Pregame Reading:

The Detroit Free Press’ Omari Sankofa II looked at Dennis Smith Jr.’s improved play as the Pistons prepare to play his former team tonight.

Meanwhile, Rod Beard of The Detroit News wrote about Josh Jackson and how his two-way play off the bench is serving as a catalyst for the Pistons. Unreleated, but, Josh should definitely get some dunk contest consideration this year, right?

And, finally, some gossip: Despite juggling numerous point guards right now, a report from Ian Begley of SNY says Detroit is interested in acquiring old friend Spencer Dinwiddie from the Brooklyn Nets. Interesting.

Enjoy the game!
