    Right now, the Pistons are 2-9, looking bad overall but promising recently. They've also had double-digit leads in 5 of their games, so we know they're capable of more. Thankfully, they're only 13% of the way through the schedule, so there's a lot of basketball left to play.

    Their next 9 games are:
    @ Orlando (3-7)
    Toronto (3-7)
    @ Knicks (7-1)
    Portland (5-5)
    Phoenix (4-7)
    @ Memphis (8-2)
    @ Dallas (6-6)
    Cleveland (2-8)
    Golden State (6-5)

    They'll be hard-pressed to take down Memphis or New York, but I think they can fairly easily squeak at least 4 wins out of that group, and that, if they continue to play the way they've been playing, 6-7 wins is not out of the question.

    So where do you think they'll be at the quarter-pole?

    With Singler starting, they'll get 2 more wins in the next 9.
    I Singler WASN'T starting, they'd be a 2-18 after 20.

    I think we have a good shot against Orlando, Toronto, Cleavland (kyrie is out) and GS... anyway, I voted for 5-15 but 7-13 is not out of the question

    If the lineup stays the same I'm going 4-6 in the next ten with a chance for 5-5... I like the balance we have now with the starting lineup.

    You should have left out 2-18, one of the most exciting things during the first 9 games was to see if the whole forum would fail to predict the correct record.

    If we're not .500 after 20 games, Joe should be fired.

    This isn't a .500 team yet.
    Not until next year.

    My optimism is returning and I'm going to go with 5-4 from the next 9, giving us 7-13 on the first 20.

    Im hoping for 5-15 but the onus will be on the coach to continue to use his bench effectively

    I put it in there because then nobody can complain about it not being an option.

    Pistons need to go 3-2 in their next five to make good on my 7-13 record.

    GOoooooooo PISTONS!
