SHAWN WINDSOR:Isaiah Stewart’s blood saved him from major problems after the Pistons-Lakers game
Rated ROOKIES:Why the Pistons ‘Cunningham are behind the Cavs’ Mobley on the NBA rookie rankings
Game notes: As the Pistons approach the quarter-mark of the 2021-22 season – they get 20 games on Sunday against the Lakers, also at the Staples Center – they appear to be heading for another high lottery pick, which is No. 4 in the odds of the election No. 1, two games after 2-16 Houston Rockets.
Still, there is plenty to thank for, starting with 2021 No. 1 overall choice Cade Cunningham. You may have heard of him? After a slow start, the Oklahoma State product looks to find its NBA battle; on Sunday, he lined up with a triple-double with 13 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists against the Los Angeles Lakers. He came close Wednesday in the Pistons’ loss to the Milwaukee Bucks with nine points, eight rebounds and seven assists. However, Cunningham still need to work on his shot as he is 11-for-41 (26.8%) off the pitch during his last three games. Another thing to be thankful for: Second-year striker Isaiah Stewart, who returns from a two-game quarantine today after trying to fight … yes, almost everyone but most LeBron James last Sunday at Little Caesars Arena.
LEARNING CONDITIONS:The Pistons are lucky to have Cunningham. He again showed why in the Stewart-LeBron mess
If you feel nostalgic for the Pistons’ last playoff appearance, however, the Clippers are the team you need to see: They feature ex-Pistons Reggie Jackson, Luke Kennard and Marcus Morris, who get solid minutes as Paul George’s supporting role. Jackson averages 18.3 points per game. match at 40.3% shooting, while Morris has 9.7 points per. match and Kennard at 9.9. (In total, the Clippers have seven players with an average of at least seven points, but less than 11, to go with Jackson and George’s 26.4.)
One thing we will soon be nostalgic about: The name of the Clippers ‘and Lakers’ home, which is to be changed to “Crypto.com Arena” on December 25th. The Pistons get another game in the arena: This Sunday, when they take on the Lakers at. 21.30 Do we get “LeBron vs. Beef Stew II?”
