March is quickly approaching Detroit basketball fans, a month I earlier warned about. The Pistons will begin the month in the middle of a Washington, New Orleans, and San Antonio road trip then come home to find the playoff bound New York Knicks waiting for them. All this may be more magnified since Detroit has lost 3 of 4 since the All Star break while finishing a home and home to the Indiana Pacers in which the Pistons lost both.
In March it will be one playoff team after another including a brutal west coast trip in the middle of the month with 9 of 14 games are on the road. For those of you wondering what the west coast trip looks like it as follows; March 10th at the Clippers, March 11th at Utah, March 13th at Golden State and March 16th at Portland… brutal. Oh yeah, the Pistons then follow that up with Brooklyn and Miami at the Palace.
Essentially though what March may do is move the Pistons back into a position to receive a top five pick.
At the 22-36 the Pistons sit 14 games...
