The 21-29 #Pistons will host the 37-14 San Antonio Spurs Monday night at the Palace of Aubrun Hills. Detroit will look for their third consecutive win and their first under interim Head Coach John Loyer. Detroit will have just one day to recover from the firing of Head Coach Maurice Cheeks when they take on a Spurs team that they have taken six of the last ten from.
The good: Detroit has been playing like they’ve been on a mission in their last two win.
The bad: Is it bad thing that Cheeks was fired? The Pistons have had 9 coaches in the last 14 years. It looks like the Pistons are going to wait until the end of the season to hire Cheeks’ replacement.
The unknown: Can the Pistons put aside all the hoopla of Cheeks firing and get right to businesses? Will Brandon Jennings keep playing like a man on a mission? Will they get their first win under Loyer against a very good Spurs team?
Pistons: Josh Harrellson (knee) out.
Spurs: Kwahi Leonard, Manu Ginobili – Out
Marco Melinelli, Tiago Splitter – doubtful
