A night after Oklahoma City Thunder spoiled Detroit's home opener, the Pistons have an opportunity to ruin Milwaukee's on Halloween night.

It's going to be interesting to see how Detroit bounces back from a bad loss. I don't think anyone in their right mind would constitute last night's game as anything but that.

Hopefully, a trip back to Milwaukee for the first time in a regular season game will induce the resurgence of Charlie Villanueva. He is averaging just 7 points in the first two games as Detroit's starting power forward and is shooting just 32% from the field.

Hopefully we'll see Austin Daye a little more tonight, as he played just a minute last night. He and Carlos Delfino scrapped during the preseason, so maybe we'll see him match up against him some. It would also provide Tayshaun Prince a little bit of a break since he was assigned a tough task last night with Kevin Durant.

Richard Hamilton will miss his second straight game due to a sprained right ankle. Ben Gordon is expected to make his second consecutive start in his spot.

Game time is at 8:30 PM EST, so hopefully that will be late enough for you trick or treaters to get back safely to your homes, spread out the candy, pick out the good amongst the bad, and share some candies while sharing your thoughts in the game thread.

Go Pistons and Happy Halloween!
