'It's good and bad': Pistons waste little time getting their fill of Pacers

If both teams are vying for a playoff spot, it’s a potential tiebreaker that the Pistons could claim ahead of their final regular-season meeting on Dec. 6 at Little Caesars Arena.

We have to come out with a mindset of playing hard and we did (in the season opener),” coach Dwane Casey said after Friday’s shootaround at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Both teams have been without key pieces in the three meetings: Blake Griffin and the Pacers’ Victor Oladipo have yet to play a game this season.

The Pacers didn’t have center Myles Turner or guards Jeremy Lamb and Edmond Sumner (Detroit Country Day).

Rookie Sekou Doumbouya was set to make his debut with the Grand Rapids Drive in the G-League, on the road in Toronto against the Raptors 905.
