The day after the Golden State game, Jordan Bellant and Ben Gulker are joined by frequent Detroit Bad Boys contributor Ben Quagliata. The Aussie brings his quick wit and analysis to an episode that reflects on the Pistons' early successes. The podcast begins with a review of the road trip. So far, the Pistons are 2-1, including a dramatic finish against the Portland Trail Blazers. Where were you when the Pistons went on a 24-0 run? The guys reflect on the game and put the big win in perspective. Things are kept in perspective when the Bens and Jordan consider the bench struggles and the team's performance against Golden State.
While discussing the games, the three guys rejoice in the play of big man Andre Drummond. Is this what the breakout season looks like? Ben asks if Andre is even a finished product after winning Eastern Conference Player of the Week for the second straight week.
Then, a quick preview of the rest of the west coast swing comes just before the game with the Sacramento Kings. What will the Pistons record be when they return home to face the Cavaliers on November 17th?
Finally, a new segment of the podcast closes out this episode. It's time to open the mailbag and answer fan questions submitted through DetroitBadBoys.com and Twitter. Using the hashtag "#AskDBB" the guys answer questions on the return of Brandon Jennings, Andre's attitude, and what it means to play Stan Van Gundy basketball.
