Goin’ to work!

That was the theme of the legendary 2003-04 Detroit Pistons who shocked the world by winning their third NBA title over the heavily favored Los Angeles Lakers in a mere five games. It was their blue collar attitude that captured the Motor City’s attention and hearts, and will forever hold a special place in Detroit sports history.

During halftime of the Pistons matchup against the Charlotte Hornets, several members of the 2004 champions were on hand to mark the 15th anniversary of their title – including Rip Hamilton, coach Larry Brown, Chauncey Billups, and Ben Wallace.

Watch as 2004 Finals MVP Chauncey Billups expresses his love for Detroit!

Deee-troit Basketball!

Dwane Casey gives update on Blake Griffin

The Detroit Pistons will once again be without star forward Blake Griffin Wednesday night at home against the Indiana Pacers. He’s already missed the past two games after experiencing knee soreness during shootaround before Detroit’s matchup against the Portland Trail Blazers.

During his pre-game press conference, head coach Dwane Casey provided an update on Griffin’s condition.

“No, it’s not structural (Griffin’s injury),” he said. “He’s working, trying to get it back to where he is comfortable with it. He’s still not comfortable with it so the medical people made a decision to hold him until he is comfortable and can go with it.

With a record of 39-38, the Pistons currently occupy the 6th seed in the Eastern Conference, a half-game ahead of the Brooklyn Nets and a full game ahead of the 8th place Miami Heat.

Reggie Jackson’s sick crossover

What a sick move!

Detroit Pistons guard Reggie Jackson absolutely shattered the ankles of Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner during the third quarter of Wednesday night’s game at Little Caesars Arena. An absolutely filthy crossover sent Turner tumbling to the floor right before Jackson drained a jumper.

Savagery from Jackson!
