James Edwards of The Athletic wrote about how the Pistons are living their worst-case scenario.
Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press has your recap of the last time Blake Griffin played against the Clippers in L.A. If you don’t remember how that went, I will oblige you, as well:
Man, we haven’t seen THAT guy in awhile.
Looking towards the future, I had a podcast with Trevor Magnotti about the 2020 NBA Draft class and the players that could make the next version of this Pistons team hum.
Tonight’s a national TV game (it’s on NBA TV), as well, so prepare your bodies for the baleful gaze of national writers to turn slightly to “Wow, the Pistons are lifeless and terrible.” Enjoy the game as best you can, y’all.
