Inside The Cylinder Ep. 79: Pistons playoff preview!

Detroit back in the playoffs for second time in 10 years

NBA: Detroit Pistons at Milwaukee Bucks Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Well, no one said it was easy, but after a long 82 game season, and a highly stressful past week, the Pistons are back in the playoffs for the second time in the last 10 years. That, in itself, is worth celebrating.

We’ll take a look back on the season that was, highlighting the years that Blake Griffin, Andre Drummond and Reggie Jackson put together. We’ll also discuss the front office, and give props to Stefanski and co. for putting forth a plan that delivered Detroit to the postseason without leveraging their future.

Lastly, we break down the Milwaukee Bucks, and try to answer these questions:

  • What makes them so good?
  • How does Detroit take a game away from the league’s best team?
  • What match-up advantages do we like? What match-ups do we fear?
  • Should Blake Griffin play in game 1?
  • What should Detroit’s overall strategy be to make this series competitive?

All that and more in this week’s episode!
