The Detroit Pistons were a team many pundits were touting as a surprise team in the Eastern Conference. The club is off to a 4-1 start to the season. They opened up this west coast road trip on Friday by traveling to Phoenix and coming away with the 100-92 victory as a +4 ½ point underdog. It was a 50% shooting game for Detroit in the victory. The team has a new look with guard Reggie Jackson, forward Marcus Morris and shooting forward Ersan Ilyasova in the rotation. They added veteran point guard Steve Blake to the bench. In the victory on Friday guard Andre Drummond had a huge game with 12 points and 17 rebounds. Drummond in media circles is being regarded as the best big man in the NBA. He averages 18.6 points and an amazing 19 rebounds per game on the year. Head coach Stan Van Gundy did a good job of getting production from Dwight Howard. Van Gundy has a good knack of motivating big men. He is doing the same thing with Drummond.

The Portland Trailblazers suffered through some heavy rotational turnover as many free agents on their starting rotation left for other teams. They are off to a 4-2 start to the year and have won three straight after a 115-96 home victory to Memphis on Thursday night. Trailblazers had a hot shooting night in the win by hitting on 50% from the floor and 15 of 30 from three.
