Thirty Second Half Story Arcs For 30 NBA Teams

Jeff Teague

Detroit Pistons – After letting go of Josh Smith‘s contract the Pistons have played better, going a respectable 16-10 since Dec. 22. The Pistons are 21-33 and that puts them out of the top eight in the East with three tough home games (Washington, Chicago and Cleveland) out of the gate in the second half. D.J. Augustin has performed decently since Brandon Jennings was lost for the season but can he keep up the 20.3 points per game of his last 10 games. Also is this stretch the last Piston fans see Greg Monroe before free agency when he is expected to find many suitors?
