You knew the point guard transition was going to be rocky in Detroit after the Pistons traded away their NBA Finals MVP Chauncey Billups. But even with a new No. 1 in town, coach Michael Curry had to make some modifications.

It appears one of those adjustments is having Tayshaun Prince initiate the offense; playing the role of point forward while AI and Rip work the wings.

“Tay is going to facilitate some of our offense,” Curry said after the Pistons’ two-hour practice at Arco Arena Monday. “He will get into it with Allen handing it off to Tay. And there are other sets that Tay will start himself.”

In their last three games, Prince has averaged 23 points per contest. Will the additional ball-handling responsibilities slow him down?
