VIDEO: Pistons run and gun for the Drummond and-one

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.
