Ellis tweeted that Wood missed a defensive assignment and then rode the bench the rest of the night.

Not a big shocker, his defense was pretty soft in preseason too.

Ah, OK.  In that event, I like it.  Set the tone early.

I'm surprised Wood barely got any time.  Morris/Maker weren't really tearing things up out there.

Wood came in and looked lost. Casey yanked him and didn't go back to him.

Given how much Drummond played last night and that the team is travelling home for the B2B,  I think Wood will get another shot to get into the game tonight.

I would think Drummond shouldn't have to put the quantity of minutes in again (40), but hopefully the quality is a repeat.

Rather than Reggie playing a ton, I think Reggie/Rose/Frazier will divide minutes more equally.

I turned the game on just as the 4th started and was poised to watch the entire 4th...ended up flipping to the world series and forgot to flip back, I think it was 89-91 or something like that when I turned it off and never flipped back until it was already on Pistons live and they were talking about the game.  Great win for the boys!

Road win without your best player, against a divisional opponent that could be fighting for playoff positioning with you?

Good win for sure.

Yeah, under the circumstances, this was a pretty darn good win.  The never really pulled away until the end.  Had the lead for most of the game, but even when they were behind, it wasn't by much.

Eh, Griffin being out probably doesn't matter with Oladipo out.

Pretty much a wash.

True, but the Pistons had a healthy Jackson.

In a building that has been a snake pit for the team over the years. Good, and entirely unexpected, win.

Well, the Pistons with Griffin lost games (or was it game perhaps?) against them without Oladipo last season so this was an important win for the psyche of the group.

That is just a cliche people use.  Or else sweeping Toronto last year would have made this team invincible.

It is not a wash. Blake is more valuable to the Pistons than Oladipo is to the Pacers. And Indy spent the majority of last season without Oladipo. Their team is deeper and can absorb his loss much easier.

Not even. Jackson has a bad back, had it wrapped on the bench.
