Tweet The Detroit Pistons got something in their final game of the preseason that we haven’t seen much of over the years; Josh Smith nailing a long jump shot. Not only did he nail a jumper, Smith sank a three-pointer at the buzzer to give the Pistons a 99-98 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves: In fitting style, Smith needed a little...
This hopefully will not be one of the high points of Tom Gores’ reign as owner of the Detroit Pistons. But Gores decided to join in the celebration after Josh Smith’s last-second three-pointer handed the Pistons a preseason win over the Timberwolves.
Smith’s shot hit front iron, then flipped into the net as the clock hit zero, erasing a 98-96 deficit. As the Pistons’ benched...
Hoisting up shots from long range is typically something I cringe to see Josh Smith settling for. His size an athleticism make him the perfect weapon while driving into the lane. But, at times, Smith has a bad habit of settling for shots from beyond the arc , where he boasts a less-than-impressive 28% for his career.
On Thursday night in Detroit, Smith saved the day with his 3-point...
Will Greg Monroe be a Piston after 2014?
Every Detroit Pistons season preview I’ve read over the past four or five months has pretty much had the same conclusion: Joe Dumars took a step forward this summer, but the Pistons are far from a completed project. I’ve seen predictions that the Pistons will land somewhere between sixth and ninth place in the East with no chance whatsoever...
There’s not much to be excited about in Detroit these days, but a much improved Pistons squad is one of the few. Owner Tom Gores was thrilled for one, when Josh Smith hit a buzzer beater three to end the preseason.

AUBURN HILLS -- If you look very closely, you can see a bit of gray in the stubble on Chauncey Billups' chin.
That's about the only thing that has changed in the last decade.
Tuesday, Billups was running the Pistons offense in a meaningless preseason game, not the NBA Finals, but there wasn't any question who was in charge as Detroit tried to hold off Washington.
Detroit Pistons’ guard Brandon Jennings engaged in a light workout on Wednesday wearing a mask to protect his injured jaw. There is no way he can play with basketball that way or even train properly, so his return is still a way away.
Kurt Helin of NBCSports.com reported that David Mayo of MLive.com says that Jennings will miss the first four games of the regular season.
Greg Monroe scored 18 points and the Detroit Pistons beat the Washington Wizards 99-96 in a preseason game Tuesday night.
The Pistons led 65-43 after making seven 3-pointers in the first half but the Wizards gradually trimmed the lead and tied the game at 83 midway through the fourth quarter on Kevin Seraphin's turnaround jumper.
Kyle Singler and Chauncey Billups hit consecutive...
It was just six and a half months ago that former Cards Peyton Siva and Gorgui Dieng were cutting down the nets in the Georgia Dome after guiding the University of Louisville to their first national championship in 27-years.
Tonight, they’ll both be on the court together; however for the first time in three years, they won’t be teammates. Siva’s new team, the Detroit Pistons...
In an ideal world Maurice Cheeks would probably have already revealed his starting backcourt for opening night.
But circumstances are far from ideal with injuries to Brandon Jennings (jaw/wisdom tooth) and Rodney Stuckey (broken right hand).
So Cheeks isn’t ready to proclaim who will start alongside Andre Drummond Greg Monroe and Josh Smith when the team begins the regular season...
Trailing 65-43 at the half, a furious Wizards rally came up short as they dropped a 99-96 decision in Detroit. Bradley Beal led Washington with 17 points, while big men Nene and Kevin Seraphin combined for 29 points and 15 rebounds against the powerful Pistons frontcourt. Detroit’s new twin towers of Andre Drummond and former […]
With the Detroit Pistons win at home over the Minnesota Timberwolves, the team’s preseason has finally come to a close. The team finished with an even 4-4 record, but still had quite a few positives to take away. The first obvious one is that they managed to go 4-4 even without their starting point guard, ...The post Detroit Pistons Preseason Awards appeared first on The League News.
It’s been a few years since basketball fans in the city of Detroit had something to be excited about going into a season. Not since the 2007-2008 season – when the Pistons’ core lineup of Chauncey Billups, Richard Hamilton, Tayshaun Prince, Rasheed Wallace, and Ben Wallace – made their last stand making the Eastern Conference Finals – an eventual 6 game loss to the Boston...
Final Score: Minnesota Timberwolves – 98, Detroit Pistons – 99 The Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Detroit Pistons was the final preseason game for both teams. These are two fairly evenly matched teams, as the Pistons will be right in the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff hunt, while the Timberwolves might be able to sneak into ...The post Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Detroit...
There’s a time and place to work the kinks out before the games count for real and the Pistons used their exhibition game against the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night to do just that.
And although they used the “in case of emergency break open Chauncey” glass they’re sure glad to know he can deliver — no matter how meager the stakes are.
A 24-point lead evaporated...
