Matchup to Watch
Kemba Walker vs. Reggie Jackson: Jackson has been dynamic the past nine games, having settled in as the Pistons’ starting point guard after the trade from the Oklahoma City Thunder.
▪ With the Hornets eliminated from playoff contention, coach Steve Clifford will play the kids – Noah Vonleh, P.J. Hairston and Troy Daniels – extensively in the last three games.
▪ It’s highly unlikely four injured veterans – Al Jefferson, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Cody Zeller and Lance Stephenson – will play again this season.
▪ Former Charlotte Bobcat Anthony Tolliver was a fill-in starter for the Pistons when Greg Monroe was injured.
▪ Pistons center Andre Drummond has 46 double-doubles this season, third in the NBA behind Pau Gasol and DeMarcus Cousins.
