Smith added four rebounds, four blocks, two steals and one assist in the loss.

He made his lone three-point attempt and went 3 for 4 at the free-throw line, while adding three rebounds, three assists and three blocks. He also turned the ball over four times, while adding a steal of his own.

Smith has picked up his scoring since a slow start, and is now averaging a season-best 18.5 points, 8.1 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game in the month of February.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope a potential starter


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2013) The Detroit Free Press took a stab at projecting the Pistons' starting lineup Monday, more than two months before the start of the regular season. And it looks like Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, the No. 8 overall pick in this summer's draft, could begin his career as a starter.

Caldwell-Pope was listed as a first-team shooting guard, as the team will really need some shooting in a starting lineup that essentially features two power forwards and a center, none of whom have a reliable jump shot. Brandon Jennings, Josh Smith, Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe fill out the rest of the projected starters. 

Caldwell-Pope could fit in as a floor spacer, after making 37.3 percent of his 3-pointers as a sophomore at Georgia, while attempting more than seven per game. Caldwell-Pope's main competitor for the spot will be veteran Chauncey Billups, another dead-eye shooter who has nonetheless proven liable to break down at the age of 36.
