Both are past their physical peaks, but they’re crafty enough to get the job done.
3. Road struggles
Winning on the road is very difficult for bad teams. The Pistons are 0-3 away from The Palace this season. The Pistons previous two victories said they weren’t imploding. A win tonight would say they might be OK.
