When could the Detroit Pistons go on a run?
The Detroit Pistons never really built any positive momentum last season. Unlike some of the other young teams, Detroit never had a winning streak, or a run when things were going well, which is how you end up winning 17 games.
Regardless of where they end up in the standings, it would be nice to see this team have a few winning streaks and nice stretches where they look like a playoff team, if not of the present, then of the near future.
At the end of January, the Pistons have consecutive home games against the Hornets, Wizards and Thunder which should provide some amount of relief after the brutal stretch that comes before it.
Again, these games aren’t gimmes by any means, but this is part of a six-game homestand that begins against the Timberwolves and two against the Bucks. Detroit should have a chance to get comfortable at home and maybe string together some wins to close out a difficult month, carrying that momentum into February.
