Inside The Cylinder Ep. 78: Confidence or concern regarding the Pistons playoff push

We’re joined by Laz Jackson!

NBA: Orlando Magic at Detroit Pistons Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Following a 1-3 West Coast trip and a big win against Orlando at home, we bring in DBB’s own Laz Jackson to make sense of all things Pistons! We evaluate concern levels relating to our recent play - Are there deeper rooted problems with the Pistons’, or was this simply a stretch of games stacked up against them?

The playoffs are inching closer and we do a pulse check on teams fighting it out in the bottom half of the playoff picture in the East. Confidence is high that the Pistons will make it in, but we take a look at several hypotheticals leading up to the end of the season.

The “should he stay or should he go” Andre Drummond fiasco has come and gone, but we pick Laz’s brain on his outlook towards the hotly debated trade deadline topic. Also, with the major buzz surrounding Wayne Ellington’s recent hot streak - how do we retain him this offseason? And is that even our best option?

All that and more in this week’s episode!
