After getting some rest in last week, the Detroit Pistons faced up to a packed schedule of four games this week. Although there was plenty to remember on the court, this week will likely be remembered for events off the court. Maurice Cheeks was fired as head coach after 50 games in charge and now we await the beginning of yet another new era for Pistons basketball.
The week began with a visit to Florida for the third meeting of the season with the defending champions, the Miami Heat. The Pistons remained in the Sunshine State after the conclusion of that game, as they faced off against the Orlando Magic for the second time in a week. Returning home after that one, the Pistons hosted the Nets looking to win their third game against Brooklyn this season and put themselves in position for a season sweep. While finally, a busy week would come to its conclusion with a home game against Brian Shaw‘s Denver Nuggets.
The Pistons would finish the week 2-2.
