The Pistons are within 1 1/2 games of the Atlanta Hawks, who sit in the No. 4 spot, which would give them home-court advantage for a first-round playoff series. With their 13-5 home record — and 8-11 road record — getting home court advantage has to be the immediate goal if they’re going to make any kind of postseason run.
The Detroit Pistons are quietly making a little run toward making the playoffs for their play this season, led by center Andre Drummond and guard Reggie Jackson. The Pistons are 21-16 at this point in the season compared to their record of 13-24 last year at this time. That is an eight-game turnaround. Not bad!! We will continue to keep on eye on them as the season nears the midpoint. So far the results are positive for the new look Pistons.
