Great perspective. One game, with the coach learning what his players bring to the table. Admittedly, he clearly didn't see them bringing a whole lot, but it's still very, very early. There's no getting around it, this is going to be a rough season. Last night showcased the Pistons' biggest weakness, which is their lack of any down-low presence. This is going to be an issue for them all year long, but everyone also needs to consider that the Pacers have one of the best center-PF combos in the league in Hibbert and West, and Hansborough gave some indication last night that he's an almost perfect off-the-bench front court player. Indiana was a bad matchup. Does that excuse the Pistons' weaknesses? No, it doesn't. But as fans, it's no reason to go jumping off a cliff. Sticking with the three positives... Jerebko was overmatched defensively but played well in spite of it. He's going to be a staple of this team for years to come, although ideally he's more of a stretch 3 or bench 4 than a starting 4. Ben Wallace was back to his old self, grabbing 7 boards and blocking 3 shots in only 20 minutes. Stuckey is not an emotional leader, but he did finish with 17 points and six assists, and did it without much help offensively from his wing players (Prince, Gordon, and Daye were a combined 7-27). He was the only player without a negative +/-. He's not all-world, but everyone really needs to get off his back because, regardless of his inconsistencies, he's still the best player on the Pistons' roster. It's only one game. It's only one game. It's only one game. And even if it wasn't, next year's draft class is going to be amazing. So it's really win-win.
