The Pistons probably aren’t looking forward to their second game in two nights against Chris Paul and the 33-22 New Orleans Hornets. And as Pistons fans I don’t think I have to tell you why. OK I guess I will tell you a little something that’s eating on all of us right now.
- First time the Pistons fell below .500 after the halfway mark
of the season since 2000-01
- 7 game skid
- Rotation deviation.
- Defensive disarray.
- Locker room tension.
- Lack of leadership.
Here’s a look at the Pistons’ numbers over the last nine seasons, starting with 2000-01, the season before they became a perennial 50-game winner.
|Pistons Record Since 2000-01|
|* = Won NBA title
** = Reached NBA Finals
PACE = Possessions per 48 minutes
OFF RAT = Points scored per 100 possessions
DEF RAT = Points allowed per 100 possessions
You get the picture.
Is this what a Lions fan feels like?
The Pistons must win tonight to avoid the its longest losing streak in 14 years
