Are The Pistons A Legit Team?

The Pistons came into the season with very low expectations and were not expected to have a good season, but after 13 games, the Piston have proved the majority of NBA fans wrong.

Detroit is 2nd in the east with a 10-3 record and has been lead by multiple players to get where they are, one of them being Tobias Harris who has averaged 20.1 ppg so far this season. Another big surprise to me was Drummond. Drummond has had over 12 rebounds in all 13 NBA games this season and leads the league in rebounds. Many Pistons fans, including me, were hoping Drummond would get traded, but it looks like the Pistons made the right choice to keep him, as he has played with more confidence and has had a better free throw percentage.

This offseason, the Pistons picked up shooting guard, Avery Bradley, who has also made a big difference in the Pistons gameplay. Getting Avery was a great move and has definitely improved our defense.

But are the Pistons a legit team? In my opinion, I think yes. I’m a Pistons fan, so you probably thinking this is all biased, but with all that aside,  I think the Pistons can make it to the playoffs for sure

Duke vs Michigan State Preview, Picks, and Everything You Need To Know

The No. 1 vs the No. 2 team… It doesn’t get much better than that. The Duke Blue Devils will be facing the Michigan State Spartans in a college basketball battle that will be taking place in Chicago for the Champions Classic. Tuesday’s matchup will be only the 42nd 1 v 2 college basketball game of all time.

Michigan State and Duke both have some of the best players in the country, but there are two that specifically stand out: Grayson Allen, out of Duke, and Miles Bridges, out of MSU. Both players are contenders for player of the year and could be game changers on Tuesday night.

My Pick

I’m a big Michigan State fan so of course, I’m going to have to go with MSU on this one mostly because I have lots of confidence in Miles and I expect him to have at least a 20 point game.

Game 5 Was Crazy.

The World Series has been a great one this year and we just keep witnessing better and better games. The Astros beat the Dodgers 13-12 in a 10 inning game that lasted over 5 hours!

Game Summary

Like I said in the title, this game was crazy. In the fourth, the Astros were down 4-0 with less than a 15% chance of winning the game, but they didn’t give up and got to a point where they were up 12-9 with a 97 percent chance win probability.  The Dodgers kept the game going and rallied back to tie the game at 12-12 to send the game to extra innings. Bregman finished extra innings with a walk-off hit to left center as Fisher scored. The Astros won 13-12.

The game finished off with a total of 25 runs, and according to ESPN, the 25 points scored, was the second most of any world series only behind game 4 of the 1993 World Series.

 

Jow Flaccos Drop From Success

Joe Flacco was a Super Bowl MVP in 2013 and it’s halfway through the  2017-18 season now and he isn’t playing like how he used to…

Joe Flacco ranks pretty badly in the majority of his QB statistics, according to ESPN.com, he is 28th in passing yards (1,189), 28th in interceptions (8), 32nd in yards per attempts (5.3) and some other pretty bad stats that I don’t even want to mention… that’s how bad they are.

Flacco is reminding me of Eli Manning at the moment as they are both good QBs who are having the worst years of their careers, but for Eli this may be getting closer to the end of his career, but for Flacco I think he has a good amount of years left in him, besides those terrible stats, I think he can bounce back next year from his tough year he is having now,.I have confidence in you, Flacco!

Joe Flacco isn’t too old at the age of 32 but is playing like he’s 42 at the moment leading his team to a 3-4 start, which isn’t too bad, but I know he can definitely do better than that. The Ravens play tonight against the Dolphins at  8:25 on CBS.

My World Series Predictions

The Dodgers are facing the  Astros in this year’s world series and I know it going to be a good one.

The World Series starts on Tuesday night, where you can watch the game on Fox, and before it starts I wanted to make my predictions, and add a few opinions in their.

My Prediction

Dodgers in 6 Games

The Dodgers are rested and ready. They finished the summer with baseballs best record and have gotten the job done this postseason. Also, I’m not so much of a baseball expert, but according to some ESPN experts, they picked the Dodgers to win.

Who I Want To Win

I want the Dodgers to win, not because I’m a Dodgers fan ( I’m a Tigers fan) but because their owner is a Michigan State Alumni (Magic Johnson) who lead MSU to the ’79 NCAAM championship where MSU won.

If I can root for MSU in any way, I always do!

Dusty Baker Won’t Be Back In Washington

The Nationals announced on Friday that Dusty Baker will not be back as a manager in Washington.

The Nationals let Baker go after he lead them to the playoffs in his two years at manager but failed to win a series back to back years.

He finished with a .593 winning percentage going 192-132. His winning percentage was the best by a Washington Manager in Nationals history.

The team wrote in a letter saying  “He is one of the true gentlemen in our sport, and we thank him for the successes that we enjoyed together over the last two years. We wish him nothing but the best going forward.”

Bakers contract was ending at the end of the season along with some of the other coaches on the Nationals roster.

Kansas City Takes Second Straight Loss With Raiders Game Winning Touchdown

The Kansas City Chiefs started off the 2017 season with a 5-0 record, since then they’ve lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers and lost their second game last night to the Raiders.

Both Derek Carr and Alex Smith had great games after they both threw 3 touchdowns each and 0 interceptions. Wider Reciever, Amari Cooper was unstoppable last night and that was a big game changer as he caught 11 passes for 210 yards along with two touchdowns.

It was a close most of the game but coming into the 4th quarter, The Chiefs had a two-score lead at 30-21. Toward the beginning of the fourth, the Raiders added another field goal to make the score 24-30 with the Chief winning.

It came down to the last few seconds… The Raiders were down 30-24 but had the ball at the two-yard line. Derek Carr threw a quick two-yard pass to Michael Crabtree for a touchdown to make the score 30-30 as time expired. The Raiders kicker finished the game by making the PAT. 31-30 Raiders.

Video: Eminem Welcomes The Pistons Back To Detroit

The Detroit Rapper, Eminem, was at the Detroit Pistons Little Ceasers Arena Debut after the Pistons spent almost 40 years playing in the suburbs of Detroit.

Eminem was given the mic, for a pre-game speech and had a chance to say something to all the Pistons Fans. Eminem Hyped up Detroit by saying  “Detroit, welcome them back for the first time in over 40 years to our city, to my city, to your city! Make some noise for the Detroit Pistons. Let’s go!”

Big Sean was also at the game, who got to hang out with Eminem where they got a chance to get their picture taken:
