Pistons vs. Nets GameThread: Game Time, TV, Odds, and More

If the Pistons want to avoid NBA infamy, it will require Bojan Bogdanovic to play better than he did against the Utah Jazz

At this point, NBA infamy feels inevitable. The Detroit Pistons, losers of 25 straight games, don’t seem any closer to figuring things out or putting a better product on the floor. The staters can sometimes play well, but the Pistons bench is so far from being able to tread water that any move to the bench sees the Pistons outscored by double digits in quick succession. Maybe with the wrong kind of history on the line, they can dig deep and figure it out. Maybe with a terrible NBA record on deck and increased scrutiny throughout the league, Monty Williams will ride his starters for 44-plus minutes each. Maybe they can simply get lucky. The fact they couldn’t beat the Utah Jazz sitting most of its best players doesn’t exactly fill me with hope. We’ll see.
