The Pistons are having a tough week. Not only have they lost six straight games, but their four-game west coast road trip has gotten off to a shaky start. Kicking off their trip Sunday against the Clippers, the Pistons didn’t only get crushed 129-97, but Brandon Knight was on the wrong end of the “Dunk of the Year”, and Greg Monroe called out his teammates after the ‘embarrassing’ loss. Just when they needed things to turn around in Utah, the bad luck continued as Knight sprained his ankle, the Pistons lost 103-90, and even worse, they were forced to take cold showers after the game.
When you’re cold, you’re cold, and the Detroit Pistons, already down two starters Monday, found an additional irritant when they didn’t have hot water for their post-game showers.
