This win gets one back for the giveaway at home against Atlanta. Again, this is not suppose to be a lottery year... The Pistons found an injury riddled team that is more dysfunctional than they are at the moment. Yes, Stuckey keeps playing well. Good. But Stuckey can not bail out the poor shooting and lack of offense for too long. Notice at times, the ball is passed around the perimeter and no one wants to shoot like the possession just inside the 4 minute mark in the 4th. Or, the ball goes in and pops back out and no one wants the shot. Take your pick: Pope, Jennings, Singler. Either Pope eventually shoots or Josh gets a poor look. This can't go on too long as the Piston offense is working to get guys open looks who do not have NBA ready shots. And setting up Stuckey for a three is not high percentage. Give Jennings credit. He admitted in the press what we can see: he said he has lost confidence in his shot. Of course, poor coaching has contributed. Jennings, especially on this team, should be encouraged to launch the three when in motion. Instead, he is learning to be a point guard in the strict (passing sense), something he is not. So he has "lost his shot." Pope is starting as a shooting guard, but as a raw rookie, like so many rookies, he has no NBA ready shot. This cannot continue long as again, this is not a lottery year. As a team, you can't keep shooting blanks on offense and hold in defense. It is not football. You wonder whether a high-low post attack (Monroe and Drummond) would be more effective. And, poor free thrower or not, just getting the ball into Drummond and working off of him. The defense? Can't tell. Brooklyn is too disfunctional. Have to see if the Piston defense can stay with teams that continually pass and are in constant motion. So far, teams that have played together in a while in their system have cut through the defense. The Pistons have a chance to make up some ground in the next few games and get back to .500. 20 games, 30 games. That will tell where the team stands in the league. And then, the trade or trades? once they know the entire outlook of the team.
