This may seem like a curious pick as the New Orleans Hornets are far from a good team. But this slideshow is titled the "five must-see" games, not necessarily the five most important.
This game is a must-see for one reason, the matchup between Anthony Davis and Andre Drummond.
Davis was the first overall pick in last year's draft and was the consensus amongst most draft watchers as well. He is athletic, long and shows tremendous instincts on the defensive end. Sure, he never figured out how to use tweezers, but I won't hold that against him.
Drummond (along with Portland Trail Blazers' point guard Damian Lillard) has shown that there should have at least been some discussion about this pick.
As of right now, Davis has slightly better numbers than Drummond despite playing a much more prolific role in New Orleans than Drummond has played in Detroit.
That being said, if you extend the minutes out to 36 per game, you see a much different picture. Per 36, Drummond is averaging over 13 points, 13 rebounds and nearly three blocks per game.
Davis is averaging about three points more per 36 than Drummond but with over three fewer rebounds and half a block less.
There is no doubt that Davis is going to be a very good player in this league and maybe even a star. But Drummond could develop into a superstar if the Pistons develop him right.
This should be a fun matchup to watch and for years to come.
