Pregame Reading:

Rod Beard at the Detroit News wrote about Killian Hayes playing with urgency at the end of the season.

Marlowe Alter, over at the Detroit Free Press, summarized where the Pistons are in the lottery - accompanied by a small explainer about the recent changes to the lottery odds.

DBB’s own Enbiejowiec wrote about Dwane Casey being The Point Guard Whisperer this season.

Saddiq Bey made history against the Hornets:

The Athletic’s James Edwards III had some interesting non-reporting reports in the latest Bun and Cardigan podcast.

That should just about do it. Enjoy the tank tonight, y’all.
