New and notes before tip-off:
*No changes to the Kings starting lineup. Chauncey Billups (knee) is out for Detroit. Rookie Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will start for Billups.
*Kings coach Michael Malone said he'll have to move DeMarcus Cousins to different spots on the floor to combat the various defense looks the Pistons might use.
Detroit can use Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond in the post to try to slow down Cousins, who is averaging 22.3 points, tops among centers.
*Prediction time: I really like Detroit's team. But they've lost four in a row and play Cousins, who has had good games against the Pistons.
I think the Kings win again.
Kings 101, Pistons 94
My record: 5-2
