Flip Saunders was kicked out of the Minnesota Timberwolves, so it is quite surprising that he is succeeding with the Pistons. They are poised to win 60. This is something that no one expected. The Detroit Pistons are the first team that could shift the balance of power to the East if it is true.
They are the East’s best defensive team. Detroit, which allows 91.4 goals per game, has not seen much change. The Pistons’ 안전 토토사이트 starters are only able to defend man-to person, even under Saunders who used the zone defense in Minnesota. With a record of 14-2, who could complain? The Pistons are able to adapt offensively and defensively according to the pace of other teams and can play at their level whether it’s against Portland or Golden State.
Offensively, Detroit is scoring a league-high 7.9 points more than their rivals. This is the real shocker. Larry Brown would have never allowed 99.3 PPG to be possible. Richard Hamilton leads the NBA in 3P%. Tayshaun Prince and Rasheed Wallace are also leading the NBA. Chauncey Billups is ranked #2 in 3-point shooting. The assist column is also impressive, with the Pistons again ranking second in the NBA. We’ve seen that the Pistons can only be defeated if they are blown out early, as we have seen in their two losses. This team makes all the little things in a close game: they make foul shots, hit the clutch jumper and come up big as you would expect.
Antonio McDyess, a solid bench player, is good at balancing out Ben Wallace and Rasheed when they are not in the game. The Darko-filled bench is quite thin, other than McDyess. Lindsay Hunter has been replaced by Arroyo as the backup PG in order to better participate in Flip Saunders’ offense. Detroit was 19-20 at the beginning of 01-02, but then took a tumble and ended up finishing 50-32. They started last year at 7-8, scoring about 91 per game. Then they advanced to the Finals. Detroit has been a slow team for the past half-decade. But, to start this strong means that they will finish strong.
The East is in good shape with Shaq out. Rarely have you seen a NBA team that can function on offense so well and on defense like this. The Kobe Shaq Lakers were the team that attracted sellouts and large attendances from home teams. Slowly but surely, the Detroit Pistons have become the NBA’s number one enemy. Fans are often disappointed when the Spurs win because they are too fundamental and too solemn. You hate the Pistons when Rasheed Wallace makes a mockery of players after he has made a fourth quarter shot.
The public fascination with the Miami Heat means that the Piston’s chances of winning the Eastern Conference Championship are still high at the top betting sites. We recommend you take them to the bank.
