Pistons host Knicks on Thanksgiving Eve

The Knicks are in town, and with a 7-7 record, they're not the same team everyone laughed at last year. Hell, after trading Jamal Crawford and Zach Randolph, they're not the same team they were last week. You know all those chemistry problems the Pistons have had trying to adjust post-Chauncey? Expect to see a lot of that from the visitors as Mike D'Antoni tries to integrate Tim Thomas and Al Harrington on the fly.

To make matters worse, the Knicks should be extremely short-handed -- Cuttino Mobley (heart), Nate Robinson (groin) and Stephon Marbury (sanity) are all sidelined, meaning the only healthy guards the Knicks have available are Anthony Roberson and Chris Duhon. With the Pistons riding a two-game losing streak, this game should taste better than tomorrow's turkey.
