Pistons haven’t used zone defense, sounds like they won’t this season

David Mayo of MLive:

The Detroit Pistons never have used a zone defense this season and haven’t even implemented one, head coach Lawrence Frank said Wednesday.

“I think we showed it to our guys once but it was more to work against it,” Frank said.

Frank said he would have implemented a zone if he had a normal-length preseason training camp and an 82-game season to do so.

If the Pistons’ defense doesn’t leap forward next year, I’ll be disappointed.
