The night after taking down the Portland Trail Blazers, Dallas went to Orlando and lost a crucial tank game with the Magic.
It was the first game without Dirk Nowitzki after he underwent ankle surgery that will hold him out of the rest of the season, obviously. Dirk should be fine for next season and still says he wants to play a 21st year in the league, preferably with Dallas. It would be hard to imagine Cuban not bringing him back if he wants to play.
Harrison Barnes and Dennis Smith Jr. also sat out the second night of the back-to-back, which helps explain why Orlando was able to win that game.
Those guys should be back for this game. Barnes has proven that he can carry the weight of being the top scorer on an NBA offense, even though Dallas hasn’t been a good team.
Smith Jr. has had what the organization has to view as a mild success as a rookie. He hasn’t been like Donovan Mitchell, but Smith looks like a building block going forward.
The Pistons have been eliminated from playoff contention and now the only possible goal they can play for at this point is to finish at .500. They would have to win these final four games to do so.
So after trading away a first round draft pick and some young talent, in addition to committing a whole bunch of money, to bring in Blake Griffin and make a playoff push this season, here the Pistons are.
Injuries hurt this team quite a bit, but I don’t think many would say it’s a better team than Milwaukee, or Washington, or Miami. Even if Detroit runs it back next season, which it very well may have to, there’s no guarantee it’s a playoff team. And it’s definitely not a true contender, not with the young talent on Boston, Philly and others.
So Detroit can try and finish the season with a .500 record to salvage any last sliver of respect, but there is a long offseason ahead that probably won’t yield much to make fans feel any better about the future.
