Jonathan Feigen

Josh Smith heads to Detroit with 18p, 6r and 15p, 10r in his past 2 gms. Of Pistons said, "They’re friends. I don’t have anything to prove."

Ben Rohrbach

Josh Smith says "I have nothing to prove" in return to Detroit tomorrow night, but admits a win over the Pistons would be that much sweeter.

SVG again reiterated the Pistons didn't want to give up an asset to fill a spot. And a 2nd rd pick in the near future, he considers an asset

Vincent Goodwill

Apparently taking on Granger's $2.1M next year would be too much for the Pistons.

Vincent Goodwill

For the Pistons' interest in Norris Cole: That was predicated, at least in early form, on taking on Danny Granger and the 2nd yr on his deal

Ira Winderman

Based on 'Wolves reports, Pistons need: How about Cole (and a minimum salary) to Detroit, Mo Williams to Heat, pair 2nd-rounders to Wolves?

Dave Pemberton

#Heat at #Pistons Tuesday will air on NBA TV as part of the network's Fan Night.

David Mayo

#Pistons Brandon Jennings expected to return to Detroit early next week. Had surgery Monday (torn left Achilles).

David Mayo

#Pistons clearly looking trade first, D-League backup plan, for 3rd PG. SVG now says Monday earliest, keeps delaying deadline.

Lang Greene

Pistons forward Jonas Jerebko, a free agent this summer, says he has no plans to pursue an overseas deal basketballinsiders.com/nba-am-jerebko…

David Mayo

Asked SVG the other day if #Pistons would sag off J-Smoove and give him the 3. He wouldn't give specific answer.

#Pistons game Tuesday vs. #Heat added to NBA TV schedule.

#Sixers Brown: Mbah a Moute's ability to defend all positions allowed coach to go small vs #Pistons big front line.

Tim Bontemps

So the Heat, Nets, Hornets, Pistons and Pacers all are dealing with significant injury issues, while Celtics are trading everyone. The East!

Tommy Beer

The Detroit Pistons (at 17-30) are only 2.5 games back of 8th seed in the East. OKC Thunder (23-23) are 3 games behind 8th spot out West.

Vincent Goodwill

Starting to wonder if the Pistons need to change their style. Since they can't shoot, work the ball inside to Monroe more. Slow it down

Vincent Goodwill

Last time the Pistons scored 68 points? Feb 28, 2012 against...the Philadelphia 76ers. The L. Frank era

Vincent Goodwill

How bad was tonight? The Pistons shot 30 percent from the field, the first time since Dec. 09 in a 94-64 loss to Toronto (28 percent)

Tas Melas

Kyrie Irving scored 14 less points than the Pistons tonight. Kyrie: 55. Detroit: 69 in a loss to Philly.

Vincent Goodwill

SVG used the words "embarrassing" and "humiliating" to describe the Pistons effort tonight

Tom Moore

#Sixers' 20-point margin of victory over #Pistons was largest of season, surpassing 15 on Jan. 16 vs. Anthony Davis-less Pelicans. #76ers

Keith Pompey

#Pistons might want to stop shooting Bricks ... oh I mean 3s. They are 1-for-16 on 3s and trail 70-59 w/ 8:19 to play

Vincent Goodwill

The Pistons keep going like this, Jennings' agent is gonna walk in for negotiations rocking a boombox playing Kanye's "Power"

Vincent Goodwill

New name for the Pistons' perimeter players: "Self Check"

Vincent Goodwill

The Pistons will lose this game, likely because they can't make post-entry passes. That means a lot when you can't shoot

Keith Pompey

#Pistons within nine (59-50) again after Jerebko basket with 6:19 left in third.

Vincent Goodwill

Jonas giving the Pistons a spark here. Jumper cuts the lead to 9. Drummond with 4 fouls, can't have an impact on the game from the bench

Vincent Ellis

Jerebko like get on my back. Baseline jumper gets #Pistons back within 9. The Swede has 10.

Vincent Goodwill

SVG said the Pistons have problems getting the ball to Monroe. Tonight is a clear illustration why

Keith Pompey

Oh, boy for #Sixers fan. Once down by 20 points, the #Pistons are within nine,

Bob Cooney

Monroe ends half with layup and pulls Pistons to 48-37 at half. He has 13 and 8 boards. Covington and Sampson each with 7 for #Sixers

David Mayo

Monroe's interior basket with :00.4 left avoids #Pistons lowest-scoring half this season (36). #Sixers 48-37 at the break.
