Wednesday December 6, finds Central Division rivals the Detroit Pistons and Milwaukee Bucks facing each other. Both squads lost their prior games.
After a solid November the Pistons have hit a rough patch losing three in a row. Granted the teams are all playoff seeds (Wizards, 76ers, Spurs). But, Washington and San Antonio were missing their top stars.
Meanwhile, Milwaukee is enjoying success (8-4) since adding Eric Bledsoe to the Bucks.
Milwaukee holds the all-time record 128-111 and has won four of the past six meetings.
Detroit beat the Warriors and Celtics, but other than those two victories haven’t beaten the elite teams in the Association. Which begs the question are the Pistons an upper tier squad or a team destined for the middle of the pack?
Leading the Pistons in stat categories are Andre Drummond, Reggie Jackson and Tobias Harris while Avery Bradley affects all aspects of the game. Drummond is the main man in rebounds, steals, blocks and field goal percentage.
Jackson tops the team in assists and Harris in points.
On nights when one member of this foursome fails to be a factor the team struggles. Notably, Drummond has shown growth across the board, but arguably his playmaking and assists may be even more impressive than his free throw shooting.
While the Pistons seeding is in line with what was expected last season there is still uncertainty if the team is elite. It feels like they might still be one player away from greatness.
After the close loss to the Spurs on Monday the Pistons will be intent on ending the losing streak, but will need to do so without the services of Jon Leuer who received an injection to his injured ankle.
So far the Eric Bledsoe experiment has been an overwhelming success with the team making huge strides particularly on defense. The big concern is how much difficulty the team is having scoring.
Presumably the Bucks felt adding Bledsoe would improve their stellar offense, but the opposite has been true with the squad regressing since he joined the team.
To help with the issue, Tony Snell is back in the starting rotation with the goal of having three potential three point shooters in Snell, Bledsoe and Kris Middleton to spread the floor.
This allows Giannis Antetokounmpo the choice of scoring or playing facilitator. In the loss to Boston Antetokounmpo produced his third 40 point game of the season. In his 40 point night vs. Cleveland the Bucks also lost.
Moving forward perhaps this dynamic will lead to opposing teams focusing on the Greek’s teammates and letting him score.
Entering the week the Bucks were on a three game win streak, but two of those victories came against the lackluster Kings. In fact the Bledsoe era of 8-4 includes arguably just two wins against top competition – the Spurs and Pistons.
