PG and CA takes turns shooting terrible. Bad additions that aren’t helpful winning anymore than what they had.

GM needs canned if it doesn’t turn around

Of course Carmelo made 5 of last 7 FG and Thunder pull out the win. Russ had a game from last year. Adams damn efficient as usual

So I heard a crazy statistic today and perhaps it'd support whoever (S&L?) said Tibbs may not be that great of a coach. If you look at the MPG, Minnesota has FOUR players in the top 30. Wiggins and Butler are in the top 7. No one else besides New Orleans has more than two players in the top 40. 

Interesting to think about those Bulls teams from 2013-2015 and how Rose, Noah, Gibson, Deng all have been plagued by injuries since playing then.

Not sure there is a great correlation though. Did those Bulls players average crazy minutes compared to other top players. Players in 70’s-90’s not play that many minutes?

The Bulls thing I meant just as FWIW. However, looking up the 2014 MPG, Butler ties for first, Noah tied for 24th, Deng at 28th. Not that impressive as Portland had three in the top 20 (Lillard, Aldridge, Batum).

This seems like the only choice right now, but lots of basketball left.

Little rant here but the Pistons ticket prices are absolute shit. While lower bowl seats are less by about $10 than the Cavs, the get in the door price is $4 more in Detroit and similar across the upper the deck whine comparing Cavs and Sixers against Celtics vs Pistons tomorrow. Stinks that they have a playoff team this season, but continually play in an empty arena because  the prices are similar to a team who has the best player in the world and has made 3 straight finals. Would love to go tomorrow to see them play Boston but not thrilled to throw down $80 a seat to sit on the edge of the lower bowl

If you wanna go...go. If price isn’t worth it to you...stay home. I’ve never bought a ticket that seemed a little steep to something I really wanted to attend that ended up not being more than well worth it after the even.

Or at least don't get online to whine about $80 dollar tickets. Damn!

Agreed just seems obvious reading message boards that it's keeping fans away. Probably just going to scalp some tickets tomorrow for the game

It's a BRAND NEW STADIUM in downtown Detroit. Prices don't seem out of whack. If it was a shitty stadium 25 years old, you reflect the team. For a new stadium, no matter how good or bad (and Pistons are a playoff team lololol) prices will be high. Good fans go regardless.
