The Detroit Pistons came out of the All-Star break still trying to get accustomed to hearing interim head coach John Loyer’s voice leading the huddles. The team he inherited from Maurice Cheeks had very little problems scoring and if anything was to blame for the results that led to Cheeks demise, it would have to be defense. At the moment it doesn’t look like there’s a particularly quick fix though, as Loyer is facing all the same problems as his predecessor on that end of the floor.
The week began on Tuesday with the visit of Steve Clifford’s drastically improved Charlotte Bobcats, while the Pistons then returned the visit in Charlotte the following night. Then Josh Smith once again squared up against his former team the Atlanta Hawks as they visited the state of Michigan. Before the week finally came to its close with the Dallas Mavericks in the Palace of Auburn Hills.
The Pistons went on to finish the week 1-3.
