I know most believe the Detroit Pistons aren’t a good team and all, but this is a massive number to eat with an inconsistent Knicks team. As Ive said before, you don’t know what you’re getting with the Knicks on a nightly basis, and they’re just not a team I’m eager to back, especially in the favorite role. Just because the Pistons aren’t good doesn’t mean you can throw out any number, and I’m going to fade. Give me the points.
