DETROIT: LAST SEASON: 41-41, lost in first round of Eastern Conference playoffs.
COACH: Dwane Casey (second season, 11th NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Reggie Jackson (15.4 ppg), G Bruce Brown (4.3 ppg), G Tony Snell (6.0 ppg), F Blake Griffin (24.5 ppg), C Andre Drummond (17.3 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: G Wayne Ellington, G Ish Smith.
KEY ADDITIONS: G Derrick Rose, G Tony Snell.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: There are no illusions about Rose still being an MVP candidate, but he averaged 18 points a game last season and could be a real X-factor for Detroit. The Pistons have relied on the trio of Griffin, Drummond and Jackson for a while now, and Jackson has been the most erratic member of that group. If Rose gives Detroit more production at point guard, that could be a big plus for the Pistons, although his health is always a concern.
OUTLOOK: Griffin was simply terrific last season, re-establishing himself as one of the game's stars, but his injury woes popped up again right around playoff time. Detroit would love to manage his minutes in a way that keeps him fresh for the end of the season, but that won't be easy if the Pistons are on the playoff bubble like last season. Another postseason berth is certainly possible, and if things break right, maybe Detroit can get a more favorable seed and win a round, but the gap between the Pistons and the conference's top teams remains formidable.
CHARLOTTE: LAST SEASON: 39-43, missed playoffs.
COACH: James Borrego (second season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Terry Rozier (9.0 ppg), G Dwyane Bacon (7.3 ppg), F PJ Washington (rookie), F Miles Bridges (7.5 ppg), C Cody Zeller (10.1 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: PG Kemba Walker, SG Jeremy Lamb.
KEY ADDITIONS: Rozier, Washington.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: All eyes will be on Rozier. He replaces Walker, a three-time All-Star and the franchise's career scoring leader. Walker averaged 25.6 points last season, so the Hornets will need to find production from players like Bridges and Bacon. Rozier is expected to put up better assist numbers than Walker but doesn't figure to come close to matching his scoring output. One big question for the Hornets will be who they turn to in late-game situations to make big shots. Walker and Lamb have handled that role in recent years, but both are gone. Borrego says it will be something the team must figure out moving forward.
OUTLOOK: Make no doubt about it, the Hornets are in complete rebuilding mode and most view them as a sure lottery team next season. This season isn't about wins and losses, but rather getting young players as many quality minutes as possible. That means Bridges, Bacon, Washington and Malik Monk will see plenty of playing time while aging veterans Nic Batum and Marvin Williams are likely relegated to reserve roles. Charlotte lacks NBA experience, but its youthful roster will provide plenty of energy and enthusiasm and could give some opponents problems. This team may not be very talented, but it will compete.
Slumping Hornets aim to get back on track vs. Pistons

The Charlotte Hornets adjusted their starting lineup but couldn't alter the way a game finished this week.

So that puts a premium on a better result Friday night against the visiting Detroit Pistons when the teams meet in Charlotte, N.C.

Charlotte is on a four-game losing streak, while the Pistons have dropped three games in a row.

Hornets coach James Borrego said he would evaluate the various lineup combinations.

"See how this group reacted," he said. "We had a different rotation with starting (Devonte' Graham and Terry Rozier) together."

The search for a spark is ongoing. In Wednesday night's 119-117 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, Rozier matched his career high with 33 points.

"He looked much more comfortable," Borrego said. "His rhythm was there. He competed and played hard."

Graham was a starter for the first time this season, ending up with 19 points that included a final-minute tying 3-point basket.

The overriding issue for the Hornets tends to be sustaining their good stretches. They broke a tie with a 12-0 run in the third quarter and then saw the lead vanish.

"You've got to find a way to close out," Borrego said. "You do that with poise, execution and defending. ... They're competing. They're playing hard. They're playing to the last second."

The Charlotte backcourt also received a boost from Malik Monk, whose contributions have started to become more consistent.

"Malik was aggressive. He made good reads, good plays," Borrego said. "There's real growth there. He's making plays for us right now."

For the second time in four games, Charlotte rookie forward PJ Washington was held to five points or less. Borrego said that's all part of the learning curve for a player who's suddenly thrust into a steady diet of games.

"I don't want to wear him out. It's a long year," Borrego said. "I trust him. I like him. I think he's getting better."

The Pistons had a strange, weather-impacted trip to Miami, meaning little rest for back-to-back games at the beginning of the week.

Overcoming such challenges is something Detroit coach Dwane Casey would like to see from his team.

"It's the way you start," Casey said. "We have to fight through adversity. That's what life is about, that's what this game is about."

Guard Luke Kennard agreed.

"We can't let excuses dictate how we play, how we start games," Kennard said.

Kennard has led Detroit in scoring in the past three games with 29, 25 and 22 points in that order. He overcame a rough shooting stretch in the last game against the Miami Heat, something that he has been addressing so that he can effectively move on after the ball doesn't go in.

"I've kind of worked on that ... mentally being locked in," Kennard said.

It's worth seeing how Detroit forward Blake Griffin and guard Derrick Rose responded from returning from injuries to play Monday. By design, they weren't on the court Tuesday so that they wouldn't be playing on back-to-back nights.

The visit to Charlotte is the lone game across a seven-day span for Detroit. Still, it hasn't been an uneventful period for the Pistons, with guard Khyri Thomas undergoing foot surgery that will cost him at least a couple of months of the season.
