  1. Casey starting Bruce Brown over Kennard is comical. How is a starting lineup of Reggie/Ellington/Brown/Maker/Drummond supposed to score? Need shooters around Drummond and need more than just 1 ball-handler in Reggie. Kennard provides both. Brown provides neither. Thon shouldn't be starting either. I'd go small if I were Casey, and just put all his best guards around Drummond. Spread the court with shooters and run p&r with Andre all day. They'd be quicker defensively too, rotating vs Bucks drive-kick offense.

    How Raps won any playoff games with Casey and Lowry is mind boggling.

  2. Also, the officiating was comically biased. 26-12 FTs (it was 21-4 to start the game). You could tell from the first play who they were favoring, when Lopez blatantly arm-barred Drummond at 0:12 to win the tip and refs allowed it.

  3. Are those grade school kids on the Pistons team or are those NBA players they gave up before the game started! A different line up is needed game two if Blake Griffen is not going to play it is insulting to watch a professional sports team not even give an effort to try to win a game the Pistons must have a line of change and give some players that's willing to come off the bench and put some effort out there on the floor because this is terrible terrible effort and terrible playoff basketball I'm humiliated as a Detroit Piston fan 🤔🤔🤔
