Pregame Reading:

Fearless Leader Sean Corp asks the REAL question in today’s preview: Who is going to score for the Pistons without Jerami Grant on the floor?

James Edwards III at The Athletic says teams should stop leaving Isaiah Stewart open. Maybe they will, maybe they won’t?

Over at the Detroit News, Rod Beard wrote about why the Pistons are worth watching despite all the losses.

If you disagree with Rod and are ready for draft talk, the Inside the Cylinder crew has you covered, with Adam Spinella helping them analyze the top of the 2021 NBA Draft. (I also had some much less detailed thoughts about a few guys at the top of this year’s draft on Pistons Vs. Everybody.)

Enjoy the game tonight, y’all.
