8 a.m. ET: These Pistons are redefining the nickname, “Bad Boys.”
Through 10 games, the Pistons are really bad. They lost their first eight games and followed up their first win of the season with a loss to the rebuilding Magic. Greg Monroe is still an improving young big man, but once-key players like Rodney Stuckey and Will Bynum have continued their fall toward irrelevance.
In other words, this is as good a time as any for the Celtics to pay a visit. This game ends a stretch of four games in five days for the Celtics, who then have two days to dust off before hosting Western Conference heavyweights San Antonio and Oklahoma City later in the week. Another wide victory like the one the Celtics enjoyed Saturday against the Raptors would be welcome.
Join us for updates and analysis during the game, which tips off at 7:30 p.m. ET.
