Which is to be expected. If you ever posted anything positive about this team I'd be amazed.

There isn't a single poster here who's "all sunshine and rainbows." This team still has a ways to go, we all know it, and we all say it.

Still the worst ranked offense but I think that changes over the next 10 days as we play 5 straight home games. Even the win over Toronto really helped our rank now we're barely behind a few teams. I would still bet we'll end up bottom 5 or 6 in differential but I don't think we finish bottom 3 in point differential. Even last year we were 25th in the league in point differential and we're pretty close to the same team this season with more experience. Missing the shots we've missed has been a bit of an anomaly.

Houston and the Pelicans are awful and even if we go 2-11 the Magic are about to go 1-12. 25 wins will get us out of the bottom three. I see Houston and the Pelicans winning less than 20. We’re bad, but not bad enough lol.

Yeah, if we're not careful we could end up with a 'consolation prize' like Scottie Barnes? :wink:

If they start showing out a better team I'll try to suppress my remorse.

Yes they're posters that get offended when you say anything other than overly positive things about our picks.

Spot on. I like to call it "immature posting" and it's not just here on the Pistons board but on the main board too. It reads like a bunch of teenagers posting or adults who just don't understand the nuance of basketball.
Did you notice that the poster who said Cade was a blown pick disappeared after Cade clutched it out down the stretch? Classic troll and message board poison tbh.

I've always thought aad was a burner account. Or maybe his username stands for Athletics Acumen Disorder.

Only able to watch the 1st half but this is what Im talking about! Someone hits some shots and the PGs all of sudden played with way more confidence. Killian looked like a different player when he passes the ball to his teammates and they make shots. Whatever it takes to get better shooting, get it done.

Putting Cade/Killian out there with brick layers is painful for me to watch - it must horrible for them to pass to guys who cant make anything.

I dont expect every game to be the "Win One for CASEY" in Toronto. I've seen this one before - DET wins for coach even when they are way less talented.

Cade and Killian both pushed down the floor - great passes - lots of energy.
Grant looked bad again in the 1st half - stood at the 3 point line - passed out of open shots - never drove. Looks like he got going the 2nd half.
