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.
INDIANA: GUARDS: GEORGE HILL is less of a creator and more of a game-manager/scorer, which fits fine in this starting five . . . LANCE STEPHENSON continues to be an enigma. His speed pushing the ball in transition is an asset, but his terrible shooting and bizarre decision-making often makes him a liability in the half court . . . C.J. WATSON has proven to be a capable second-unit point guard, but he's on his third team in three years because he's managed to give away two playoff games with monumentally bad moments . . . ORLANDO JOHNSON is unlikely to see meaningful minutes, but his role should grow slightly now that Gerald Green is gone. FORWARDS: This is PAUL GEORGE'S team. Once a do-it-all role player, he's now polished enough to create his own offense . . . As expected, DAVID WEST bounced back in his second season off a torn ACL. He's still deadly as a mid-range shooter, a savvy passer and a strong rebounder . . . LUIS SCOLA slides into Tyler Hansbrough's old role as a second-unit banger, and insurance for West and Roy Hibbert . . . DANNY GRANGER is in no-man's land. He's not better than Paul George, and probably no longer an upgrade over Lance Stephenson. His best asset may be his expiring deal . . . CHRIS COPELAND can't defend, but gives the Pacers a three-point threat . . . SOLOMON HILL doesn't figure to contribute this season. CENTERS: ROY HIBBERT proved capable of handling more minutes last season, but Indy will likely still be cautious with their asthmatic 7-foot-2 center during the regular season . . . IAN MAHINMI is back to give his six fouls and move some bodies out of the paint.

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


Detroit (11-14) at Indiana (20-3), 7:00 p.m. EDT

The Indiana Pacers have raced to the NBA's best record on the strength of their defense, which has been particularly stingy around the rim.

They figure to face a strong challenge from one of the league's top frontcourts Monday night when they host the Detroit Pistons, who must try to shake off a disappointing last-second loss.

Indiana (20-3) has reached the 20-win mark in the fewest number of games in franchise history. The Pacers' 11-0 start at home - where they're winning games by an average of 13.2 points - is also their best ever.

Their league-leading defense has been the biggest reason for their success. Opponents are averaging only 89.5 points on 41.1 percent shooting, with only two clubs scoring more than 87 points at Indiana.

Scoring near the basket against Indiana is especially tough, with Frank Vogel's squad holding teams to an average of 35.2 points in the paint.

Detroit, however, scores inside more than any other team at 51.9 points per game in the paint. Its frontcourt trio of Greg Monroe, Josh Smith and Andre Drummond is averaging a combined 42.9 points and 28.1 rebounds. The ninth overall pick in 2012, Drummond is also one of the league's most efficient scorers, converting 61.5 percent of his shots.

"Nothing we haven't seen before, but they've been playing really well," Roy Hibbert told Indiana's website.

The Pacers have won 10 straight at home in the series and 15 of 18 overall, including a 99-91 victory at Detroit on Nov. 5. The Pistons outscored Indiana 46-42 in the paint but were held to 37.9 percent shooting. Smith scored 16 but went 5 for 16, and Drummond was limited to six points and nine rebounds while Hibbert blocked seven shots.

Detroit (11-14) put forth a dominant effort inside Sunday against Portland with a 68-42 scoring advantage in the paint, but lost 111-109 in overtime after Damian Lillard hit a fadeaway at the buzzer.

It was perhaps the most demoralizing loss of the season for the Pistons, who held a 13-point advantage early in the fourth against the Western Conference's top team.

"If this doesn't sting, I don't know what does," said Smith, who scored a season-high 31. "When I was in Atlanta and we were young and we were in a lot of ballgames, but late down the stretch we couldn't figure it out - and then later we turned the corner."

Detroit is 2-4 on the second night of back-to-back games.

The Pacers claimed a 99-94 home win over Charlotte on Friday despite a sub-par performance from Paul George, who scored a season-low 10 points on 2-of-12 shooting.

"He didn't get a lot of clean looks," Vogel said. "That's on me."

George, who was averaging 24.7 points entering Friday's contest, was 12 of 18 with 31 points and 10 rebounds against Detroit last month.

The Pistons' last win at Indiana came on Jan. 29, 2008. They're averaging just 84.1 points and shooting 39.0 percent over the last eight meetings.
