Pregame Reading:

No Blake Griffin, Christian Wood, or Luke Kennard tonight:

Maybe that does mean time for rookie Sekou Doumbouya, or maybe it doesn’t. But it DEFINITELY means more Thon Maker. Hoooray.

For their part, the Celtics are also pretty banged up:

The Athletic’s James Edwards says the Pistons should attack the trade market earlier rather than later.

Dana Gauruder at the Detroit Free Press had some post-game quotes from Blake Griffin and Dwane Casey regarding Blake’s health.

Enjoy the game tonight, y’all.
