After a thrilling shockingly easy victory over the Sacramento Kings, we now return you to our regularly scheduled program. The Detroit Pistons appear seriously overmatched tonight against the Portland Trail Blazers. Playing on the road, on the second night of a back-to-back, without Jerami Grant or probably Mason Plumlee. And to make matters worse, the

The Detroit Pistons have won four of seven games, and suddenly people are afraid the team is winning too much. Sure a couple extra losses would provide a little cushion in the tank battles to come. Tonight, though, there is likely less reason to worry. The Portland Trail Blazers are not the Sacramento Kings. And

The Pistons have been one of the most entertaining bad teams in the NBA
When you shook Dr. Benjamin Paolucci’s hand, you could tell he was a former athlete. Brendan Suhr, who was an assistant coach for the Detroit Pistons from 1988-92, recalled his strong, but soft hands. Paolucci, a team physician with the Pistons from the early 1970s until his retirement in 2015, died at the age of
It seems like Saddiq Bey has been making history all season for the Detroit Pistons. Most recently, he set the Pistons’ all-time rookie record for made 3-pointers and he has an outside chance of breaking the all-time NBA record as well. His sharp shooting and tough defense have drawn comparisons to guys like Ron Artest
Is there a world where the Pistons get the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft and pass on Cade Cunningham? I know, I know. There’s a massive contingent of fans who say dismissively that the Pistons would never get the No. 1 pick anyway — but for kicks and giggles, let’s just play a
The Detroit Pistons are doing great job with their rookies this year. Isaiah Stewart, taken with the 16th pick, is already a fan favorite and now looks like a foundational piece. Saddiq Bey, taken with 19th pick, already has an Eastern Conference Player of the Week honor, and he’s already schooling his former offseason workout
Ten years and five franchises into his NBA career, Cory Joseph has lived through pretty much everything a player can experience over the decade since he left Texas after one season of college basketball.
The Detroit Pistons notched their 16th win of the season last night, which has some fans nervous. The Pistons are clinging onto the 3rd-worst record in the NBA after their win, just 1.5 games “ahead” of Orlando and now 1.5 games “behind” 2nd-worst Houston. The Detroit Pistons have been one of the most entertaining bad
When the Detroit Pistons drafted Isaiah Stewart with the 16th pick a lot of fans were scratching their heads. Now they are frantically going to the Pistons’ store to buy his jersey. Beef Stew has won over Pistons’ fans with his hustle, defense and heart, three things fans in the Motor City appreciate. It’s not

Akil Baddoo’s debut would be a great story even if the Detroit Tigers were the defending champs and the other big four teams here had made recent deep playoff runs, too. Not many longshot prospects hit the first big-league pitch they ever see over the fence and follow that up with a grand slam and a walk-off single. Heck, not
The Sacramento Kings made a deal with the Pistons last month to strengthen their backcourt for a playoff push. The Pistons dealt that push a blow Thursday night – thanks mostly to the performance of their backcourt. The irony of that might be lost on the Kings, but the sting will endure.
Every game seemingly brings something different. Even with two starters out, the Pistons found an alternate combination and found a way to come out with another good game. No Jerami Grant and no Mason Plumlee. No problem. The Pistons played solid on both ends of the court and outlasted the Sacramento Kings, 113-101, on Thursday
The Detroit Pistons outhustled, outmuscled and outplayed the Sacramento Kings for the majority of the 48 minutes Thursday night in a strong 113-101 victory. After the opening quarter that saw Detroit up four, it was largely all Pistons from then on. Detroit took control with a 35-21 spanking of the Kings in the second quarter.
The Detroit Pistons were shorthanded on the road Thursday. Jerami Grant missed the game due to knee soreness, and Mason Plumlee sat out with a concussion. It didn’t slow the Pistons down at all, as they took care of the Sacramento Kings with ease, 113-101. Detroit led by as many as 22 points and fended

Aside from writing for Piston Powered, I also drive for a food delivery service. Considering my unwavering sports fandom, I opt to listen to 97.1 The Ticket instead of music on my long drives. Unfortunately, they spend a majority of their airtime talking about the Detroit Lions, and Detroit Pistons’ content is often lacking. A
