Three things to watch

1. Richard Hamilton’s defense

Hamilton’s defense comes and goes, but it’s mostly been gone yesterday. The Bucks are pretty reliant on John Salmons and Carlos Delfino to support Brandon Jennings on offense. Whether it’s at shooting guard or small forward, Hamilton will have his crack at both those guys.

2. Andrew Bogut sitting on the bench

The Bucks’ best player will miss the game, according to Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Happy Thanksgiving, Pistons!

3. The type of game I liked but nobody else does

The Bucks have the league’s best defensive rating and worst offensive rating. The also play at a slow pace, like the Pistons.

This one will probably be ugly.
