The Detroit Pistons play the Portland Trail Blazers tonight. Are the Pistons favored? No. Will the Pistons lose? Yes. Should the Pistons lose? Also yes. I mean, a starting lineup of Gary Trent, Carmelo Anthony and Trevor Ariza shouldn’t scare me in 2020, but I’ve also watched the Pistons all season, so I know better.
Will the Pistons play several young players? Yes. Will Pistons fans be frustrated that the young players didn’t receive enough playing time? Also yes.
Will the Pistons win another game this season? Uhhhhhh ..... maybe not.
