Why the Pistons could surprise in the East

Detroit has played a fairly average schedule, which is a good sign that this level of play will sustain. Fans might just enjoy another playoff appearance, but don't let expectations get too lofty.

Drummond dominating the glass

Andre Drummond pulled down 15 rebounds in the Pistons' 107-100 loss to the Pacers on Friday, giving him 236 total boards this season.
