Follow me on twitter: @a_santiago1517 Pistons vs. Nets The Brooklyn Nets will make their preseason home debut tonight against the Detroit Pistons. The Pistons, who made several moves to bring in talented players, will put them on the court to start the game tonight as will the Nets with the exception of Deron Williams who continues to nurse an injury. The Nets are 1-0 after a thrilling win in overtime against the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night. The bench players played exceptionally well throughout the course of the game, especially Andrei Kirilenko. The Nets will host the Pistons tonight at the Barclays at 7:30 p.m. ET. Keep a look out for the bench players as they come in relief for the starters who will most likely not play more than twelve minutes as they did last game. The Nets have a deep bench without a doubt, but how well do they play together? We saw some good chemistry on Tuesday, but can we see it on a constant basis? Tip off is at 7:30 p.m. at the Barclays Center. Probable Starters: Brooklyn Nets                   Shaun Livingston                        Joe Johnson        Kevin Garnett                    Brook Lopez           Paul Pierce   Probable Starters: Detroit Pistons                      Will Bynum                         Kyle Singer        Greg Monroe                 Andre Drummond           Josh Smith – Thanks for reading!     The post Preseason Game 2 Preview: Pistons at Nets appeared first on UTSN - The Universal Takeover Sports Network.
