Charlotte Bobcats at the Detroit Pistons: Game 33 Preview

Coming off a tough loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Bobcats will look to rebound against a 13-22 Detroit Pistons team. The Bobcats want to avoid another losing streak by winning on Sunday.

The Pistons have been playing well of late winning their last four games. The Bobcats will need to look out for Greg Monroe, who leads the team with 15.3 ppg and 8.9 rpg. Monroe is the anchor of this Pistons team, and is their primary post presence.

Austin Daye, a bench player who has been inserted into the rotation as of late, has been playing lights out of late in the last seven games, and dropped 20 points against the Hawks the other night.

Brandon Knight also continues to play well, and is averaging 4.6 apg this year. Knight is continuing to learn how to play point guard at the NBA level, and he seems to be improving every game.

For the Bobcats, Kemba Walker should be fresh considering he sat out the entire fourth quarter on Friday. Ben Gordon is coming off a 27 point performance, and the Bobcats need him to stay hot.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist came off the bench against the Cavaliers, and had a nice game filling up the stat sheet. It will be interesting to see what Coach Dunlap does with the starting lineup on Sunday, and how he divides up the minutes among the starters and bench players.

The Bobcats face the Pistons at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday.
