The Brooklyn Nets are at 1-3 this season coming off of a blowout loss at home to the Chicago Bulls. The Detroit Pistons are at 2-1 and coming off of a victory against the Milwaukee Bucks Sunday night. The Detroit Pistons were the lone team Brooklyn Nets defeated in the preseason 101-94.

Brooklyn Nets has set a franchise record in three-pointers shot in consecutive games. Brooklyn has shot over 30 three-point shots in every game this season. Monday night, though, the Nets only nailed five of the 31 threes they attempted.

Andre Drummond will give Brooklyn a lot of trouble. Brooklyn struggles down low and Drummond is an animal down low. Drummond averages 16.3 rebounds a game, which is insane. Will Brook Lopez and Trevor Booker be able to slow Drummond down and get some rebounds for themselves?

Jeremy Lin will have a solid point guard battle in this game. Ish Smith is averaging over seven assists a game which will keep Lin on his toes. Lin needs to be ready to steal the ball, which he has been successful in thus far shown by his four steals against Chicago the other night.

Brook Lopez and Jeremy Lin will need to play like they did against Indiana to win this game. Lopez needs to get rebounds and play good defense down low and Lin will need to make his shots and get others involved. They can easily do this, they just need to actually.

This will be a good game and the Nets could win this game. Brooklyn needs a bounce-back performance to get back on track and the Pistons are seemingly a good opponent to do that against. Detroit is not a great team but they are by no means a bad team either.
