Pistons – especially Will Bynum and Rodney Stuckey – want to play faster


Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News:

"Pistons have been begging to play faster, especially Bynum, Stuckey."

The Pistons play at the NBA’s 22nd-fastest pace, but when Will Bynum is on the court, Detroit plays at the equivalent of the league’s 12th-fastest pace. Unfortunately for Rodney Stuckey, the Pistons drop to the equivalent of the 24th-fastest pace when he plays.

These are the types of small issues that can boil over when teams struggle and are masked when teams win. The Pistons, obviously, have been losing more than they’re winning, so it’s imperative Lawrence Frank doesn’t allow this to fester.

This also speaks to how much trust Frank has shown in Bynum this season.
