Cade Cunningham sitting out again

NBA: Detroit Pistons at Boston Celtics David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Pistons face the suddenly dangerous Boston Celtics on the second night of a back-to-back and Cade Cunningham will miss his second consecutive game with a hip pointer. What could go wrong? In truth, the Pistons were able to stay in the game against Minnesota last night thanks to some strong play from Jerami Grant, especially early, Saddiq Bey and Frank Jackson, who scored a team-high 25 points. They just couldn’t do anything to slow Minnesota down. The Wolves had 23 fastbreak points thanks to 11 steals. Detroit has to clean up the miscues and stiffen up the transition defense if it wants to stay competitive against the Celtics.
