In our continuing midseason grades series, it’s time to turn our eye to the Detroit Pistons’ shooting guards and assign grades.

Stanley Johnson shows confidence and patience with his offense in LA

Baby steps for Stanley in recent games, especially back in his hometown of Los Angeles. Sticking with the good vibes from Sunday’s victory in Los Angeles over the Lakers, I’d like to highlight Stanley Johnson’s improved play as of late, which has been reason for many of us not to bang our heads in *all the way* and call this season anything but salvageable. Yes, let’s...

Pistons High / Low: Back on (somewhat) track in Los Angeles

Film don’t lie. After a horribly sluggish start, the Pistons finally put away the Lakers 102-97. To the tape we go.

Andre Drummond may be a better shooter from the *opposing* free throw line

Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond is a double-double machine (averaging 14.3 points and 13.4 rebounds per game), but my goodness is he an absolutely horrible free throw shooter. Like, the very worst free throw shooter in the NBA, and arguably the worst free throw shooter of all-time. Heck, last season he set an NBA record with 23 missed free throws in a game. He’s actually...

Pistons at Lakers final score: Pistons close road trip with tight win in LA, 102-97

It was some ugly basketball. The Pistons and Lakers entered tonight’s game each with three game losing streaks. The two teams had lost their last two games by a combined 109 points. It was a tight game for the most part, but it was less an exercise in good, competitive basketball and more of a “which team can fail less” performance. Neither team played much in the way of...
