Pistons probably have the same feelings I do right now -- it's good to be home. Detroit returns to the Palace after their woeful west coast trip ended in an unceremonious spanking in Phoenix. I'm home for some grub with the family.

But for the Pistons it's like returning home to see their nemesis standing in the kitchen talking to mom, eating the always delicious brownies she made. The Cavs are that unwelcome homecoming guest.

The Pistons will have to do their best to send Cleveland back to, well, Cleveland, so we can have a Happy Thanksgiving in Detroit this year. It won't be easy. Jonas Jerebko will have the daunting task of stopping LBJ (with a little help from his friends). Luckily for the Pistons, Lebron won't have the help of Shaquille O'Neal tonight, as he's set to miss his sixth straight game.

As for the Pistons, hopefully they can get Charlie Villanueva going early and often (and preferably in the paint). I'd also like to see Stuckey rebound from his dreadful west coast trip and either a) start knocking down some of the shots he takes near the basket or b) dishing it off to open teammates.

Tip off is at 8 PM EST. Hopefully, you'll join the game thread if you'll be around a computer (although we're also available via your mobile device as long as you get internet). If you're out enjoying TBBNOTY, be safe and check in after the game with your thoughts. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone (even if you aren't a Pistons fan).
