It seems like the Pistons always play a matinee game on Martin Luther King Jr Day.  A lot of games are played earlier than normal, but not all.

Not that I support the Pistons making a run at the playoffs but I am a bit intrigued by how things will play in the near future.  Derrick Rose is playing at a very high level and the Pistons are upping his minutes.  They won his first two games starting, one of them against a decent Boston team, and both on the road.  He makes everybody else in the rotation look a lot better all the sudden.  The schedule is very soft the next 6 games, including two against Brooklyn, the team ahead of the Pistons in the standings.  You could see the Pistons go on a pretty good run here.  And while I don't think they are a threat to win a playoff series or anything, I do think this team is more fun to watch and quite a bit better than last year's team that was basically in the same position...as long as Derrick Rose continues to do what he is doing.  

I actually am a little bummed I will miss this afternoon game tomorrow.

The Pistons have lost their last 9 trips to Washington D.C. January 18 of 2014 was their last win there. 

Always seems like they play like **** in afternoon games. Especially Andre. 

Washington always seems to torch us. So I am thinking this will be an L. Especially on the last leg of a road trip.

I always though MLK games were at home.  Didn't they used to have kids day at this game?  There would always be some brat on the broadcast.

Why Casey allows Drummond the freedom he has offensively blows my mind. I watch a lot of NBA basketball and Andre commits the most ridiculous elementary school-level turnovers. 

Tim Frazier is absolutely awful. 

Svi is looking like a rotation player. Same with Wood. Brown has made some progress offensively. His defense remains solid. Snell can shoot but provides nothing else.

How does a C get 5 TO's in a half?

10 in a row in Washington. That’s pretty amazing considering Washington really hasn’t been any good.

Mahimi becomes the latest center to have a career game against the Pistons. Dude made a couple triples today.

Just looked at the box score.  Drummond had 9 turnovers...9 turnovers!  How do you get 9 turnovers when Derrick Rose dominates the ball?  I agree some of that has to be on Casey.

Whatever else may have been wrong about SVG, and a lot was, hard to argue he didn't have a better handle on Andre.

I assume this is 90% scary lawyer language.

 

lets change that last part to read: "our focus is on getting him and us - not necessarily in that order - as much money as possible."

but seriously, sounds like a terrible accident and i hope parsons is ok.

The Pistons like to please everyone.

Win just enough to keep the 8th seed in sight.  But probably never reach it.

Lose just enough to keep a top 3 pick in sight.  But probably never reach it.
