Pistons aren’t even trying to win this game, not like that matters. Let’s just hope Tuesday nights Mavericks show up again

Luka is resting and half of Pistons roster is on the injured list aswell. Mavs can't lose this one even if they try.

Wtf. Playing for top-6 - two days rest before next game. Don't throw a must-win game by resting players.

Luka needs rest because he has been dragging his feet for few games now. Plus he was limping every game for some weird reason. Anyway.. KP will probably play and Pistons will miss all their important guys. Should be an easy win.

Hopefully. Team has been very bad in the 5 games without Luka. Just think it's a stupid game to rest players. Had a day off and two days rest after the game. Go in, full strength, and get the job done.

Look at their schedule. This is THE perfect game to rest anyone. They have a lot of B2B games plus basically any game from here on will be a tough and close fight for either 5th, 6th or 7th spot. Even those two CLE games are going to be towards the end of the season so they will be just as important. Plus few games against direct opponents who fight for a high playoff spot. People say rest of the schedule for Mavs is easy, i think it's really tough.

As i stated. Two days of rest after the game. Should be no reason what-so-ever to rest your key-player in a must-win game when you're fighting hard for top-6. Would be so **** stupid to throw a game like this because of rest.

Should go full strength and get the job done quick and easy.

Now this is an interesting starting lineup. If KP wasn't playing, you would almost think they are tanking lol.

You need to win something without Luka too. I have read somewhere that Pistons will miss players who scored 70+ points in first game between them. If they cannot win against that kind Pistons, they need to trade everyone except Luka and maybe even him.

But is this really the time to do so? Do you reckon Lillard are getting rested in one of the coming games?

Two days rest after todays game. Should've played him. Win or lose.

Just as a reminder to Mavs fans, this Pistons team is not as bad as their record indicates, and that rookies starting lineup is actually pretty damn good. In interest to all parties involved, Luka had better play or your going to have a game on your hands.

You want the win, I would appreciate the loss.(big fat juicy draft pick)

Besides that, I love watching Luka play and if he doesn't, ill be pretty damn disappointed.
