Great hire by Detroit, they just brought in accountability and a plan.

DeMar DeRozan puts Kyle Singler on a poster.
Feb 25, 2014, 9:35 AM EDT
Klay Thompson is known as an outside shooter more than anything else, but he showed some athleticism on this fast break slam where he absolutely destroys Kyle Singler of the Pistons. The best part (after Singler’s punch-drunk reaction, of course) might have been Thompson calling his shot of sorts earlier in the season.

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while listening to Sir David Attenborough narrate curling for the BBC as if it were Planet Earth…. LeBron James, Miami Heat. A lot of us — players and some of the media (myself included, damn Sazerac) — have been fighting off a post New Orleans…

After weeks and weeks of everyone clamoring for the Pistons to change their starting lineup, they’ve finally done it. But Josh Smith, Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond – who excel in pairs, just not as a trio – will still be starting together in the frontcourt. Instead Kyle Singler will replace Kentavious Caldwell-Pope at shooting…

It’s been a rough season for Josh Smith in Detroit, but the man can still get buckets — especially when he drives. Which is what he did Saturday night to beat Phoenix. It was 108-108 with 4.3 seconds left. Smith pops out to the top of the key, gets the inbound pass from Kyle Singler,…

The top of our rankings remain solid this week, but after a bad weekend of injuries there were a few shakeups farther down with more to come. 1. Spurs (12-1, Last Week No. 1). They are the winners of 10 in a row and are doing it with great defense, good offense, not much Tim…

The Detroit Pistons need floor spacing and Brandon Jennings is not providing it. He was 4-of-16 shooting with four turnovers in the Pistons loss Friday night, and in his last five games Jennings is shooting just 35.5 percent. On the season he is struggling to finish (hitting just 44.9 percent in the restricted area), struggling…

When the Detroit Pistons tipped off against the Atlanta Hawks on Friday, Josh Smith was on the bench. This, naturally, raised all kinds of questions. Why wasn’t Smith starting against his former team? Had Maurice Cheeks given up on the Pistons’ big frontcourt of Smith, Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond after just 11 games? Was…
Nov 13, 2013, 4:34 PM EDT
When the Detroit Pistons went out to get Josh Smith to pair with Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond, then added Brandon Jennings to the backcourt, it looked like they had something. It looked like they had a playoff team. Instead the Pistons are off to a bumpy 2-5 start and they have the worst defense…

John Wall missed the Wizards’ first 33 games last season. He made a much quicker mark on a league-wide level this season. Wall became the first player warned by the NBA for flopping. Late in Washington’s loss the Pistons on Wednesday, Wall fell to the court as Kyle Singler ran by him. It’s possible Wall…

If you’re playing the odds, letting Josh Smith take the game winner from three is a smart play — he is a career 28.3 percent from beyond the arc. What the Timberwolves didn’t know is last season Josh Smith shot a solid 36.5 percent from three from the right side above the break — which…

It seems the Pistons suddenly have a bigger backcourt problem than deciding their starting shooting guard. Combo guard Rodney Stuckey is already out with a broken finger. Though Maurice Cheeks hopes Stuckey will return in time for the Oct. 30 opener against the Wizards, according to Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press, that seems…
Oct 10, 2013, 7:54 PM EDT
Just a day ago, Pistons coach Mo Cheeks was giving Chauncey Billups the start at the two and saying Rodney Stuckey would be getting the chance to steal that job. Stuckey had been the best of the three defensively, Cheeks said. Meanwhile rookie Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was left without a chair when the music stopped. (Actually,…

Brandon Jennings, now the the Pistons’ point guard, blamed the Bucks for his subpar shooting percentage. Now, Brandon Knight, the player traded for Jennings, is bringing it full circle by blaming the Pistons for his subpar assist numbers. (As you’ll see, Knight says he’s not blaming anyone. But when you start a sentence, “I’m not…
Chauncey Billups gets seat in Pistons shooting guard musical chairs, leaves Kentavious Caldwell-Pope standing
Oct 9, 2013, 4:10 PM EDT
Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks said Rodney Stuckey and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope were frontrunners to start at shooting guard. At least that’s how it was paraphrased in an MLive report. Either something was lost in translation, or Cheeks had a change of heart. Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press: After naming Chauncey Billups the starter at…
Pistons seemingly narrow starting shooting guard options to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Rodney Stuckey
Oct 7, 2013, 6:40 PM EDT
The Pistons have essentially four starters locked: Brandon Jennings at point guard, Josh Smith at small forward, Greg Monroe at power forward and Andre Drummond at center. That leaves shooting guard, where there seemed to be several contenders. Chauncey Billups Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Kyle Singler Rodney Stuckey Now, halve that list, Detroit coach Maurice Cheeks indicates.…
