The Detroit Pistons are the same team that hasn’t won, that seemingly can’t win, with their current lineup. The team’s offense has cratered to near the bottom of the league and it’s all because Reggie Jackson is out for an extended period and Ish Smith is a good backup point guard and a terrible starting point guard.
Now, we do it all over again. This time, against a Cavaliers team that has Isaiah Thomas, Kevin Love, and LeBron James. Pass the popcorn!
