Game notes: Not only is this the Pistons’ lone visit to the city where they won their second NBA championship. But it’s the first time Detroit will face Chauncey Billups as a head coach. This is Mr. Big Shot’s first season in the first chair in Portland. … Blazers were blown out in Utah on Monday night, 129-107. … Pistons won’t face Blazers star guard Damian Lillard (abdominal pain) or starting wing Norman Powell (quad contusion).
