Notes

  • It’s looking more likely Charlie Villanueva will play again this season. As critical as most are of his game at this point, him playing is a good thing for all parties.
  • Surprising stat via Ian Levy at Hickory High: The Pistons are actually third in the league with nearly three more scoring opportunities per game than their opponents. Only Portland and tonight’s opponent Memphis are better.
