DETROIT: GUARDS: BRANDON JENNINGS got a three-year deal to prove himself as a capable point guard, not just a flashy scorer. He'll have plenty of talent surrounding him in Detroit . . . RODNEY STUCKEY is in a contract year and has plenty of motivation. The question is whether his decision-making will ever allow him to play full-time . . . CHAUNCEY BILLUPS could beat out Stuckey for the two-guard role. He can play both backcourt spots and should see plenty of minutes . . . KENTAVIOUS CALDWELL-POPE scored through a lot of double-teams in college. We'll see if the late-bloomer is able to be as effective against NBA athletes. With the depth in Detroit, he's looking at strictly second-unit minutes this year . . . WILL BYNUM is locked into a second-unit spot. FORWARDS: JOSH SMITH is Detroit's new alpha dog. Offensively, he's a boom-or-bust player now that he'll spend more time on the perimeter . . . KYLE SINGLER was a steadying presence last year, and with his ability to play multiple spots, he should continue to get solid minutes off the bench . . . Italian League MVP LUIGI DATOME gives them a Swiss army knife type off the bench . . . It's back to square one for JONAS JEREBKO, who fell out of favor under Lawrence Frank. He has the kind of positional flexibility and versatility GM Joe Dumars has talked up, but he'll have to earn second-unit minutes . . . Second-rounder TONY MITCHELL is an NBA athlete who can break this rotation if the effort is there . . . CHARLIE VILLANUEVA gets paid a lot of money to do very little. CENTERS: GREG MONROE will give up some touches with Josh Smith coming in, but being surrounded by athletes like Smith and Andre Drummond will cover up his defensive flaws . . . ANDRE DRUMMOND will log close to full-time minutes with Monroe playing primarily the four. His offensive game may never come, but he's a defensive and rebounding monster. JOSH HARRELLSON will be a fan favorite who plays hard in the rare occasions he sees the floor.
CHICAGO: GUARDS: After playing it very safe and sitting out all of last spring, DERRICK ROSE should pretty much be his old self. Of course, he'll have to knock some rust off early in the year . . . JIMMY BUTLER was an iron man during last year's playoffs, and his role will only grow this season. His defense and energy, as well as ability to get to the line, could make Luol Deng expendable . . . MIKE DUNLEAVY is in line for the sixth man role, primarily as a long-range threat . . . With Rose's return, KIRK HINRICH slides back to the bench. His playing time will be especially limited with Dunleavy taking up minutes at the two . . . MARQUIS TEAGUE will continue to be used only in garbage time unless Hinrich ends up getting hurt or traded. FORWARDS: LUOL DENG is back on the trading block, as the Bulls learned life isn't so bad without him now that Jimmy Butler has emerged. His offensive role could be slightly reduced . . . CARLOS BOOZER will likely be amnestied next summer, so for all intents and purposes this is a contract year. He's likely to still be a disaster defensively, which means he's a part-time player under defensive-minded head coach Tom Thibodeau . . . TAJ GIBSON will finish games and likely take over Boozer's spot a year from now. He's a superior defender and, while he doesn't have Boozer's range, he's a capable finisher around the rim . . . Rookie TONY SNELL is a Thibodeau kind of player, a long-armed, athletic perimeter defender. He's unlikely to ever do much on offense though. CENTERS: JOAKIM NOAH may be consistently banged up, but he's capable of playing through the pain. Depending on the Bulls' playoff position, he might sit some games late in the year, but Thibodeau isn't shy about playing him 35 minutes per night . . . NAZR MOHAMMED is back as a designated screener on offense and hacker on defense..

*Pistons-Bulls Preview* =======================


Detroit (9-10) at Chicago (8-9), 8:00 p.m. EDT

Even without Derrick Rose, the Chicago Bulls have shown they can be an elite team if they defend and rebound at a high level.

That formula has served them well in years past when Rose has been out, and it's what the Bulls will look to do for the remainder of the season with their star guard sidelined because of another knee injury.

Chicago will continue that approach against a team it's dominated in recent years when it hosts the Detroit Pistons on Saturday night.

Facing two-time defending NBA champion Miami on Thursday, the Bulls defended and rebounded as well as they have all season. Chicago (8-9) held the high-scoring Heat to 41.6 percent shooting, Miami's lowest of 2013-14, and won the rebounding battle 49-27.

The Bulls also had 24 second-chance points and assisted on 24 of 37 field goals in a 107-87 victory.

"We never really took our foot off the gas pedal," guard Kirk Hinrich told the team's official website. "I think it was our most consistent defensive game, our most consistent rebounding game, our most consistent game moving the ball and making it hop."

The Bulls are among the league leaders in field-goal percentage defense (42.3) and rebounds per game (46.5), but they only average 95.3 points.

"To see a win like this is good for the team moving forward, helps everyone's confidence," said forward Luol Deng, who is averaging 26.2 points in six games since Rose went down. "It reminds everyone to believe in what we are doing."

The good news for the Bulls is that they have owned the Pistons (9-10)recently, especially at home. The Bulls have taken the last 14 regular-season meetings in Chicago by an average of 11.1 points and have won 19 of 20 matchups overall, including a 99-79 road victory Nov. 27.

The Pistons lead the NBA with 14.1 offensive rebounds per game and average 99.9 points, but when they met Chicago last month, poor outside shooting cost them. Detroit went 2 of 12 from 3-point range and was outscored 48-26 in the second half.

This is the last stop on a three-game road trip for the Pistons. Detroit has already beaten the Heat and Milwaukee, and will be looking to win its fourth straight overall and on the road.

The Pistons haven't won four consecutive away games since a five-game stretch Dec. 19, 2007-Jan. 4, 2008.

"It feels really good," coach Maurice Cheeks said of the road success. "I think we are playing good basketball. We are getting a lot of good performances out of a lot of people."

The Pistons' frontcourt has been on a tear lately. Center Andre Drummond is averaging 21.7 points and 18.7 rebounds over the last three games, forward Greg Monroe had 18 points and a season-best 17 boards against the Bucks and Josh Smith is averaging 17.3 points in the past three.

"We are really starting to jell," Drummond said. "We're starting to find ourselves and find an identity for ourselves."

Drummond, Monroe and Smith combined for just 28 points in the first meeting with Chicago, which was led by Deng's 27.
