The Detroit Pistons take on the Milwaukee Bucks for the third time already this season.
The Detroit Pistons will meet a familiar foe tonight when Milwaukee comes into town for the two teams’ third matchup of the season.
The Pistons are executing one of the all-time most enjoyable tanks, losing games but doing it competitively and with an eye on the future.
Jerami Grant has been much better than advertised and has to be the frontrunner for Most Improved Player.
Saddiq Bey looks like a steal from the 2020 Draft and everyone loves Isaiah Stewart already, so these Pistons’ losses are sitting a lot differently than years past.
That being said, it would be nice to get a win against the Bucks, which is one of the things we’d really like to see.
Detroit Pistons: What we’d like to see against the Milwaukee Bucks
The Detroit Pistons have now lost nine games in a row to the Milwaukee Bucks, so even though the tank is on, it would be nice to get a win.
The Pistons are hoping for a top draft pick but that doesn’t mean there isn’t some benefit to winning games.
When you are trying to build a new culture, at some point you have to win, especially when you are running with young guys, most of whom haven’t lost a whole lot in their lives.
The Detroit Pistons have battled in every game this year, a testament to Dwane Casey, but hard-played losses are still losses and eventually, they will take their toll on the young guys.
The Detroit Pistons can speed up the developmental process by getting their young guys into close games that they actually win.
I want the Pistons to get a top pick, but I also want them to learn how to play proper basketball in the process and also learn how to win.
