NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis
Pistons: Too young
Last season, the Pistons were among the worst teams in the league, finishing with the second-worst record in the East. They were vulnerable on both ends and it can be the case again. They are among the youngest teams and are amidst a long rebuilt, and unloading Jerami Grant only made them more inexperienced. They did acquire veteran sharpshooters Bojan Bogdanovic and Alec Burks, it will be up to Cade Cunningham to generate much of their offense. Killian Hayes is a terrific defender but needs to up his scoring. Saddiq Bey remains a strong long-range gunner but the team was too inefficient last season.
Grizzlies: High ceiling
Built through mostly high-yielding draft picks just like the current Warriors, the Grizzlies will enter the season with a lot of confidence after they had finished with an elite record last season. Memphis has a solid backcourt of athletic Ja Morant and sharpshooting Desmond Bane and once Jaren Jackson returns, they will be back to being an elite two-way squad as they also have an elite perimeter defender in Dillon Brooks. Steven Adams gives size while Brandon Clarke is an old-school slashing Forward. The expectations are high for the Grizzlies after they had defied them last season.

NBA Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks
Cade is a solid all-around player but will need to work on his efficiency which is not a huge issue for someone so young. He is one of the options for Star/Pro Player in the Dream11 NBA fantasy scenario.
Morant is one of the best players in the league and will be up for another big season in multiple areas.
Saddiq Bey (DET)
Bey is perhaps the best shooter on the team besides Bojan and he will be up for perhaps the biggest season of his young career.
Bane is an automatic bucket and not only can he shoot from deep but he is also an incredible driver to the rim.
Duren has shown immense rebounding potential and is going to bolster the paint production for the Pistons.
Dillon is an elite perimeter defender and can also shoot lights out from deep.
DET vs MEM LINEUP BALANCERS
- Jaden Ivey(DET): Rookie Ivey can generate offense in a lot of ways.

- Steven Adams(MEM): Adams remains an elite rebounder who fits well with the current Memphis squad.
- Santi Aldama(MEM): Aldama is the potential starter in the wake of Jaren Jackson’s injury.
