From SBNation's Blazer's Edge:
The Pistons' recipe for winning is simple. If they score 100 or more their record is a relatively-decent-looking 15-8 (leaving them 8-36 when they fail to reach triple digits). The problem is, they can't do it. They're 23rd in the league in scoring at 94.4 per game. They meld the crippling combination of a slow pace and inefficient offense into an amalgam of futility. They can score in the paint when center Greg Monroe decides to go inside or grab an offensive rebound (though about a third of his shots are jumpers). They've got one good three-point shooter in Jose Calderon. They do well in transition when they can manage to run. After that they're utterly unremarkable.
