Game Preview: Pistons look to stay undefeated against Bulls

The (1-0) Detroit Pistons head to Chicago to take on the Bulls (0-1), tip off at 8 pm

The Bulls look to bounce back from a tough loss against the 76ers 108-127. They hope to compete and come out with the win against a eastern conference opponent the Pistons.

They’ll look to have a big performance again from their young guard Zach Lavine, who got a big contract this off-season. He seems to have proven himself so far this season, despite it only being one game, he looked pretty good putting up 30 points. Another player to look forward to watching against this Pistons front court is Bobby Portis, this developing big man showed he plans on making a name for himself this year with last games 20 points 11 rebound performance.

The Pistons will look to bring more of the same as they try to move onto (2-0) to start the season. Guards Ish Smith and Reggie Jackson should have an easier job defensively than they did against the 6″6-6″7 guards of Brooklyn Caris Levert and Spencer Dinwiddie. One thing to look forward to will be the return of Stanley Johnson (Toe) and Reggie Bullock (flu). With both forwards returning, we should look forward to the usual line up defensively and our three point tally to be more towards the 40s like in the preseason.
