The Pistons look for their first win in April

NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Detroit Pistons Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Game Vitals:

When: April 5, 2019, 8:00 p.m. ET
Where: Chesapeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma City, OK
Watch: Fox Sports Detroit, NBA League Pass
Odds: Det +7.0

Projected Lineup:

Detroit Pistons (39-39):
Reggie Jackson, Wayne Ellington, Bruce Brown Jr., Blake Griffin (...maybe), Andre Drummond

Oklahoma City Thunder (45-33):
Russell Westbrook, Terrance Ferguson, Paul George, Jerami Grant, Steven Adams

Pregame Reading:

Blake Griffin is a game-time decision for this game. He DID shoot around with the team, for what it’s worth:

Vince Ellis had the shootaround on Periscope, and, uh... what’s that on Blake’s knee?

That looks like one heck of a compression leg sleeve.

The Pistons obviously need Blake to finish strong. How strong? 42 wins secures a spot:

While we calculate magic numbers and fret about tiebreakers, DBB’s Mike Snyder just brings you the good and the will-get-better of Bruce Brown Jr.

Alright y’all. Let’s get this win.
