LOS ANGELES -- Defense will probably dictate when the Detroit Pistons tangle with the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night at Staples Center. Jaleel Johnson Jersey .Both clubs rank among the NBAs best in defending. The Clippers lead the league in scoring defense, limiting opponents to 90.7 points per game, while producing 102.7 per outing.The Pistons are second to Los Angeles in scoring defense at 93 points per game, while averaging 100.5 points per game.Clippers point guard Chris Paul tops the NBA in steals at 3.5 per game.As a team, Los Angeles is the leader in steals with an average of 10 per game.Detroit has one of the games top defenders in the middle with center Andre Drummond, who is averaging 14.7 boards. And, the Pistons are the fifth-best rebounding club in the NBA at 47.3 per game. The Clippers are rank 11th at 45.2. Both teams are averaging 10.2 boards on the offensive end.But it isnt all about defense with the Pistons (4-2), who earned a 103-86 win over the Denver Nuggets on Saturday in a game Drummond had 19 points and 20 rebounds. Tobias Harris has been a sparkplug offensively, leading the Pistons at 18.8 points per game.Hes a very mature guy and hes very professional in his approach, Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said, according to Pistons.com. Hes a guy whos always looking to get better. He looks at his game realistically. He figures out where he needs to improve and he works on it. Hes not an excuse guy. Its not outside forces and everything else.Van Gundy also praised Pistons forward Marcus Morris, who is scoring at a 17.5 points per game clip.Marcus is the same way (as Harris), Van Gundy said. Its one of the reasons those guys play well. Theyre willing to look at their performances realistically and make improvements rather than blaming everything and everyone else.The Clippers (5-1) return home after a successful two-game stretch on the road, where they have compiled a 3-0 mark this season. They are tied with Oklahoma City atop of the Western Conference, their lone loss being to the Thunder last week.Los Angeles recorded wins over the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday and rolled past the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday behind the performance of Blake Griffin, who scored 26 of his 28 points in the first half en route to a 116-92 romp.Its nice to have those easy looks go down, said Griffin, who shot 13-for-19 from the floor, according to the Los Angeles Times. It just kind of builds your confidence.Griffin, though, couldnt resist crediting the Clippers defensive performance for being the difference against the Spurs. After all, defense is the top priority of Clippers coach Doc Rivers, who preaches it practically every time he opens his mouth.It starts with defense, Griffin said, according to Clippers.com. I know we always say that, but it really does.Said Rivers, Thats two nights in a row that weve had great pace, and our defense has been as good as Ive seen it. Our hands are everywhere right now, and thats a good sign. Pat Elflein Jersey . -- Matt Ryan needed one of the best games of his career to lead the Falcons and their depleted offence out of their three-game losing streak last week. Ben Gedeon Womens Jersey . Tomas Berdych and Radek Stepanek defeated Nenad Zimonjic and Ilija Bozoljac 6-2, 6-4, 7-6 (4) on the indoor hard-court at Belgrade Arena. The victory improved the Czech pairs impressive cup doubles record to 14-1. http:///...leel-Johnson-Jersey/ . They had already blown a double-digit lead, fans were hitting the exits, and a long seven-game road trip waited at the end.That familiar bell toll will be heard on Tuesdays 900th episode of WWE Smackdown when The Undertaker makes his return. The Phenom has been absent from WWE television since defeating Shane McMahon in a hard-hitting Hell in a Cell Match at WrestleMania 32 in April.But he will make a special appearance on a landmark episode of the blue brand, a show you can catch live on Sports 5 at 1am (Wednesday morning). Live WWE: Late Night - Smackdown November 16, 2016, 1:00am Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Ahead of his comeback, we look at what The Deadman may have planned…Compete in the ringThe Undertaker wrestled on the first episode of Smackdown - The Phenom teaming with Triple H to take on The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin in April 1999 - while he has also fought on many of the brands milestone shows, including on edition No 500 against John Bradshaw Layfield. Will The Undertaker wrestle on this weeks Smackdown? Therefore, it would be fitting if Taker dusted of his wrestling garb in Pennsylvania this week. Smackdown fans will be crying out for it, too, as it has been well over three years since he last wrestled on the show - the veteran overcoming Dean Ambrose at Londons O2 Arena in April 2013. Take out that match and Takers last bout in a Smackdown ring was against CM Punk, way back in October 2010 in Oklahoma.Team with KanePrior to his clash with McMahon at The Show of Shows this spring, Undertakers previous WWE contest came a year ago at the 2015 edition of Survivor Series, as he banded with half-brother Kane to defeat Bray Wyatt and The Eater of Worlds minion, Luke Harper. Kane has had his issues with Wyatt and Harper of late, too, as well as Randy Orton, who appears to have become fully embedded in The Wyatt Family. WWE Rewind: Survivor Series 2015 Kane and The Undertaker defeated The Wyatt Family Perhaps its time for Kane and his fellow Brother of Destruction, Undertaker, to join forces and put The Wyatts in their place again? Yet, could they instead challenge Smackdown Tag Team Champions, Heath Slater and Rhyno, and aim for their fourth title reign as a duo?Fight KaneUndertaker and Kanes relationship is somewhat akin to the one shared by former Oasis siblings Liam and Noel Gallagher - they have their good moments but there are plenty of bust-ups, too. The Phenom and The Big Red Monster have seen eye-to-eye for a while now, with their last match against each other coming at the Bragging Rights pay-per-views in 2010 when The Nexus helped Kane beat The Undertaker in a Buried Alive match to retain the World Heavyweight Championship. Kane is also set to appear on Smackdowns 900th episode It would, however, not take much for animosity to build between the brothers, something that could perhaps set up a third WrestleMania showdown between the two, following Takers wins in 1998 and 2004.Mix it with McMahonWhile Takers whereabouts since WrestleMania are unknown - besides when he met up with Cleveland Cavaliers to help the basketball outfit celebrate their winning first NBA Title - Shane McMahon has been a key figure on Tuesday nights in his job as Smackdown Commissioner. McMahon on Team Smackdown Blue-brand Commissioner to wrestle at Survivor Series The 46-year-old will put the match-making to one side at Suurvivor Series on Sunday when he wrestles for his brand against Team Raw, something he will surely address when he guests on Tuesdays episode of The Cutting Edge, hosted, of course, by WWE Hall of Famer Edge. Dalvin Cook Vikings Jersey. Could The Undertaker appear on the show, too, to give McMahon some words of encouragement - or even challenge him to a tune-up match?Add himself into Survivor SeriesThe Undertakers in-ring debut for WWE came at Survivor Series in 1990, The Phenom making his mark by eliminating Koko. B Ware and Dusty Rhodes. The WWE legend has gone on to make a record 18 Survivor Series appearances - one more than Shawn Michaels - and landed 13 wins, including beating Hulk Hogan to win his first WWE Title in 1991. The Undertaker defeated Hulk Hogan on his second appearance at Survivor Series So if he fancies another bout at WWEs Fall Classic, no-one is really going to say no - even if the list of potential opponents has shortened with Brock Lesnar and Goldberg facing each other and most of the companys other top names competing in the evenings Raw versus Smackdown tussles.What do you think The Undertaker will do on Smackdowns 900th episode?
