Great home crowd, and one of the most efficient offenses in the NBA. And they are one of the deepest teams in the league. Currently, they are 3-1 this season against Atlanta, while 1-2 against Cleveland.
Should they be in the discussion of EC contenders?...

First episode is in 20 minutes.

They swallowed the whistles, and let them play. The Seahawks receiver (forgot who) that tripped was the one major missed call that I could remember. I also thought they missed a few false starts in the first half. They let them play, and it was a much better product than calling holding or pass i...

Won 8 of their last 9. Only 0.5 games behind Miami and Brooklyn for the 7-8 spots. Their defense has been pretty ridiculous during this stretch. They are resembling the team that many thought they would be entering the season, after a pretty good year last year.

Not much positive I can say from my perspective

Uncharacteristic for the non josh smith Pistons, they missed every clutch shot, did not mov...

He also has not blocked a shot, and has not made a 3pt fg in 4 attempts. Houston is 1-2 with Smith, with their lone victory in OT vs. Memphis.
Meanwhile, the Pistons are 2-0 without Smith (5-23 with him)....
