Andre Drummond finishes with two-handed alley-oop dunk against Raptors

The Detroit Pistons beat the Toronto Raptors in a mild upset, 108-104, on Tuesday night. Andre Drummond finished with a strong 21-point, 18-rebound contest. And he finished strong with this alley-oop dunk from Reggie Jackson earlier in the game: He’s already scary now. Drummond will be even more frightening after a few years under Stan Van Gundy’s tutelage. *** Andre Drummond...

Detroit Pistons’ Losing Streak Ends: What Did We Learn?

A little less than a month ago, the Detroit Pistons were sitting nicely at the 9th spot in the Eastern Conference, and had a revamped roster that was poised to make a run at the playoffs. Then, they lost 10 games in a row. Game by game the Pistons piled up the losses in a span of 18 days, pushing themselves out of contention for the playoffs. With this in mind, one could blame this...

When Shooters DON’T Shoot, The Pistons Lose To The Sixers!

Man, off an emotional win beating the Gizz (I hope that catches on), the Pistons go back-to-back and lose in Philly.  Seems like that kind of emotional high/low happens all the time!  Shoulda bet some money on Philly with probably a good betting line against em.

Did the Detroit Pistons Find the Key to Unleashing Reggie Jackson?

There are many things you can call Reggie Jackson’s time with the Detroit Pistons, but prosperous is not one of them. Expected to be a major building block next to center Andre Drummond when acquired at the trade deadline, Jackson has struggled immensely as the Pistons have fallen out of the playoff race in the Eastern Conference. That may have changed Tuesday night against the...

Watch Stan Van Gundy completely blow off Dave Joerger

The post-game handshake between two head coaches is a respectful tradition. Rarely does it turn sour, but after last night's game between the Detroit Pistons and Memphis Grizzlies, Stan Van Gundy decided to give Dave Joerger the cold shoulder. Van Gundy has somewhat of a reputation for being a surly dude, but that attitude is reserved for the media, his players and the general public...

Detroit Pistons: Their Biggest Offseason Of The Decade

  (Source: Getty Images) By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/Hoopstuff.. In a decade Joe Dumars managed to nearly ruin the Detroit Pistons twice in free agency.

Understanding Brandon Jennings 2.0

There is a totally logical and convincing argument that the Detroit Pistons should never have waived Josh Smith with about $40 million remaining on his contract—a bill that the team will still have to foot no matter what. For instance: for the 2016–17 season, the Pistons already have more money committed to Smith ($14 million) than they do to the rest of their team combined...
