Van Gundy, Jackson Ready For Grizzlies


The Detroit Pistons (12-10) host the Memphis Grizzlies (12-10) tonight at the Palace of Auburn Hills.  The Pistons had won four in a row -- all at home -- before falling Monday in Charlotte.  

"Players bounce back quicker than coaches, they have to,"  Pistons Head Coach Stan Van Gundy said.  "We've bounced back pretty well all year."

The Pistons are 8-2 at home this season.  

"We need more consistency,"  Van Gundy added.  "We still can get a lot better."

Pistons Eastern Conference Player of the Week, Reggie Jackson, is happy to be home after scoring a season low four points Monday night.  Four of the next five are at home for the Pistons, which is a good thing since they have lost eight of nine on the road.  

"I got to be better.  Night in, night out,"  Jackson said.  Definitely didn't have an acceptable game last game.  Not putting the blame on anybody else...we all have to be aggressive and be stars within our roles and do what it take for this thing to run smoothly.

The Pistons tip at 7:30pm tonight.
