With his "career season," the Pistons were one game away from missing the postseason in a lousy eastern conference altogether.

His propensity for injury - especially late in the season - is one of the reasons the Pistons should've never made the deal!!!

That backcourt of theirs is an abomination. Drummond is a mediocre on the ball defender, too. Every premiere big man in the league makes him look like a bitch.


Wayne County Magistrate Vesta Svenson needs to be criminally prosecuted for misconduct on the bench!!!

They were a 6 seed and then he got hurt... it’s not like he was healthy all the way to the end and they backed in... they were missing their best player for several games...

They lost plenty of games in the final month while he was still healthy.

Here in game 2... that second quarter was a defensive clinic by the Pistons... even if they don’t win this series... man they can play hard if they want to...

Now if they could just have gotten a damn shot to fall in the 3rd quarter....that was BRUTAL.

At least they were competitive tonight. Hoping they can actually win a home game.

Ditto!

And ditto!

What a difference from a few nights ago! If we go down, at least we'll go down with a fight.

Andre Drummond is a pile of useless horseshit. Cannot defend mano-a-mano worth a shit. Looks and plays scared on the offensive end of the floor. Has zero aggressive post moves against Lopez and the Greek Freak.

He certainly didn't play like a "max" last night! :horns As much as he's improved offensively and as a free throw shooter, he was an absolute non-factor on that end of the floor -- Lopez ate his lunch! Hell, Lopez ate his lunch on both ends of the floor.

Half of his 12 points came during garbage time.

The deficiencies of the back court were also on full display for everyone to see. Man, it's awful.

Thirteen straight playoff losses for the Pistons. Ties the all time NBA record!

Lions have lost their last 8 playoff games, so combined that is a 21 straight playoff losses streak for the Pistons and Lions.

Professional sports in Detroit continue to be a joke.
