Pregame Reading:

Over at The Athletic, James Edwards III had a revealing conversation with Saddiq Bey about his role change, his mentality coming into Year 3, and grinding out of a slump. Even as Saddiq has been uneven this year, he’s always been an easy person to root for, and this conversation was a great look into that person.

At the Detroit Free Press, Omari Sankofa II talked to Jalen Duren about how ready he was to be a starter. Duren’s numbers in the last few games speak for themselves, honestly:

For us here at Detroit Bad Boys, Matt Way dove into the numbers and film to show how Isaiah Stewart has expanded his offensive game. “Expanded” is too small a word for the strides Beef Stew has made; Stewart has already made more threes this year than he did in his previous two combined.

Enjoy the game tonight, y’all.
