What to look for
I answered a few questions for Kyle Weidie of TruthAboutIt.net about tonight’s game, so click through for those – especially why I think the matchup between Brandon Knight and Detroit native Jordan Crawford is crucial. But I think Kyle made the most interesting point:
Interestingly enough, the seven-win Pistons rank fifth in the NBA in fouls drawn on opponents per game (21.3)—after the Lakers, Timberwolves, Nuggets and Thunder, and just barely better than the Nets. Could spell trouble for a depleted Wizards squad, whether Bradley Beal and a sickly Jan Vesely are available or not. [NOTE:Beal is a game-time decision tonight.]
Beal and Nene are both out, so the Wizards are especially depleted. Hopefully, the Pistons can take advantage.
