Detroit Pistons

  1. Potential No. 1 pick Joel Embiid makes it official, will enter NBA Draft

    Apr 9, 2014, 3:47 PM EST

    Joel Embiid

    The only question NBA teams have about him is how serious his back injury is.

  2. Report: Joe Dumars to resign as Pistons general manager

    Apr 8, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Joe Dumars Introduces Josh Smith

    Official word could come very soon

  3. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Spurs set the bar while Pacers fall like a rock

    Apr 7, 2014, 3:13 PM EST

    Greg Popovich

    The Spurs have solidified themselves atop the NBA — if your team is going to win an NBA title they need to clear that bar because the Spurs aren’t coming back to the pack.

  4. Bucks set franchise record with 63 losses

    Apr 6, 2014, 6:30 PM EST

    o.j. mayo bucks

    Bucks weren’t tanking, yet they found a way to have the worst record in the league.

  5. Josh Smith says Detroit disaster not all his fault

    Apr 4, 2014, 5:01 PM EST

    Josh Smith

    Josh Smith is right, it’s not his fault Joe Dumars brought him in as part of an ill-fitting lineup to start with.

  6. Pistons’ Brandon Jennings fined $5,000 for second flopping violation this season

    Apr 1, 2014, 5:31 PM EST

    Brandon Jennings

    Brandon Jennings has been caught twice flopping this year, and that earns him a small fine.

  7. PBT Power Rankings: Spurs running away at top, but a new team in cellar

    Mar 31, 2014, 1:00 PM EST

    Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan

    The Sixers win! The Sixers win! That was enough to move them out of the bottom spot of the PBT Power rankings for a week… which since they are not getting relegated is about the only excitement at the bottom of the table. At the top it is San Antonio then everybody else right now.…

  8. Sixers snap 26-game losing streak with blowout win over Pistons

    Mar 29, 2014, 10:33 PM EST

    brett brown sixers

    Sixers avoid setting the all-time record for consecutive losses in a season, and remain firmly committed to the rebuilding plan that was set in motion last summer.

  9. Four remaining games the Sixers can win

    Mar 28, 2014, 12:35 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Houston Rockets

    I don’t think the Philadelphia 76ers are going to go 0-36 to end the season. They are going to get one more win. But when? Most nights they are overmatched — the other team is just more talented. That’s why they lost game 26 in a row Thursday night to the Houston Rockets, 120-98. The…

  10. Monday NBA grades: Tyreke Evans has found the beat in New Orleans

    Mar 25, 2014, 1:55 AM EST

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Pelicans

    Shhh, don’t tell anyone, but Tyreke Evans has been playing well lately in New Orleans. Also, LeBron James is good at basketball.

  11. PBT Power Rankings: Streaking Spurs on top, streaking Sixers on bottom

    Mar 24, 2014, 1:41 PM EST

    Gregg Popovich, Tony Parker

    San Antonio has won 13 in a row, they remain in the top spot, Philly has lost 24 in a row and remains in the bottom slot. Hey, guess which two teams play this week?

  12. Timofey Mozgov’s revenge (sorry, Josh Smith)

    Mar 20, 2014, 12:08 PM EST

    Josh Smith, Timofey Mozgov

    Timofey Mozgov, most famous for getting dunked on by Blake Griffin, can dunk a little bit himself. Just ask Josh Smith. This wasn’t totally Smith’s fault –  who was Greg Monroe defending on that pick-and-roll? – but there’s no coming back from that. Smith was ejected later in the game.

  13. Kyle Lowry regrets how he handled time with Houston Rockets

    Mar 20, 2014, 11:20 AM EST

    Dwight Howard, Kyle Lowry

    Rockets replacing Rick Adelman with Kevin McHale caused friction.

  14. Pistons’ Andre Drummond out Wednesday, questionable Friday with neck injury

    Mar 17, 2014, 3:27 PM EST

    Andre Drummond

    After injuring his neck against the Pacers he is out against the Nuggets Wednesday and maybe longer. Pistons should not rush him back.

  15. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs, Clippers are your clear top two

    Mar 17, 2014, 1:47 PM EST

    Manu Ginobili, Derrick Favors

    The Spurs and Clippers have distanced themselves from the pack with double-digit winning streaks and sit on top. The Sixers have anchored themselves to the bottom.

  16. Anthony Davis’ 40-20 game by the numbers

    Mar 17, 2014, 9:15 AM EST

    Celtics Pelicans Basketball

    The 2012 draft already looks like it will go down as one of the NBA’s stronger ones ever. Andre Drummond is incredibly promising. Damian Lillard won Rookie of the Year and is even better this season. But there’s no doubt, if the draft were re-done, Anthony Davis would remain the No. 1 pick. Days like…

  17. Pistons’ Andre Drummond leaves game with head/neck injury (VIDEO)

    Mar 15, 2014, 8:59 PM EST

    2014 BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge

    How Detroit’s Andre Drummond staggered and went down after this hit, and how he stayed down for several minutes (all the way through the ensuing commercial break not part of the above video), is a little frightening. The medical staff brought out a stretcher but he got up under his own power and was helped…

  18. Pacers to sit Andrew Bynum for Friday’s game in Philadelphia

    Mar 13, 2014, 8:23 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Indiana Pacers

    Andrew Bynum looked strong in his Pacers debut on Tuesday, scoring eight points and grabbing 10 rebounds in just 15 minutes of action against an undersized Celtics front line. Even with three days off before his team’s next game, however, Bynum is going to be held out on Friday — a game that’ll be played…

  19. Interesting stat: Teams score better in crunch time when they don’t call timeout

    Mar 13, 2014, 4:09 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    Coaches are micromanagers almost by nature. They want control, they want to set things up. So in crunch time, when their team needs a bucket, they almost inevitably call a timeout to set up a play. Of course, that also lets the defense make substitutions and set themselves up as well, but coaches want that…

  20. PBT Power Rankings: Tell me again how the Spurs are too old….

    Mar 10, 2014, 2:41 PM EST

    Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker

    And the first Eastern Conference team comes in at …

  21. Extra Pass: Are the Detroit Pistons putting a new twist on tanking or being lousy?

    Mar 10, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond, Josh Smith, Maurice Cheeks

    The fewer the minutes for a team’s best players, the more likely teams are to be tanking and vice versa. Except in Detroit.

  22. Brandon Jennings: Detroit Pistons don’t hold themselves accountable

    Mar 9, 2014, 11:00 PM EST

    Brandon Jennings, Josh Smith

    “With good teams, somebody sees somebody messing up, then you tell them. Straight up.”

  23. Josh Smith fantasizes about playing with Rajon Rondo again

    Mar 9, 2014, 8:00 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks

    Just like old times at Oak Hill Academy?
