Three things to watch

1. No Gerald Wallace

Gerald Henderson will start in place of Gerald Wallace, according to Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer. That’s obviously a pretty big break for the Pistons.

Henderson isn’t a great perimeter shooter, so I hope Tayshaun Prince shows the same dedication to help defense as he did against the Hornets last week.

2. Charlie Villanueva on the glass

Boris Diaw is one of the league’s poorer rebounding power forwards. If everything goes to plan, Charlie Villanueva should have his way with him on the boards. That would allow the Pistons to keep one of their best offensive weapons on the court.

If Villanueva isn’t getting the job done on the glass, I suspect Greg Monroe would dominate Diaw for rebounds. But Monroe’s offense game doesn’t threaten the Bobcats quite as much.

3. New Bobcats

Paul Silas will make his debut as the Bobcats’ head coach tonight. I don’t expect Charlotte to look much different, but keep an eye out for a few wrinkles. Hopefully, they confuse the Bobcats more than the Pistons.

    We are literally getting BLOCKED out of this game. No boxing out on the defensive end and allowing offensive rebounds on almost every possession. When you have Wilcox come in and have 10 points/7rebs in 12 minutes of play then it is clearly the team lacking effort…it just makes me sick to my stomach to see this crap!
