Musical Starters. Head coach Jason Kidd said yesterday to expect a different lineup at tip-off tonight, and indeed the reported lineup tonight is completely different from the one we saw in Green Bay. In addition, Kidd said he plans to use a 12-man rotation in each game, meaning a few players will sit out each night. O.J. Mayo drew the short straw last night, but he's expected to see some time tonight. I would personally like to see him start next to Brandon Knight or Nate Wolters tonight, but either way, I'm very curious to see how he looks back on the court.
Pistons Season Preview. Rather than try to go through it myself, allow me to direct you to our SB Nation comrade for a comprehensive look at the Pistons' offseason moves and season outlook.
It's Been Sooooo Long.
If the Bucks win tonight, it would be their first "winning streak" since March 17th & March 19th of 2013.— Eric Buenning (@ericbuenning) October 9, 2014
