It's business as usual for Pistons ahead of Josh Smith's odd homecoming

Jonas Jerebko hasn't seen enough of Marshawn Lynch's act to get the phrasing right, but that's where he was headed when he was asked about guarding Josh Smith Saturday night.

He shot 26 percent last year and took 265 triples...
