Game 21: Thunder @ Pistons

Recommended Posts

This team still desperately needs a wing that can create his own offense. They have nobody like that and it isn’t even close.

Really don’t like Casey’s tendency to play the entire bench as a unit. Without Reggie, Blake,or Dre they struggle unless the defense can get stops to run in transition. 

OKC overplaying the pass like crazy and we have nobody that can drive to hoop and make them pay for it. Their athleticism is just way better. 

And Dre throws away another possession.

Drummond gets to play his dad Embiid on Friday and Monday. What’s the over/under on times Andre posts up and bricks a hook or takes a wild shot on a out of control drive?

OKC is playing pressure defense and the Pistons have nobody on the perimeter that can create offense.

Long term, pistons have to find a way to love Drummond. Guy doesnt get it.

What is Drummond doing?

Drummond isn’t good.  Pistons can’t think about really turning an organizational corner until he is gone.  

And langston taking running contested hooks aren’t what you want.

Being down 10 isn’t bad.  Blake could feet punched in the face and the refs wouldn’t call it.  Adams gets looked at and it’s a foul.

Lucky to be this close. Casey needs to earn his money and figure out some counters to the defensive pressure and double teaming.

That's the worst half of basketball they've played all season. It's a miracle that they aren't down by 30.

Andre has been generally good this season but when he sucks, my god does he suck bad. I could tell from the beginning that this was going to be Bad Andre night.  Ish needs to get more run, offense way too stagnant with Reggie

He's been good this season for the most part as long as it's not against Embiid. Not such a hot take by you.

I wish Dre had half the brains and a quarter of the grit that Adams has. 

OKC has established that this is how they play D and the refs seem ok with it. Pushing, grabbing, fouling, it’s all good. They’re forcing us into bad possession after bad possession.

Wow. Russ just shoves Jackson down. No call. Then Dre gets called for fouling someone with his face.

So Detroit gets called for letting the guy elbow you in the face. and a t for getting angry.

Anytime Drummond is faced with physical adversity he mentally falls apart to horrifying levels. He's just not a mentally strong player. Just think if he is your center in the playoffs. Just have someone get in his head by the end of the first quarter and he's toast for the rest of the series.

That was the Boston game all over again. Pistons on a hot streak and they get totally outclassed by an elite defense and a team that’s just better than us. 

13-8 through 21 games. We are at the quarter pole of the season. Will be interesting to see how bad Bullock’s ankle is. Pistons need to find a way to get some wins. This is a downright brutal 9 game stretch ahead of them. They’re home on the 23rd against the Hawks. Just gotta find a way to win a few before then. I hope this isn’t the start of a long losing skid to bring them back to brink of being out of the playoffs.
