2017 Playoff Race

Recommended Posts

 Detroit and Portland have been compared a lot this year as disappointments. Not anymore.

Portland is finishing strong having won 12 of their last 15. While Detroit has been getting bombed by lottery teams.

And Nurkic, making a fraction of what Drummond is making, is dominating.

I was begging SVG to not sign that contract. Damn

Still have my concerns about the long-term fit of Dame and CJ together.

Wall/Beal and Curry/Klay can co-exist because Wall and Klay play D.

CJ doesn't play D and he's the better defender, lol.

It will be interesting to see what happens in Portland.  Nurkic was such a great pickup.

So my question to Deleterious and you other Basketball followers we have on the board is this, If Pistons fail to make the playoffs, and finish in the 6-8 seed area next season and are bounced in the playoffs in 1st round can we start the SVG watch?

Too many variables to answer that.

Is this east still this bad?  Did they get swept or was it 7 games?  

Me personally, I think you should have home court in the first round in year 4 of your rebuild.

Charlotte is 9-2 in their last 11 and now sit one game back of the 8th seed.  

Meanwhile, the Pistons are 2-9 in that same span.

If they had just gone a measly .500 in that time frame, they would be the 7th seed pushing for the 5th or 6th seed.

Hadn't Charlotte been in a 2-9 tailspin right before that?  Talk about a roller coaster end of the season.

Bucks getting thrashed by a pretty mediocre OKC team and the Bulls getting beaten by double digits by the hapless Knicks.  Who was it that was arguing with me about the east being deeper this year around the all star break?  What a joke of a conference.  Will probably be one of the worst 1st rounds in years.  2nd round and beyond should be interesting though with the rise of the Celtics and the Wizards but the bottom 4 playoff seeds?  WOOF

When you start setting perameters like this, I feel like that is a sign he has already failed.  It's like what Michigan fans used to with Hoke when the team was no longer moving in a positive direction.  Or what Lions fans do with every crappy coach they hire.  When there is very little evidence things are on the right track, the talk turns to where the team should be in the standings for the coach to save his job.

SVG:
"I probably should have done it earlier"
"We probably should have been searching for alternatives before."
"We will try to work our rotations so they’re out there with those other guys and see how they fit in the picture"

when your regular rotation leads you to 35 wins, you just dont want to mess with that kind of success.

Can Ellenson give you what Leuer gave us this year? If so, I'd ship him off for some salary relief. 

Definitely had that thought last night
