Outlook

  • Rodney Stuckey will not play tonight, according to the AP. No surprise there.
  • Will Bynum and Jason Maxiell are both coming off great games against Houston. If the Pistons can get something close to repeat performances out of them, the team may have be able to keep it close against this very good Utah squad.
  • Check out another preview of tonight’s game at Salt City Hoops.
