KEY GAME INFORMATION
CHARLOTTE: GUARDS: KEMBA WALKER has become a more efficient scorer as well as a capable distributor. He'll sacrifice some shots with Al Jefferson coming in, but he should have more space with which to operate. Down the line, he could mesh nicely with pick-and-pop four Cody Zeller . . . GERALD HENDERSON transformed from a raw athlete into an effective, efficient scorer in the second half of last season. He should be the No. 2 or 3 option this year . . . RAMON SESSIONS is locked in as a sixth man. He's not a shooter, but his ability to get to the line makes him an effective second-unit scorer . . . BEN GORDON seems to be going through the motions at this point. His real value this season is his enormous expiring contract. FORWARDS: MICHAEL KIDD-GILCHRIST is going to be a quality NBA player for a long time, but he's not close to being a major factor offensively. He'll continue to defend and rebound effectively for a wing, but he's a No. 4 or 5 option on the offensive end of the court . . . JOSH MCROBERTS proved good enough to be a rotational player on a bad team last year. He has a chance to start early on while the Bobcats bring some young guys along . . . CODY ZELLER struggled against length and athleticism in college, so it seems the 'Cats think he can be more of a stretch, pick-and-pop four. If he proves to be a shooter, he's athletic enough and a good enough rebounder to be a solid NBA starter . . . JEFFERY TAYLOR is a forgettable second-unit player who can defend a couple of positions. ANTHONY TOLLIVER won't see the floor much, but he can stretch the floor with his shooting ability. CENTERS: We'll see how the Bobcats mesh with AL JEFFERSON, the NBA's worst defensive big man and a lane-clogging black hole on offense. He can score, and at (an incredible) $40 million-plus, Charlotte will run everything through him . . . BISMACK BIYOMBO will play some alongside Jefferson, as the Bobcats desperately need to cancel out Jefferson's defense. But the young big man figures to be used more sparingly this year . . . BRENDAN HAYWOOD is still kicking around.
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.

*Bobcats-Pistons Preview* =========================

By ELI KABERON STATS Writer

Charlotte (23-30) at Detroit (22-30), 7:30 p.m. EDT

Fresh off a dominating performance over All-Star weekend, Andre Drummond may have solidified his place as one of the NBA's top young players.

Drummond can boost that claim by helping end the Detroit Pistons' five-year playoff drought, a goal well within their reach as they begin the second half of the season Tuesday night by hosting the Charlotte Bobcats to open a home-and-home series.

The Pistons are within a half-game of the Bobcats for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The teams meet again Wednesday in Charlotte.

In the league's Rising Stars Challenge on Friday, Drummond finished with 30 points and 25 rebounds while leading his team, managed by former Piston Grant Hill, to a 142-136 victory. Drummond was named the game's MVP.

"My mindset was to come out and play with energy, like I've been doing all year," Drummond told the Pistons' website. "I had my mind set to win the MVP, so I went out there and did it."

With the Pistons (22-30), Drummond has been playing some of his best ball of the season lately. He's scored in double figures in a career-high eight straight games, averaging 15.8 points and 15.0 rebounds while shooting 67.1 percent from the field. Detroit is 5-3 in that span as the second-year center has recorded seven double-doubles, giving him 39 on the season to rank second in the league behind Minnesota's Kevin Love.

Against the Bobcats (23-30), Drummond will be going up against Al Jefferson, who has been at the top of his game lately as well. Over the past eight games, Jefferson is recording 26.9 points and 11.0 rebounds per contest. The Bobcats are 8-2 when he has more than 25 points.

Jefferson got the better of Drummond in the only meeting this season, scoring 15 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter as Charlotte won 116-106 in Detroit on Dec. 20. Jefferson also had 14 rebounds while Drummond grabbed 15 to go with his 14 points and five blocks.

Kemba Walker scored what remains a season-high 34 points that night and is averaging 26.2 in the last five meetings.

Walker runs the point for a Bobcats team averaging a league-low 12.7 turnovers, including no more than 11 in five of the last six games. Charlotte committed 10 in its most recent game Wednesday but forced only nine by Brooklyn, which had an 18-5 edge in points off turnovers and won 105-89.

"You have to play with more discipline," coach Steve Clifford said. "When the chance is there to make a play, you have to make it. I thought our turnovers were just terrible."

Defense will be a big part of the Pistons' focus during the home stretch under interim coach John Loyer, who is 1-1 since taking over for the fired Maurice Cheeks.

Loyer said following their last game, a 93-89 loss to Cleveland on Wednesday, that the team needs to improve on getting back and not allowing easy baskets. Detroit allows 13.8 fast-break points per game, ranked 24th in the league.

"An area we're going to need to improve on is our transition defense and spells," Loyer said. "When we get back and load to the basketball and get all five guys inside the ball we are pretty good. It's when we either step up the floor or don't get the ball stop."
