Andre Drummond Victim Of Equipment Staff Spelling Error (Photo)

Whoever was responsible for misspelling Andre Drummond’s name can’t blame this one on auto-correct. The Detroit Pistons center started Monday’s game against the Chicago Bulls with a jersey that read “D-R-U-M-M-U-N-D” on the back. Somewhere in the process, the “O” got swapped out for a second “U” and no one noticed until it was too late. Perhaps it was an omen...

GIF: Brandon Jennings Misses Last-Second Shot, Pistons Lose to the Jazz

Brandon Jennings scored 23 points on Sunday, but he missed a couple of key shots down the stretch in a 97-96 loss to the Utah Jazz. The Pistons put the ball in Jennings hands in the closing seconds, giving their point guard a chance to win it at the buzzer. But his floater from the top of the lane never had much of a chance — it clanked off the back of the rim, sealing Detroit’s fate.
