2016 Detroit Pistons Preview: November not as important as May for Reggie Jackson

Pistons’ progress comes to a halt without a major contribution from Reggie Jackson; ultimately, his value is dependent on team success. This is how it ended for Reggie Jackson last year: Down two, seven seconds remaining and with the entire floor to work with, Jackson’s top of the key three falls harmlessly short. Game. Series. Season. In Cleveland, he found a...

This means newly acquired backup Ish Smith will start for the first 20 or so games, with Ray McCallum as the backup. With Jackson’s injury, this first quarter...

1. There's hard living that's fun and hard living that's exclusively hard. Just the shape of Stan Van Gundy suggests dyspepsia.
