After everything else, Pistons had to take cold shower after loss to Jazz

I’m not sure what the Pistons players did in their past lives to deserve this karma, but it must have been something.

Not only have they lost six in a row, not only is star rookie Andre Drummond still out, not only did Brandon Knight get dunked on then sprained his ankle and will be out a while, not only is Greg Monroe calling out teammates, now they can add this insult to the injuries:

Cold showers.

That’s what they got in Utah Monday night, reports David Mayo at M Live (via Ball Don’t Lie).

When you’re cold, you’re cold, and the Detroit, already down two starters Monday, found an additional irritant when they didn’t have hot water for their post-game showers.

While plenty of NBA players could have used a cold shower over the years, that’s just not fair to this group.

They deserve to catch a little break as the losses pile up and players drop like flies. The Pistons stay out West to face the Warriors Wednesday and the Trail Blazers this weekend. At least have hot water for the guys to go with their next couple losses. It’s not asking too much.

      is that it, why was there only cold water, would it have hurt to tell
      us why there was no hot water. Did a pipe burst, did the hot water tank
      leak, why is there no more info.

    I agree with the article, but ENOUGH about Brandon Knight get dunked on already. Yes, it was a great dunk, but so what?

    All players get dunked on from time to time. Even the greats. Remember Hakeem getting dunked on by Kevin Johnson? Michael Jordan by John Starks?

    Give Knight some credit for not running away from the play.

    Another example of image/style being more important than substance.

    Time to put this non-story to bed.

      What you are saying is true but…..whenever you get dunked on, whoever it is…goes through the same ridicule, it just goes with the territory! LOL…give credit? Thats like saying give credit to the dudes that Mike Tyson knocked out because they didnt run….you still get laughed at, regardless

      he was the only one to play defense on that possession, his
      team looked like statues.at least he joked about it, I give it up to him.

    Detroit is a dump. These guys are lucky to be out on the west coast even if there wasn’t any hot water for these little girls.

    Stern. Please freeze our lottery ball this May. Since we’ve never seen an allstar game (in detroit) when we lead the league in attendence in the 00’s it’s the least you can do

      Getting the all-star game is about the team and market not applying. In Detroit, the issue I hear is hotel room space near the arena (you need A LOT of rooms and convention space). Whatever the reason, I know Detroit hasn’t even applied in years.

    No hot water in an NBA arena? Stay classy Utah….
