Dwayne Casey left Toronto but he didn’t get far, sneaking across the border to Detroit. There is mre than enough talent in MoTown for the Pistons to thrive under new leadership this season. So far so good.
Chicago might wind up being the worst team in the Eastern Conference. They are super young and only time will tell if they are really building something.
The biggest thing for Detroit coming into the season mightnot have been the coach but a full, and hopefully healthy, season from Blake Griffin. I am not his biggest fan but there is no disputing he is a super productive player.
Pairing Griffin with Andre Drummond make the Pistons reasonbly formidable up front. Drummond might never be a great shooter but he still dominares wit his abiity on the glass and after making 60% of his free throws you can’t employ that hack strategy as much.
Another key will be the health of Reggie Jackson this season. He looked a little rusty in the opener but he still scored 19 points. If he is on the court with the above he gives them a diversity of scoring options. I love his confidence.
It was only the first game and they won but I thought they would be a little more dominant against Brooklyn. Giving up just 100 points looks pretty good but the shooting was off. It is intereting that Drummond took the most shots on the team.
I like Detroit in this spot a lot. The fact that they lost against the sporead might create a buying opportunity.
Zack Lavine sored 30 points in their game against Philly. On this team I can see how he might be a serious threat to win a scoring title. There is not a lot of scoring talent on this team and there is going to be no reason for him to be shy. Still he is not an elite talent to me.
Bobby Portis has been with the Bulls for a while now and maybe no is the time for a breakout. He has 20/11 in their opening loss and I can see him maintaining that pace for the season. The rest of the frontcourt is a little lame but there is intrigue around a couple of former Duke Blue Devils – Jabari Parker and rookie Wendell Carter.
There is no way that Chicago comes into this season with any illusion as to where they are in the pecking order of the the NBA. They are young and I am not sure who is going to prove to be more than what they have already shown.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Chicago Bulls Prediction:
Fading the Bulls is definitely going to b a thing this season. There might not be a worse team in the league and its not like they have a coaching advantage or any particular strength.
This number looks like a steal to me. If this game was being played in a couple of weeks it would probably be double that.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Detroit -3.5
Detroit should be able to coast through this one. Look for all of their stars to be strong and overwhlem the Bulls.
