The Pacers pick up preseason play on the road against the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday night.

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Preseason play continues for the Pacers on the road when they face the Detroit Pistons.

The Paul George to PF experiment should get another good look at Auburn Hills. With Greg Monroe in Milwaukee, the Pistons are also playing smaller with Ersan Ilyasova at PF while Andre Drummond moves to center.

The Pacers have more than one player, though and seeing something productive from Monta Ellis and George Hill would be a nice distraction from the small-ball chatter that has been a priority since the first game in Indy.
