Detroit Pistons' week ahead: Heading toward the All-Star break

See also

Same old, same old with the Pistons, you know? They are now 19-29, and they play the Nets tonight at home. Detroit has three games this week, and they are all kind of close together, because the All-Star break is coming up. Andre Drummond will be there for the Rising Stars Challenge. That's it. Right now, the most interesting things about the Pistons are whether or not they fire Mo Cheeks, and what they do at the trade deadline. Still, I guess the Pistons will still play their games, so here's what those matchups are.

Saturday, Detroit hosts the Denver Nuggets. The Nuggets probably won't make the playoffs this year, but they are better than the Pistons, and Detroit is on the second night of a back-to-back. This will be a loss I imagine. Also a loss? Monday's game with the Spurs. Unless San Antonio benches some guys. However, I will not predict that to happen, so I'll consider this a loss.

Then, lastly, on Wednesday, Detroit is still at home, this time taking on the Cavaliers. Cleveland is an even bigger disappointment than the Pistons, and they just fired their GM. Makes me wonder how long Joe Dumars has left? If the Pistons don't make the playoffs this year, I figure this will be his last season. That title was a decade ago. Josh Smith didn't sign himself, you know?

So, my best advice is slog through this stretch and then enjoy the All-Star festivities. They've really changed things up this year. Maybe it will be good. It will be better than the Pistons losing to the Magic.
