A 14-6 start had people going nuts about the Detroit Pistons. Will their head coach Stan Van Gundy win coach of the year? Can the Pistons get Tobias Harris in the All-Star Game after his hot start? Is Andre Drummond the best center in the NBA? Will Avery Bradley win Defensive Player of the Year? Have we been wrong about Reggie Jackson all along? Just seven consecutive losses later and no one has answers for their sudden spiral back towards mediocrity.
While their first four losses were all on the road, they continued to lose in the comfort of their home stadium. The core four for Detroit, Reggie Jackson, Avery Bradley, Tobias Harris and Andre Drummond, have struggled in December. All four have seen a drop in their statistics and at this point, Stan Van Gundy is out of answers. He expects more from his four best players.
Following comes from James Edwards of The Athletic Detroit.
Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley, Reggie Jackson and Andre Drummond: "In my opinion, these are our four best players. … They have to play better. … If you want the money, want the credit when things go well, you have to have some accountability."
