Pistons slide into Oklahoma City

New, comments

Chris Paul on crutchesThe Hornets are playing without Chris Paul (pictured right), Peja Stojakovic, David West and Bobby Jackson. Even with Chauncey Billups still sidelined, this is a game the Pistons should win.

But as we all discovered the last time the Pistons faced the short-handed Hornets, absolutely nothing is guaranteed -- a lesson fans and players alike should have learned during the team's current three-game slide.

The Pistons have played their best when taking part in a back-to-back series. Tonight, they're coming off of three days of rest with another coming tomorrow. That said, this game will be played in front of a national audience on TNT, so I won't be surprised if the Pistons come out with more first-quarter energy than we've seen in most games this year.

As usual, leave any thoughts about the game in the comments.
