07:32 AM ET 12.13 | The examples are right in front of his face. The Nets' Deron Williams is next. After that is the Blazers' Damian Lillard. These are the next standout point guards the Pistons will face as they try to end a three-game losing streak during a two-game home stand. And it's safe to say the Nets ([Friday's] opponent) and the Blazers (Sunday's) will attack Pistons point guard Brandon Jennings until he stands up better against dribble penetration. Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks pretty much said it Wednesday night before his team lost to the Pelicans in overtime, 111-106. He was asked whether he would consider using rookie defender Kentavious Caldwell-Pope when struggling to defend point guards and "hide" Jennings. He scoffed. "I don't want that word 'hiding,'" Cheeks said.
