ON THE PISTONS: What we’ve learned so far: Cade Cunningham belongs

Game notes: It’s a battle of the No. 1 pick and the No. 2 pick, or if you look at it another way, two of the three worst teams in the NBA. For both, this is their only nationally televised game as they work through rebuilds. … Cade Cunningham (averaging 10.8 points on 23.2% shooting in four games, with 5.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists with 3.3 turnovers) and the Pistons have enjoyed four days off after falling short of a comeback vs. Brooklyn. Cunningham had 17 points to lead the team in a 96-90 loss.

The Rockets have been hard-luck losers, dropping three of their last four by a single possession. The team’s only win, Oct. 22 at home vs. rebuilding Oklahoma City, feels like eons ago. But Pistons castoff Christian Wood is having a solid season, with 17.5 points and 11.8 rebounds a game. Jalen Green, whom the Pistons passed on to take Cunningham, has been entertaining and inconsistent — as rookies tend to be. The 19-year-old is averaging 13.6 points, 3.1 rebounds, three assists and 2.9 turnovers, shooting 35.3% overall and 28.6% from 3 (20-for-70) in 10 games. He already has a 24-point game and a 30-point performance with 8 3s this season.

Green blasted the city of Detroit after the draft, comparing it to the ‘G League bubble.’ … This is the first of three road games in four nights for the Pistons, where they will face the No. 2-4 picks in the draft. Friday they’ll face Evan Mobley and Cleveland; Saturday will be Scottie Barnes and Toronto.
