The 17-32 Pistons will host the 15-35 New Jersey Nets Friday night at The Palace of Auburn Hills. The Nets have lost 11 straight on the road and seven in a row at The Palace. The Pistons are on their own 5 game skid with the last lost against the Bobcats Wednesday night being extra brutal for Detroit.
The good: The Pistons have not lost at home to the Nets since March 26, 2006.
The bad: Brooke Lopez
The drama: Tayshaun says this is a wasted season…but Kuester disagrees.
The “flu” drama: Nobody knows if Rip will ever recover from this devastating illness….our prayers go out to him.
- Jason Maxiell (sore back) is out.
- Rodney Stuckey (right shoulder contusion) doubtful.
