The 0-6 #Pistons will be playing their last road game, of this the longest road trip of their season Saturday night in Houston against the 2-3 Rockets. The Rockets have lost three straight heading into Saturday’s game against the winless Pistons.

  • The good: Andre Drummond and his 22 points in 20 minutes!
  • The bad: James Harden, who pretty much single handily beat the Pistons on Halloween.
  • The unknown: Every Piston fan is going to be eagerly awaiting more minutes from Andrea and the pairing of Drummond and Monroe. Will Lawrence Frank do the right thing?

Tip off is at 8:00 pm and will be broadcast on Fox Sports . If you can’t catch the game on TV, catch it on the radio over at 97.1 the Ticket.

The Pistons vs. The Warriors width=

The 21-37 Detroit Pistons are in California to take on The 16-41 Golden State Warriors. This is the Pistons final destination of their road trip, but unfortunately most Pistons fans will be unable to see the broadcast.

As I mentioned earlier, this game was pulled from the FSN schedule, and if you have NBA league pass you may only be able to get it on the Warriors side of the broadcast due to local blackouts.   You do what you have to do to get your Pistons Fix.

Will Bynum aggravated his ankle(s) in individual workouts and did not travel with the team for their next two games in Texas.

No word yet on his availability for Saturday’s game at home against the Sixers.

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.

Is this what a Lions fan feels like?

The Pistons must win tonight to avoid the its longest losing streak in 14 years

Could this be the game they snap the streak?
