Detroit looked good in getting its first win of the season Friday against Boston, 96–93.
The Pistons took advantage of a listless start by the Celtics and built up a huge lead before the Celtics stormed back.
Detroit managed to hold on, however, which will built confidence moving forward.
It’s an extremely young team, especially with Blake Griffin out of the lineup. He missed the game against the Celtics in concussion protocol following a harsh elbow from James Wiseman.
Killian Hayes is the starting point guard as a 19-year-old rookie. He played professionally in France before the Pistons drafted him. He looks good but it’s also apparent he will get no respect from the officials and established opponents will take advantage with rough play.
Another rookie, Saddiq Bey, also started against Boston and had a big game, making three-pointers and playing good defense on the other end.
Jerami Grant is the star with Griffin out, however. He’s averaging over 20 points per game this season, as well as rebounding and defending.
The Pistons lack outside shooting and won’t win many games this season, with or without Griffin, but it seems they are building something for the future.
They play Boston again on Sunday before traveling to Milwaukee for the second night of a back-to-back.
The Bucks are all about the present. They are off to an uneven start this season with blowouts going both for and against them.
In fact, after losing a one-point opener to Boston, Milwaukee has defeated Golden State by 39, lost to the Knicks by 20, defeated Miami by 47, lost to Miami by 11 the very next night, and, most recently, defeated Chicago by 30.
The loss to New York may seem less puzzling when you see the Knicks shot 16-for-27 from three-point range in that one.
The Bucks should have little trouble topping their division again this season. All the focus is on the playoffs, a long-term outlook on a short-term window.
The bench is key. Bryn Forbes, former San Antonio Spur and Michigan State Spartan, scored a season-high 18 off the bench against the Bulls.
Bobby Portis, who has bounced around the league of late but has proven he can compete with some of the better players, scored double-digits off the bench for a fifth consecutive game.
And then there is Giannis’ little brother, Thanasis, who has played nearly 15 minutes per game over the last three.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction: Milwaukee blowout.
I’m genuinely watching Detroit this season as a team of interest.
I also believe it will take its fair share of beatings.
This could be one of them, on the road in a back-to-back against a team like the Bucks.
Griffin’s status will be important but plan on laying the points with Milwaukee.
