I'm high on Garza as a player in this league. It's rare for players where he was drafted to ever be NBA rotation players and I think as early as next year he could be an ok low MPG backup center for Stewart. He plays hard and he's very skilled offensively with a high bball IQ. We've seen with Jokic how athleticism isn't everything for the center position.

Well that also goes with talking with other Piston fans. Sometimes it's nice to watch a game without reading this forum as it is heavily negative.

You would never know, unless someone posted how much the team was up, the Pistons were winning this game. That should say it all.

Agree we are playing hard and hitting shots and it just feels like eventually Miami will go on a run against us and take control of the game.

Lowkey Frank Jackson kind of looks like the generic 2k char you get when you click randomize face in create a player.

Such a clunky, defensive game. Heat fans must be disgusted at the fact that they’re losing this by ten lol

Well, this is usually the Pistons worst quarter while the 4th is their best.

Good sign? Or impeding implosion?

Frank has gotten really good at dribble drive pull ups. I think last year it was mostly 3s and layups but this year he has shot the mid range pull up jumpers really well at over 50% best on the team.

You have to admit that having the lead pretty much the entire game and now being up by 10 just feels like they're about to give up a run and blow the game.

I still remember everyone being pretty high on Lyles as a prospect back when Utah had him. He's still just 26.

Frank Jackson's shot chart. He's been solid shooting 3s except for the ones at the top of the key straight on(1-13 on those). He's been great at shooting FT line pull up jumpers right in front of where he has been bad at shooting straight away threes... of course its a small sample size there but good to see someone on the team with a promising mid range game. He's actually hitting them right where players would normally pull up if a defender ducks under a pick and roll so it might make some sense to see some Frank Jackson + Luka Garza top of the key pick and roll action. https://www.statmuse.com/nba/ask/frank-jackson-shot-chart-this-season
