  • Heat, Pacers meet coming off wins

    They say timing is everything, and if that's true, Sunday's game between the Indiana Pacers and the Miami Heat just got more interesting. Both the Heat (7-8) and Pacers (8-8) came up with impressive wins on Friday night, beating teams ahead of them in the Eastern Conference standings. Miami, which has won six straight home games against Indiana, defeated the Washington Wizards, building a 25-point lead before holding on for a 91-88 victory.

  • Pistons, Pacers coming from different directions

    The Indiana Pacers and Detroit Pistons enter Friday night's game coming off entirely different experiences in their last outings. The Pacers, who have lost a few significant second-half leads this season, almost blew another before holding on to beat host Memphis 116-113 on Wednesday night. In the meantime, the Pistons trailed by 13 points entering the fourth quarter and came up short in a 99-95 loss at Milwaukee that same night.

  • Middleton scores 27, Bucks block 16 shots, top Pistons 99-95

    For only the second time this season, NBA leading scorer Giannis Antetokounmpo did not have the most points in a game for the Milwaukee Bucks. Khris Middleton knew why after he finished with a team-high 27 points and eight assists in a 99-95 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night. 'I'm just playing hard,' Middleton said.

  • Detroit Pistons Coach: Athletes Who Protest Are Patriots

    In a time where bigotry seems on the rise and commitment to racial equality on the decline, I have an obligation as a citizen to speak out and to support, in any way possible, those brave and patriotic athletes who are working to bring change to our country. Many have criticized NFL and WNBA players who have taken a knee, raised a fist or remained in the locker room during the national anthem to protest racial injustice. President Donald Trump has said that those who protest should be fired.

  • Streaking Pistons visit Bucks

    After sweeping a five-game homestand to take a commanding lead in the Central Division, the resurgent Detroit Pistons take their show on the road Wednesday night when they face the Milwaukee Bucks at the Bradley Center. At 10-3 on the season, Detroit is off to its best start since 2005-06, when the Pistons opened the season 11-2. "You just move on to the next chapter," Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said.

  • The Pistons are 10-3, and might be the surprise of the NBA

    The Detroit Pistons are heading on the road for a few days, so maybe someone will see them play. Detroit's 10-3 start, good for No. 2 in the Eastern Conference standings, is one of the biggest good surprises in the NBA through the season's first month. The Pistons already have a road win at Golden State, swept a five-game homestand — possibly to the delight of all those unoccupied red seats at Little Caesars Arena, more on that in a moment — and are off to their best start in 12 years.

  • Stan Van Gundy on protesting athletes: “These are patriots of the highest order”

    The NBA has been no stranger to the advancement of civic equality for all people, as far as sports leagues go. NBA coaches have come forward to have their voices heard, too. Steve Kerr and Gregg Popovich seem to be the ones who grab the most headlines, especially when it comes to Donald Trump, but guys like Stan Van Gundy have also used their platform to advance a social agenda.

  • Stan Van Gundy: Colin Kaepernick, player protesters are 'patriots of the highest order'

    Detroit Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy offered his most ardent support to date of athletes pursuing equality, outlining for Time magazine their rationale for protesting and his reasons for backing those efforts in a way that should make it all easier to understand for those who still oppose their actions. “These athletes and many others are risking future contracts and endorsement opportunities to speak out on issues of racial injustice because they feel duty-bound to do so,” Van Gundy wrote in his 2,000-word op-ed piece. Van Gundy credited former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick for starting a movement that has since seen many NFL and WNBA players protesting social injustice and racial inequality during the national anthem.
