Detroit Pistons lose to Indiana Pacers, 108-89: Game thread

Detroit Pistons:

The Pistons are a very young team, they are currently rebuilding. The Pistons are currently last in the league. They have just won 4 games so far, and have lost 12 in a row. The Pistons will be without their best player Jerami Grant as he is projected to be out for at least six weeks with a thumb injury.

The Pistons will be looking to find some positives in 3-point shooting, they are shooting at 31.3% from three, second last in the league. Rebounding has not been their strong pursuit so far, they rank 28th in the league in rebounding. So the Pistons will try to address these issues.

The Pistons are a good free-throwing team, they are 11th in the league in free throw percentage, they are 9th in the league in Steals Per Game. So they will be trying to continue their good performance at the foul line and at stealing the ball.

The Pistons’ young players certainly have the potential to be great in the future, they will only get better as the season progresses.
