So the Heat, Nets, Hornets, Pistons and Pacers all are dealing with significant injury issues, while Celtics are trading everyone. The East!
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.
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
Last time the Pistons scored 68 points? Feb 28, 2012 against...the Philadelphia 76ers. The L. Frank era
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)
Kyrie Irving scored 14 less points than the Pistons tonight. Kyrie: 55. Detroit: 69 in a loss to Philly.
SVG used the words "embarrassing" and "humiliating" to describe the Pistons effort tonight
The Pistons keep going like this, Jennings' agent is gonna walk in for negotiations rocking a boombox playing Kanye's "Power"
New name for the Pistons' perimeter players: "Self Check"
The Pistons will lose this game, likely because they can't make post-entry passes. That means a lot when you can't shoot
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
SVG said the Pistons have problems getting the ball to Monroe. Tonight is a clear illustration why
Drummond just picked up his third foul for Pistons
Philly has never had a 20-point lead in a game all year. But it took them less than 7 minutes to get one against the Pistons
Quick recap of Sixers-Pistons so far. http://t.co/4qpgdYCdtt
Well, the Sixers are up 24-4 so this no-Jennings era isn’t going great for the Pistons.
