I hope you’re able to contain your excitement for tonight’s In-Season Tournament game that pits the Detroit Pistons against the Philadelphia 76ers. It is Detroit’s first tournament game of the season. And of course, it is against one of the league’s best teams, and it is while they are still without a handful of important rotation players. Detroit’s losing streak is likely to continue, though, they did get close to upsetting the Giannis-less Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday. It’s the NBA. I suppose anything can happen.

For Detroit, it is a chance for Jalen Duren to go up against Joel Embiid, and for Marcus Sasser to get a closer look at Tyrese Maxey. Maxey, who was also a lower first-round pick, has been a comp for Sasser, who has gotten off to a hot start this season. I don’t think they have similar games, but hopefully, Maxey doesn’t make that too obvious tonight.
