The Detroit Pistons were dominated by the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday, losing 100-115.This wasn’t a good game for anyone on the team. Seriously, they were terrible in all categories for this game. But at least they didn’t lose to the Knicks.
The Brooklyn Nets were trounced by the New York Knicks on Sunday, losing 97-110. Granted Kyrie not playing in the game didn’t help their chances of winning this game to begin with. Hell, they were worse than the Pistons were against the Cavs.
The Pistons need to find a way to get on track fast if they plan on staying in the eastern conference playoff race. The Pistons are 21st in points per game, 10th in field goal percentage, 29th in rebounds per game, 14th in steals per game, 25th in turnovers per game, 17th in blocks per game, and 18th in +/- rating. Maybe if Blake Griffin somehow comes back, they’ll have a chance.
Man, if KD wasn’t still down with his Achilles injury from the finals last year, this team would be entirely different. But right now, they need to hope that Kyrie can carry this team to the playoffs. The Nets are 19th in points per game, 24th in field goal percentage, 3rd in rebounds per game, 25th in steals per game, 28th in turnovers per game, 19th in blocks per game, and 22 in +/- rating. Right now, their holding on to the 8th seed by a string.

This game is honestly a coin flip who wins. However, Kyrie should give them the edge here, assuming he plays. This game should come down to the wire. If Kyrie wasn’t playing however, go with the Pistons.
