DBB’s preview of tonight’s game comes courtesy of David Fernandez - complete with an eyebrow-raising stat about Brooklyn’s defense since the James Harden trade.
Everyone is still buzzing about the Derrick Rose trade - we covered it on both the Detroit Bad Boys and Inside The Cylinder podcasts, and James Edwards and Nicolas Henkel talked about it on their podcast.
The Detroit News’ Rod Beard wrote up Dennis Smith Jr.’s arrival in Detroit, as well. Sadly, it sounds like Dennis’ debut will have to wait until he clears COVID protocols:
#Pistons Dwane Casey says thinks Dennis Smith Jr. will have a 2- or 3-day wait in the COVID protocol before he is available to play.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 8, 2021
Enjoy the high-scoring affair tonight, y’all.
