Nets @ Pistons, 7:30 P.M. EST:
TBG Open Thread

Tonight: Following one of the worst seven-minute fourth-quarter stretches the 38-28 Brooklyn Nets have slogged through this year, getting outscored 24-9 by the Atlanta Hawks in said stretch to turn a tie game into garbage time, the Nets wipe the slate clean en route to Detroit to take on the 23-45 Detroit Pistons at 7:30 P.M. EST at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Detroit. The Pistons have lost eight straight and haven’t had rookie sensation Andre Drummond since he suffered a back injury the last time these two teams played.
