It was an ugly scene at Little Caesars Arena during the first half of Tuesday night’s game between the Detroit Pistons and Memphis Grizzlies. The fact that Memphis was missing eight regulars from their lineup didn’t stop the players on the floor from building a staggering 22 point lead over Detroit, leading to a chorus of boos from the fans in attendance.

However, the Pistons were able to mount a comeback for a dramatic 100-93 victory to inch closer to the Eastern Conference’s playoff spot. Pistons center Andre Drummond had himself a good second half, with a renewed effort on the defensive end.

“I made a decision to start trapping in the second half,” Drummond explained. “I told (assistant) coach Sweeney – ‘I think we need to blitz them and make them speed up the game a little…..we made them play our game, we made them pick the pace up and they weren’t ready for it.”

Following the win, Drummond took to Twitter to post a celebratory tweet:

But apparently, one fan wasn’t entertained.

Was Drummond’s response justified?

The Pistons, on the other hand, are hoping to extend their season by beating the Knicks and qualifying for the NBA Playoffs. With a win or a Charlotte Hornets loss, the Pistons would squeak into the playoffs.

Knicks point guard Dennis Smith Jr. realizes his team will not be going to the postseason but he intends on doing whatever he can to ruin the Pistons night.

“We just want to keep they (bleep) out,” Dennis Smith Jr. told MSG Network after his team’s win Tuesday night. “We ain’t really got too much to play for other than pride right now, so we don’t want to lay down.

“If we can ruin someone else’s season, we’ll do it.” 

Nation, do you think the Pistons will get the job done on their own or will they have to rely on a Hornets loss to get into the playoffs?
