Pistons shoot 6/27 and trail by 12 after 1

Only took 1 quarter to prove the bad chemistry between Drummond and Griffin last year was no fluke.

Pistons down 7 at the break. Really could use Stanley on the perimeter defensively. LeVert was killing us

Drummond getting dominated in the third. Just totally owned by Allen. Can’t do anything.

What is Drummond doing? Just totally destroyed this quarter. I think he’s about 0/8. Who came up with the idea for him to shoot threes? He can’t make layups.

Brooklyn up 10. Drummond didn’t show up tonight that’s for sure. Seen that movie a lot.

I bet Kelser would totally **** up Blaha's world if broadcasting chairs were messed with.

Drummond is 1/10. He took one three. He’s 1/9 from 5 feet away

5 of his next 9

 

EDIT: then he misses a bunny.

Six different times tonight the Pistons took a 1 or 2 point lead and Brooklyn immediately responded and took the lead right back. It happened literally every single time the Pistons took the lead. 

2 point loss in OT. Galloway had a great game. Brown showed some defensive potential. Drummond was a ghastly 6/21 from the floor. That’s incredible for a center that only took 1 shot from outside the paint. 6/20 from the paint!!! That’s astonishing. 

What was Atkinson doing for Brooklyn? You lose Crabbe to what appeared to be a nasty ankle sprain, yet you play your fragile, injury prone guards Russell and LeVert the entire fourth quarter and OT? They each played 35 minutes in a meaningless preseason game. 

Overall, the preseason doesn’t matter. Saw some positives. We actually ran an actual inbounds play that worked perfectly and we scored. Casey hasn’t coached a regular season gsme yet and he’s already done something SVG didn’t do in 4 years.

PG: Jackson, Ish, Calderon, Brown (GR)

SG: Bullock, Kennard, Galloway, Lofton (2 way) 

SF: Johnson, Robinson, Thomas (GR), Hearn (2 way)

PF: Griffin, Leuer, Ellenson 

C : Drummond, Zaza 

That’s my roster prediction. 15 guys plus 2 two way players. Assign the rooks to GR. That’s means the Pistons will have 4 guys getting minutes in GR. They may drop Hearn and add a big man on a 2 way. Lofton deserves a look.

It's kind of fun watching them let Drummond basically try anything and everything that has never been any part of his game though. Maybe a couple of things will eventually turn out to be adds. That little push shot from the top of the key looks like something he might be able to use.

Smart move.

Little Caesars Arena is changing its all-red seats to all black, on a permanent basis. Will do it in stages during the season, but black covers already on. Empty red seats apparently were more jarring, for Pistons and Wings.

Now all they will need to do is add a 9" high by  6" wide light tan oval somewhat randomly placed near the top of each seat back in which the seat number would be painted (in small characters). At  distance on camera they will look like faces. Game, set , match...

Why it gotta be light tan?

Has to be something the camera can see against a black seat back. Actually 15,000 fake faces in a random range of shades would be an awesome effect - but I was thinking cheap initially.....

I know they wouldn't do it because it may deter people from buying expensive seats but they should just allow the people from the 200 level to move down if none of those seats are taken because even with the black seats you can tell when it's empty.

I am guessing that was sarcasm.
