Recommended Posts

7:10 tip. Pistons and Heat have had some battles over the years. Let's see if we can make some jumpers.

Dragic will play, Whiteside is out.

Dragic has crushed us recently. Jackson "defending" him is usually comical and Ish is just too small/skinny.

I still have a hard time with SVG, who was so obsessed with defense, but handed Jackson 5/80. He's an atrocious defender and even was before the injury. SVG would play Stanley 36 minutes a game for defense but somehow thought to give Jackson that contract?

He was absolutely awful here and we are paying for it.

Piston-killer James Johnson out for Miami. Bullock remains out. 

Pistons need this one. Will be fighting with Miami all season for a playoff spot.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one- Pistons start off atrocious on both ends. 

12-3 Heat.

Stanley off the bench, but Brown is not NBA ready. Pistons desperately miss Bullock and Kennard. 

Andre non-existent against a backup.

there were two big questions created by the Griffen trade - could he stay healthy, and could he and Drummond play together. Early returns on the 2nd are not good.

The biggest issue is the rest of the team. Griffin and Drummond are by far their best 2 players. The rest of their roster isn’t good.

Pistons 20-2 run halted with a Miami surge against 5 Piston bench players. Without Bullock and Kennard, DC has to shuffle rotations better than that.

Pistons just missing a lot of shots yet again. 

Dragic with the off hand right to the face of Calderon and no call. 

Galloway due 14 million this year and next. And he’s sitting in favor of Jose Calderon.

Tied at the half. 

Stanley with a solid -14 in 9 minutes. Just a really bad player. I’ve tried to defend him but there’s no way you can pay him 5 million dollars next season and beyond. If he turns it around and becomes a stud elsewhere, so be it. Let him go. He’s horrible.

Stanley Johnson is worse than Donald trump. 

Nobody is worse than Donald "Lying-MF'er-in-Chief" Trump.

Pistons getting looks but throwing up bricks. Miami is the better team. I’d be very surprised if the Pistons make the playoffs with this current roster. Just a bad team outside Blake.

SVG destroyed this franchise. Dumars left with a poor team but they were in good financial shape outside Smith. SVG whiffed horribly on Johnson and signed multiple albatross contracts.
