Small sample size or not, the Pistons — 13-6 after Monday’s 118-108 win over the Celtics — look legit. Detroit’s offense has leaped into the NBA’s top 10 while Andre Drummond’s improved free-throw shooting — and more consistent effort — has given Van Gundy a new weapon to use in the fourth quarter. The inconsistency that plagued Detroit last season has evaporated. “Last year we put so much pressure on ourselves,” said guard Reggie Jackson. “We were looking to the top of the mountain without worrying about each and every step. This year, having some new faces, some new life in the locker room, we’re taking a more day-by-day approach, rather than worrying about the end goal. Once we get to the end of the season, we will be where we want to be.”
Reggie Jackson downplayed the significance of going against his former team – before the game. But after the Detroit Pistons pulled off a 99-98 escape against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday, the Pistons point guard admitted the evening was a touch more special than a normal victory. “It was definitely special because I haven’t won in this building – except for playing here and being on this team, but I hadn’t won in this building with this team,” Jackson said in the visitor’s locker room at Energy Solutions Arena on Friday night. “It’s good to get a team win like that and have these guys’ backs and find a way to get one is special.”
