Game 66: Pistons @ Nets

Recommended Posts

7:40 tip. 

Pistons are 5-4 on zero days rest this year. 

The Nets have been an absolute thorn in our side recently. Intense, grueling 48 minute games.

13-18 on the road as well.

This is a tough game on a B2B against BKN. It was good that the starters got rest in the 4th quarter yesterday, but I am concerned about this game.

Blake beat twice in a row then gets his pocket picked. It’s game time, get your head in it. Brooklyn coming out with energy and overplaying everything.

Offense starts slow every game.  We should be starting Kennard.  But if not Kennard, then Galloway.  We are always playing from behind the first half.

Got 4 bench guys in already.  Quicker than usual it seems.

Nets forcing us into bad shots. Lots of long twos and contested shots. Preview of what will happen in the playoffs when teams step up the defensive intensity and stop you from getting to your spots. So far, we aren’t handling it well.

We have been giving up just a ton of open threes lately.

Zaza is back.  Leuer back to no spot in the rotation.  As much as I love over how our bench has been playing lately, I get nervous about our backup bigs.

Please stop sitting both Blake and Dre at the same time. Please. 

Yeah...this is horrible.  But honestly, I am not sure it would make a difference tonight because the whole team is playing poorly.

The Nets should be up by 20 right now.

28 points with only 4 minutes to go in the half.  Ugly, ugly, ugly.

This is my big worry with this team with yet another slow start. They can do that against the Bulls and Wolves, not against playoff level teams

Blake has looked bad on defense today. He just looks like he’s still on the plane. So does the rest of the team, of course, but the star has to lead.

Exactly...it's going to bite us at some point.

It's just careless basketball.  Passes at peoples feet.  Passes off somebody's back.  Passes that get deflected.  And we don't have the defense to make up for it.

Embarrassing.  It will be a miracle if we can pull another comeback off.
