Pregame Reading:

You read that correctly: No Jerami Grant tonight (rest):

DBB’s own Brady Frederickson wrote a reflective piece on Stan Van Gundy’s Pistons since, you known, the Pistons go up against Stan Van Gundy tonight.

Last time the Pistons played the Pelicans, Mason Plumlee had a triple double! Hey! That was fun! Hopefully we see some more of that tonight.

The Detroit Free Press’ Omari Sankofa II wrote a great feature about a piece of NBA and Detroit Pistons history: Ray Scott, the NBA’s first black Coach of the Year, who won that award coaching the 1974 Detroit Pistons.

The Detroit News’ Rod Beard wrote about Jerami Grant’s absence from the 2021 All-Star Team.

The Athletic’s James Edwards III wrote about the Saben Lee explosion the Pistons witnessed in Orlando over the last few days. Is Saben going to have THREE career nights in a row? Here’s hoping.

Enjoy the game tonight, y’all.
