Luke Kennard 16 Points Full Highlights (12/30/2018)

New suggestion for the Pistons’ commentators: whenever Luke Kennard knocks down a three-pointer or hits one of his smooth, confident midrange jimbos, you have to yell “He just put them in the KENNEL!” This works on so many levels. It’s like an onion of metaphors where you keep peeling away layers to find more layers:…

Langston Galloway 22 Points Full Highlights (12/26/2018)

I was all ready to make some kind of intelligent-sounding proclamation in this video description about how, when the Pistons’ shooters actually show up to the game and make shots, the Pistons have no problem winning. It was going to be a masterpiece of sports journalism, honestly. People were going to look back at this…

Reggie Bullock Career High 33 Points/7 Threes Full Highlights (12/19/2018)

Reggie “Ock and Bull Torture” Bullock seems to be the Khris Middleton replacement that the Pistons have been searching for these past few years. Trading that dude away was a mistake, no doubt about it, but they took their time and when they found Bullock lying facedown in the trash heap of discarded NBA players,…

Stanley Johnson 20 Points Full Highlights (12/17/2018)

It’s taken a while, three long years of patience from Pistons fans, but Stanley Johnson is finally turning into a not-horrible offensive player. After tonight’s performance, he’s crawled over the 40 percent mark for field goal shooting on a season, something he has never done before. At least, something he has never done before as…

Reggie Bullock 24 Points Full Highlights (12/17/2018)

Looking at the Pistons schedule so far, is it a coincidence that there seems to be a clear correlation between Reggie Bullock playing and the Pistons winning? Detroit’s two losing streaks coincide almost excactly with the two times he’s been injured. My hypothesis, which is based only on my preconceived notions of Bullock as a…

Luke Kennard Career High 28 Points Full Highlights (12/10/2018)

The Pistons need a shooter. Just one. They don’t really have any right now and it’s costing them as they fall in the standings. Langston Galloway, prior to tonight, was probably their best active one. That just doesn’t cut it, maybe in 1978, but not in 2018. Note: I’m not counting Blake Griffin even though…

Langston Galloway 24 Points Full Highlights (12/9/2018)

Every team needs “shooters”. This is 2018. You can’t get away with just trying to dunk it every possession, as fun as that might be to try. The concept of spacing is too firmly entrenched in the NBA psyche to ignore. The Pistons, just looking at their roster right now, are probably struggling a bit…

Stanley Johnson 19 Points Full Highlights (12/1/2018)

Your old pal DTB is currently in a difficult situation. On one hand, I love seeing the Warriors lose. I love observing the online communities on which they congregate go up in flames whenever things don’t go their way. Then Curry retires in a decade, the dynasty is broken up once and for all, and…

Stanley Johnson 21 Points Full Highlights (11/27/2018)

What’s the deal with the severe lack of Johnsons in the NBA right now? It’s basically the most second common surname in America (the first is Muhammad, read a book for once), and it has a storied history of premiere NBA players bearing it. Kevin Johnson (well, he used to be respected), Marques Johnson (gonna…

Reggie Bullock 21 Points Full Highlights (11/19/2018)

The first thing I think of when I look at Reggie Bullock is: what happened to Jordan Hill? The connection seems pretty random until you remember that Jordan Hill had artfully-arranged hair squiggles that were similar to, but even more audacious than, Reggie Bullock’s hair squiggles. So I will now embark on a journey through…
