The Brooklyn Nets (5-3) are on the road to take on No. 1 overall pick Cade Cunningham and the Pistons

The Brooklyn Nets are getting an early look at the crowned jewel of the 2021 NBA Draft, Cade Cunningham missed their last game on Sunday, but he’s in the lineup tonight. The Nets can’t take the Pistons lightly, but this game is a mismatch.

Kevin Durant is reasserting himself as the best player on the planet. He looked like the best player in the world last season, but he’s taking his game to another level. The Pistons are going to have their work cut out for them defensively.

Let’s take a look at everything you need to know for this Nets-Pistons matchup including broadcast information, odds, injury report, and projected starting lineups.
