Everyone is assuming the Pistons will lose their next two games (tonight and at San Antonio tomorrow), myself included. Playing a pair of excellent teams on the road, there’s little reason for hope.
But Detroit didn’t win when there seemed to be a chance. So maybe, and I know this a reach, the complete lack of pressure will cause the Pistons to play better.
A more realistic scenario: the Mavericks will use tonight’s game to get back on track after losing by 35 to the Lakers on Sunday.
Will Bynum will miss tonight’s and tomorrow’s games, according to Chris Iott of MLive.
I’m not sure yet if I’ll be around, but stop by Daily Dime Live to chat during the game.
