4-16 for 10 points, 2 turnovers, 1 assist and -17. Yeah, that's EXACTLY what the Pistons need right now.

He's a rookie and will have off nights......

But yeah that's not great and I couldn't be happier to be proven wrong.

No they're not, or at least Killian Hayes isn't allowed to have off nights. If you're not a starting caliber player after 30 games you're at best a bench player, or need to be sent to the G-league, or just a flat out bust that the team should move on from immediately.

Fun fact, depending on your definition of fun:

Detroit is currently fielding the only winless team in both the NFL and the NBA. Someone apparently forgot to get the memo to the Red Wings.
At the end of the day, it's not about wins and losses. Teamwork, fair play, and good sportsmanship make champions of us all.

Go arbitrary assortment of athletes! Beat the other arbitrary assortment of athletes or my mood will suffer!

What a draft class. Edwards and LaMelo both headlining their respective games like this. There's a decent chance both of them could be all-stars this season if they keep this up

Really impressed, this was in crunch time btw

You forgot 7 rebs (should have been 8, they removed 1), 2 assists, 1 stl (they gave to another player) 1 blk, +1 and a W while coming back from an ankle injury that had him out for a month.

Damn. I would have traded anything for Zion before this season. Not so sure now. Looks like Oliver Miller out there.

Evan Mobley is a stud at MSG. A cool 26 points in that type of crowd. I may be off on him after all, I still think it was Cade no matter what, but Mobley being better than Green at this point in time was not something I expected. Being on the Cavs might be the perfect situation for him, which is something no one would dare say after Lebron left

What's shocking is Ricky Rubio dropping a random 37 points on Curry like efficiency. Talk about a weird night

I really loved Mobley, I thought he and Cade were 1a and 1b, but the fact that Mobley is doing this well offensively right out of the gate makes me think I underrated him quite significantly. He's already probably a borderline all-nba defender which is just insane. Cade is really going to have to flourish to prove he was the right choice, should be fun to watch

Maybe it's just me... but I'm incredibly put off by the fact there is a Wiretap article about a player seeing a mental health specialist. I'm sorry... but I don't care who the guy is what he's done - that's nobody elses **** business. Respect the dudes privacy. Damn.

PS - this comes from somebody that thinks he's an absolute clown for the way he's handled this entire situation. It's not about that.

Drummond is still the same. Misses an easy shot, grabs his own rebound and scores 2 points, 50% FG 1 rebound 2 points, awesome. Then on defense he misses a rotation and Portis scores a wide open corner 3.

Drummond is still a nice stats loser. It's easier to see that with him playing for a different team tho.

It's crazy that we paid him so much. Marcus Morris, KCP, and Tobias all had more of an impact on us winning than Drummond in that one season we made the playoffs in 15-16. Drummond got his first all-star appearance that year and then got himself a max 5 year deal. Luckily we were able to trade him away for the last 1.5 years of that deal but it was still very much a garage contract we handed out to a guy who cared more about his stats and winning games.

Still needs to up the overall efficiency and reduce turnovers. But you can see the potential.

They started putting him on the ball and having him initiate the offense. That's when he and the team succeed. If they can find a shooter to put next to him, this team will go to the next level. Still impacting the team though. 0-5 without him, 2-3 with him.
