Pistons vs. Clippers GameThread: Detroit welcomes the NBA's best(?) team to the Palace

New, comments
NBA: Toronto Raptors at Los Angeles Clippers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Pistons are one of the NBA's best home teams, outscorings opponents by 105 points at the Palace this season. However, tonight they face what is certainly their toughest opponent in the Los Angeles Clippers. Led by the always great and still somehow underrated Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, who has never played better defense, Detroit will need to handle an unrelenting defense and potenr offense. Here is hoping the Pistons don't play like a team running like a team that ate too many Thanksgiving turkey and stuffing.
