    How many games do you think the Pistons will win this year?

    There are no clauses, constraints, conditions, etc. attached to your prediction. Just follow your gut and click one of the boxes.

    Feel free to add commentary.

    I think the Pistons can flirt with .500.

    The schedule is tough, but gets progressively easier.

    I hope some of the players were using the preseason to try out new things and once the season starts, they settle in to what the know. I really believe that we need to change the dynamic of the team to really see success.

    35 games.
    10th place in the EC.

    8th pick in the 2013 Lottery.

    I assumed that most of our roster was bought out and we replaced them with Euro cast offs.

    31-51 sounds about right with the current roster and coach.

    Just shy of .500

    Poor start to the season, injection of Drummond mid December, decent winter run and some scrub wins at the end.

    I picked slightly over .500 because I think this team can win some games in the 2nd half of the season, even though being 8 games under .500 in Nov will make it tough.
    I know I am an optimist but 35 wins would not be a shock either.

    I will officially guess 34-48 as the Pistons record.

    Pistons are currently on pace to go 14-68.

    34-36 still feels good. This team isn't as bad as the record suggests, I honestly believe that.

    I think a big win over Portland tonight could jump start the Pistons to a nice run and perhaps a 20+ win season.

    I predicted 31-33 and my prediction already is too optimistic. That says all.

    Y'all are forgetting that this team is a .500 club after the first 25 games. So 32-33 wins is totally within reach.

    No team can be a .500 club after 25 games.

    Well...we're 22-37 after 59 games.
    Wins wise...that percentage works out to a 31 win season.
    Kinda wondering if we'll make 30.
    Always interesting to look at predictions.

    Yea, we could easily go 2-12 over the next 14 games.
