INDIANA: GUARDS: The Pacers went 7-2 during the regular season and won a playoff series with GEORGE HILL in the starting five. He averaged 13.9 PPG and 5.3 APG in those regular season starts . . . PAUL GEORGE is a defensive stopper who is making strides on the offensive end. If he can find the touches, his scoring average will rise . . . D.J. AUGUSTIN has a skill set similar to Hill's. Maybe he'll push him for minutes later in the year, but more likely he'll shoot corner threes off the bench . . . GERALD GREEN is another athlete for their second unit . . . LANCE STEPHENSON has a chance for a bigger role, but he's been atrocious to this point of his career. FORWARDS: DANNY GRANGER's touches dropped last season, but his shot selection improved as last year went on. He'll continue to be a borderline All-Star . . . DAVID WEST's knee should be fully recovered from his torn ACL in late 2010-11. He was their best player in the postseason and should be a star this season with his ability to knock down shots . . . TYLER HANSBROUGH looks like he's settling in as a career second unit player. His lack of athleticism really limits his upside . . . JEFF PENDERGRAPH may or may not hold on to a roster spot in a 12th-man role. CENTERS: They're paying ROY HIBBERT like a franchise player, and he has the ability to control both ends of the court. The question is whether they'll now play him 30-plus minutes, or continue to use him as more of a part-time player . . . IAN MAHINMI should step in as a decent backup center . . . Rookie MILES PLUMLEE was a part-time player at Duke and is highly unlikely to contribute in his first season.
DETROIT: GUARDS: RODNEY STUCKEY was hampered by nagging injuries a year ago. If he's healthy, he's the best offensive weapon they have . . . BRANDON KNIGHT is more of a combo guard running the point. He can shoot, but doesn't bring much else to the table . . . With Ben Gordon gone, WILL BYNUM has a chance to regain a significant role . . . The Pistons' two second-round picks have a chance to carve out big roles. KIM ENGLISH has a skill set similar to Gordon's, capable of heating up and scoring in bunches . . . KHRIS MIDDLETON is more of a spot-up, catch-and-shoot threat only . . . Former No. 6 overall pick JONNY FLYNN agreed to a non-guaranteed contract in October, as he is no guarantee to even make this sorry roster. FORWARDS: TAYSHAUN PRINCE is still hanging on as the Pistons' best all-around player . . . JASON MAXIELL should be able to reclaim his starting spot early. He rebounds and takes up space . . . JONAS JEREBKO showed flashes but looked rusty in his first year back from an Achilles injury . . . 2011 2nd-rounder KYLE SINGLER has a good chance to step into the rotation after a solid year in Spain . . . COREY MAGGETTE was acquired in a Ben Gordon salary dump. He'll see limited minutes . . . AUSTIN DAYE regressed big-time last year. Unless he gets off to a hot start, he'll be on the outside looking in at the rotation . . . TERRENCE WILLIAMS is seeking a new lease on life, but could be too much of a head case to realize he's wasting his talent . . . The Pistons are counting down the days left on CHARLIE VILLANUEVA's contract (two years). CENTERS: GREG MONROE is a solid fit in Frank's system. He's not a great athlete, but he can score and move the ball on offense, as well as rebound . . . ANDRE DRUMMOND could one day be a perfect fit alongside Monroe. But for now, he'll watch and learn as a raw, boom-or-bust prospect . . . VIACHESLAV KRAVTSOV is an athletic big who will bring energy, but little offense in limited minutes.

*Pacers-Pistons Preview* ========================


Indiana (33-21) at Detroit (22-34), 7:30 p.m. EDT

The Indiana Pacers haven't had any problems this season with the Detroit Pistons.

Still, having Danny Granger back could be a nice boost for the Central Division leaders as they complete this home-and-home set.

Granger might make his long-awaited season debut on Saturday night when the visiting Pacers go for the season sweep over the Pistons.

Whatever concerns existed about Indiana (34-21) playing without Granger, who has been sidelined with patellar tendinosis in his left knee, have been quieted by Paul George, David West, George Hill and others as the Pacers have moved into second place in the Eastern Conference. They took over that spot on Friday with a 114-82 victory over Detroit (22-35) and with New York losing 100-98 at Toronto.

Indiana routed the Knicks 125-91 on Wednesday in its first game after the All-Star break.

"I'm very, very pleased with how our guys are approaching the post All-Star break," said coach Frank Vogel, whose team's 8-2 stretch started with a 98-79 victory over the visiting Pistons on Jan. 30. "They have incredible focus and energy. Our offense is really coming on."

That's a scary thought for opponents as the Pacers have yet to have Granger - their leading scorer in each of the last five seasons - see any action. Indiana is scoring 103.5 points per game over the last 10 contests to improve its season average to 93.8.

The Pacers lead the NBA in scoring defense (89.8) and field goal defense at 41.4 percent.

"We know were an elite level team and we have to show that every night," said rookie forward Orlando Johnson, who hit three 3-pointers and finished with a career-best 14 points - all in the first half - on Friday to join all five Pacers' starters in double figures.

Whether Granger returns or not, Johnson can expect to get plenty of minutes going forward. He leads all Pacers reserves with 28 points during the team's three-game winning streak.

"(Johnson's) not coming out of the rotation any time soon," Vogel said.

The Pistons need to do something different after their most lopsided defeat since a 116-84 loss at Atlanta on April 18, but they know it won't be easy.

"With Indiana, it's all about blitzkrieg," coach Lawrence Frank said. "They blitzkrieged New York, who bliztkrieged us. There's no surprise about what they did."

Detroit chances of bouncing back on Saturday could be hurt if second-year guard Brandon Knight misses a second straight game due to a hyperextended right knee.

If Knight can't play, Rodney Stuckey - the only Pistons starter in double figures (11) on Friday - will likely be in the lineup again next to point guard Jose Calderon, who is coming off his worst performance (five points, three assists) in nine games since being acquired from Toronto on Jan. 30.

The Pistons, losers of 13 of 16 to Indiana, had won three in a row over the visiting Pacers prior to an 88-77 defeat on Dec. 15

Indiana last swept this season series in 2009-10.
