Pistons vs 76ers: The good, bad and ugly

A near fourth-quarter collapse did not prevent the Pistons from finishing the preseason with a 109-103 victory over Philadelphia on Thursday night. The Pistons came into this game depleted even before news of Brandon Jennings' sore achilles causing him to miss the preseason finale.  Therefore, D.J. Augustin grabbed the start with Spencer Dinwiddie clear 2nd choice PG.  Greg Monroe also sat this one out, as the team prepares for his two game NBA suspension to start the season as a result of a his DUI.  Let's examine the good, the bad, and the ugly. The Good - Spencer Dinwiddie looked very...

Previewing the 2014-15 Pistons: Greg Monroe

A year has passed, and the uncertainty about Greg Monroe's future remains. He's still a year away from potentially leaving for nothing. His role still has a lot to do with Josh Smith. It's anyone's guess how that plays out in 2014-15. A year later, and nothing has changed. In previewing Greg Monroe's season for 2014-15, I could just copy and paste my lead paragraph from last summer's preview. You know what? I'm going to go ahead and do just that: Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the most under-appreciated big man in the Eastern Conference.  If you've been listening to the national media...

Piston vs. Hawks: Stan Van Gundy doesn't plan to play Andre Drummond, Josh Smith and Greg Monroe together

Piston vs. Hawks: Stan Van Gundy doesn't plan to play Andre Drummond, Josh Smith and Greg Monroe together

Stan Van Gundy wants to take a longer look at the wings during Saturday night's preseason game. Stan Van Gundy was adamant before the game that he was not happy with the team's defense on Friday night in Orlando, particularly from his big men. He said he expects Andre Drummond, Greg Monroe and Josh Smith to anchor the defense. Drummond had five blocks, but Van Gundy was quick to discredit the statistic as any indication that the penguin played well on defense. Van Gundy does not plan on playing the 'Big 3' together on Saturday night against the Atlanta Hawks, stating that he wants to get a...

Greg Monroe not worried about bench role, for now

Greg Monroe not worried about bench role, for now

Moose was Detroit's most consistent big man despite coming off the bench. If that continues in the regular season, though, he'd prefer the starting job be decided by production. Greg Monroe didn't need to start to make the biggest impact among the Detroit Pistons' talented trio of big men. Playing 31 minutes off the bench, he paced the Pistons with 24 points and nine rebounds in a 111-109 overtime win against the Chicago Bulls. Andre Drummond scored 13 points, shooting 6-of-13 and grabbing five rebounds in 27 minutes. Josh Smith scored nine, shooting 4-of-11 and grabbing five rebounds....
