Sixers-Pistons: 3 Storylines to Watch and How to Live Stream the Game

DETROIT - The Sixers are taking on the Pistons for their third matchup of the year, but this time, they'll be without Joel Embiid against Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond.

Embiid hadn't looked himself the past four games, capped off by a performance in Toronto that left him searching for answers and criticizing his own play.

With Embiid having played the fourth-most minutes in the NBA, Brett Brown has made the decision to rest him, citing fatigue over the past few games and a responsibility to preserve his health.

I've got a feeling Drummond was jumping for joy when he heard the news, and I'm sure he'll take advantage of not having to deal with Embiid tonight.

Between turnovers and offensive rebounds, the Sixers gave up 49 points to the Raptors on Wednesday night.
