Detroit played their first game of the season where their starting line-up had some logic in it. For the first time Monroe played most of the minutes at the C position and Josh Smith was their PF for the biggest part of the game. Drummond received around 20 minutes and he finally served as an backup for Detroit starting game. This resulted with a win for the Pistons and not only that, the team looked good after a longer period. It looks like chemistry is pumping in motor city and we should expect more wins in forthcoming games. As a play of the game we present this Josh Smith block on David West in the final seconds of the game.
