Detroit Pistons power rankings

28

Mark Heisler of Sheridan Hoops:

No reason to panic, knowing three were on road and it was just a matter of time before Stuckey, 1-23 in first three, made another shot.

29

Kurt Helin of ProBasketballTalk:

This pretty much sums up the season so far: Rodney Stuckey is 1-of-23 shooting. And if you look ahead for the next week or so on their schedule you see two games against the Thunder, plus the Nuggets and Rockets. Not good.

Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports:

Rough start included an embarrassing blowout loss to the Lakers.

30

John Schuhmann of NBA.com:

Migraines are reportedly to blame for Rodney Stuckey’s ugly 1-for-23 shooting so far, or at least partially to blame. Either way, the Pistons need Stuckey untracked, because their backcourt depth is suspect. Wednesday’s visit to Sacramento could be important to this team’s psyche, because their other four games over the next eight days are against Denver, OKC (twice) and Houston.

Matt Dollinger of Sports Illustrated:

The Pistons had the unfortunate task of shutting down Harden in his first game as a Rocket. That didn’t go well. Neither did facing the 0-3 Lakers on their home floor four nights later. To make matters worse, Detroit faces a brutal four-game road stretch this week to complete a six-game trip. If the Pistons can’t beat the Kings in Sacramento on Wednesday, an 0-7 start is more than likely. One reason for Detroit’s early struggles is the poor play of Rodney Stuckey, who is averaging 3.3 points on a mind-boggling 1-of-23 shooting. He was once viewed as a player Detroit could build around, but now he’s being outplayed by rookies Kim English and Kyle Singler.

30

Seth Rosenthal of SBNation:

Yoooo, Pistons backcourt. Guys. You’ve got to start hitting your shots, guys. This is not a good strategy.

30

Marc Stein of ESPN:

The Pistons are down here for a reason or three. They were helpless against Harden’s 37, thoroughly uncompetitive Sunday against the Nash-less, crisis-ridden Lakers … and remain at a loss to explain how Rodney Stuckey could start the season by missing 22 of his first 23 shots.

      30

      Sam Amico of Fox Sports:

      Unexpectedly looked not only young, but disjointed, during the season’s opening week. Are these guys something more than that?

      30

      Matt Moore of CBSSports.com:

      Ye. Gods.

      Without just piling on, it’s difficult to argue with any of the points presented. Prior to yesterday, we HAVE looked completely disjointed and helpless. Yesterday we showed an ability to score when Monroe ran the offense and Knight hit shots, but still showed almost nothing defensively. The only other winless team is Washington, and they are missing their best player. We’ve had perfect health (discounting Maggette who has no business playing anyway), and still haven’t shown any ability to hang with middle of the pack teams.
       
      Save us, Shabazz! (Still working on some sort of signature)

      An average of 29.67. It can only get better from her. Wait, I didn’t just jinx it, did I? There were two sites who put the Pistons at 28th and 29th.
