New, comments

Jordan and Ben are joined by Keith Elliot to discuss the dramatic win over the Raptors, Ish vs. Reggie, and much more!

NBA: Detroit Pistons at Toronto Raptors Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

On this episode of Detroit Bad Boys, Jordan Bellant and Ben Gulker are joined by Keith Elliot (@envius023 on Twitter), "a jack of all trades in the entertainment world" and a big-time Pistons fan.

Keith helps put the season into a different light. Starting with the team's dramatic win against the Toronto Raptors, Ben and Keith help to break down the good and the bad. Talking about the game, the focus turns to the factors that led to the comeback win.

The group debates the merits of Ish Smith deserving more playing time. Also, is there something wrong with Reggie Jackson? Keith offers his thoughts and is ready to pump the brakes on any overreaction to Jackson's struggles.

From there, the conversation turns to Stan Van Gundy, the rotation, and questioning personnel decisions. Is the team in need of a trade at the deadline? What type of move would benefit the Pistons?

Next, it's time to talk about Andre Drummond. Is he better than the advanced stats suggest? Ben has a different way to look at the numbers.

Finally, the trio looks at the upcoming schedule and talks about potential playoff matchups for the Pistons.
