The Pistons lost to the Grizzlies in overtime Friday night, but they were very competitive and played at a playoff level against a Western Conference Contender on the road. They look athletic, fast, talented, and able to grind with their talented frontcourt.
And with plays like this, dive from Geg Monroe, a push by Will Bynum, a great dropoff pass and the hammer from superfreak Andre Drummond, they're going to be competitive this year in the first year after their makeover.
That's a whole lot of beasting right there. The Pistons need defensive shoring and for Josh Smith not to build a brick house. But they are passing the ball well and have a ton of physicality. We'll see how they do when Brandon Jennings comes back.
