Seems Stan Van Gundy wasn't feeling too swayed by the Christmas spirit when scheduling the next Pistons practice:
And SVG is being the Grinch ... planning to practice on Xmas Eve. I believe that's a 1st for SVG to schedule practice after back-to-back.— Vincent Ellis (@Vincent_Ellis56) December 24, 2015
SVG said he left it to the players. Asked did they want to practice Christmas Eve or Christmas. Players picked tomorrow. #Pistons— Vincent Ellis (@Vincent_Ellis56) December 24, 2015
Van Gundy's reasoning for scheduling the practice, which he did before Wednesday night's loss, was simple: He doesn't want to give the guys two full days off and away from basketball. The Pistons have to be ready to go again on Saturday night against the Boston Celtics.
