Prior to tonight’s game it was announced that Reggie Jackson’s back injury was going to keep him out of the lineup for at least four weeks. Blake Griffin is still out. The team just lost a winnable game against the Chicago Bulls. The team is 2-4 and desperate for a win. Derrick Rose, the team’s back court savior is iffy with a hamstring issue. Good time for a game, right?

Both the Pistons and the Nets are playing the second game of a back-to-back. Hopefully, that is a push and .... uhhh, maybe the Nets used up all their energy with a big comeback win against the Houston Rockets. That’s all I’ve got. I don’t know what to tell you.

Question of the Game

I will be missing tonight’s game because I’m going to see Parasite in Ann Arbor. I am recording the game, but will know the final before I get a chance to watch. Will I ever watch this game?
