The Pistons got off to a poor start out of the all-star break with a home loss against the Boston Celtics on Friday night.
Blake Griffin scored 17, Andre Drummond had 15 points and 17 rebounds and Ish Smith led the team with 20 points on 9-for-11 from the field but the Celtics shot more than 43 percent from three and used a dominant second quarter to pull away early.
Reggie Jackson continues to progress from a serious ankle injury that has cost him close to three months now. There is no timetable for his return but Jackson has been cleared to run and shoot.
Ish Smith has looked good in Jackson’s absence, though. Smith isn’t a top-tier point guard, don’t get me wrong. But he also looks better than a backup, too.
Smith is averaging 13.6 points per game in the month of February on 53 percent shooting from the field. He’s not much of a three-point shooter but has made 50 percent of his attempts this month, including a wild heave that came after some nifty dribbling at a buzzer last night.
Charlotte came out hot in its first game back since the break and downed the Wizards on the road, 122–105.
Washington was on a back-to-back but it also won at Cleveland the night before. Frank Kaminsky scored 23 off the bench and Kemba Walker led the team with 24.
Washington actually shot better from the field than Charlotte but the Hornets won the turnover battle, 14–8 and out-rebounded Washington by five, despite Walker leading the team with seven.
It’s probably too late for Charlotte but the Hornets are going to try and make a push nonetheless. They aren’t in the business of tanking, at least not this season. Charlotte is ranked high by many predictive models and it still has 20-something games to make good on those numbers and sneak into the playoffs.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Charlotte Hornets NBA Prediction: Charlotte wins at home.
I’m buying Charlotte as a team that could come out and play well in the next ten games or so. I’m not on board with this team for the rest of the season but a little run coming out of the break wouldn’t surprise me. I definitely like the Hornets on Sunday.
