Detroit Pistons vs. Orlando Magic

The Situation

Andre Drummond struggled in his second professional (summer league) game. There is no getting around it. He had trouble on offense and on defense and failed to make an impact. But in that regard he joined a host of his teammates -- Kim English struggled. Brandon Knight struggled. Khris Middleton ... well, he was downright bad.

The squad looks to rebound today against the Thunder. The biggest name on the Thunder's roster might not play, however, as Perry Jones III sprained his ankle during his team's game against the Indiana Pacers. Other notable names on the Thunder roster include reserve guard Reggie Jackson, big man Cole Aldrich, who will match up today against Drummond, and Morris Almond. Almond is sort of like Austin Daye in that he has a combination of a great stroke and questionable other basketball skills to light up the summer league against inferior opponents.

Questions for the Game

Who is going to have the biggest rebound performance -- Drummond, English, Knight, or Kyle Singler?
