Pistons vs. Nets, 2013-2014 NBA Preseason: Game Time, TV and radio, odds and more

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

Following a close home loss to the defending NBA champs, the Pistons (1-1) are back at it in Brooklyn to face the new-look Nets (1-0). This is your preseason game GameThread.

The Pistons (or most of them anyway) are at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Saturday night to tip off against the revamped Nets. The third preseason tip will happen around 7:30 p.m. ET. While the media notes suggest there is no TV broadcast, I'm sure NBA League Pass will have it. The game can also be heard on the radio -- it says 97.1 FM The Ticket on NBA.com, but with the Tigers playing Game 1 of the American League Championship Series around the same time, I'm guessing it will be on 950 AM again it's on 104.3 WOMC, according to the team (H/T freywagg).

Sean put up an in-depth preview earlier today pointing out that rookie guard Peyton Siva will make his debut against the Nets. Siva missed the first two preseason games due to a calf injury. Unfortunately, Brandon Jennings will miss his second straight preseason game with wisdom tooth pain. He did not even travel with the team. Chauncey Billups may sit out again, as well; it's not certain. And Luigi Datome most likely will not play again either. He supposedly put on a dazzling shooting display at shootaround, though, and Maurice Cheeks is hoping he's close:

"The way I see him shooting, I'm hoping he's getting closer. We could use him out there."

I can't wait to see him play (and shoot).

With Stuckey also out, the Pistons will probably trot out Bynum and Singler to start the game in the backcourt. Andre Drummond, Greg Monroe and Josh Smith in the exciting frontcourt.

For the Nets, they'll be without Deron Williams, Jason Terry, Tornike Shengelia and former Pistons coach Lawrence Frank. Frank, an assistant to first-year coach Jason Kidd, is with his wife, according to Keith Langlois.

Bonus Question of the Game:

Will KCP make better than 25-percent of his shots? He's 3 for 20 in two games (that don't count when it's all said and done).
