The Detroit Pistons face off against the Philadelphia 76ers trying to regroup after falling to the Atlanta Hawks.

The good news is that Andre Drummond nemesis Joel Embiid is out tonight with a sprained ankle.

The bad news is that All Hotford, Ben Simmons, Tobias Harris and Josh Richardson are still in the lineup. Also bad, allegedly, is that the Pistons will be without Reggie Jackson, who is out with back tightness.

Game Vitals

When: 7 p.m. EST

Where: Little Caesars Arena, Detroit

Watch: Fox Sports Detroit

Analysis

The Pistons are not one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference, but it has a chance to steal a game against one of the Conference's best. They will need to hit some shots and slow down Ben Simmons to do so. And that means a bounce back Bruce Brown performance and continued domination from Andre and Luke and D. Rose.

Projected Lineup

Detroit

Tim Frazier, Bruce Brown, Tony Snell, Markieff Morris, Andre Drummond

Philadelphia

Ben Simmons, Josh Richardson, Tobias Harris, Al Hotford, Jonah Bolden

Question

What can Tim Frazier do in the starting lineup?

Bonus Question

I have committed to getting drunk and watching The Phantom Menace tonight. How much will I regret this decision?
