Charlotte Bobcats vs. Detroit Pistons preview -- Game 12

"I Won't Be Found" - The Tallest Man On Earth (and also the songs "The Gardner" and "Pistol Dreams")

Game Overview: Well, that was a great way to start the back-to-back-to-back.

Putting it behind us now, the Bobcats take on the Pistons at home tonight. The Pistons are a young squad, with some promising pieces and some bloated contracts tied up in Ben Gordon, Charlie Villanueva and Tayshaun Prince (for some reason). But Greg Monroe is a developing monster, both in the paint and can stretch it out past the paint, too. Brandon Knight has begun to start, and though not distributing the ball exceptionally well, he can score.

All that said, the Pistons are last in pace (according to basketball-reference) points per game, 28th in rebounds per game and 26th in assists per game.

This game will be a beauty.

Key Matchup: Greg Monroe vs. Byron Mullens - If Monroe backs up last night's 16-rebound performance with something similar, the Bobcats will probably face another rough rebounding deficit, giving up precious opportunities to turn away the opponents on defense.
