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
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.
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.

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!
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.
Warriors forward, Draymond Green, and Wizards, Bradley Beal Were both ejected in last nights game after getting into an altercation on the court.
Check out this video of what happened:
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.
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!
Warriors guard, Stephen Curry, and Warriors forward, Kevin Durant were both ejected late in Saturday nights game against Memphis.
The 2 time MVP, Stephen Curry was ejected for throwing his mouth Gaurd after he took some contact and there was no call. The ref assumed he was throwing his mouth guard at him so he ejected Curry right away. Durant quickly went to the ref and said some words before getting ejected.
When Curry was asked about the incident, Curry was quick to answer to ESPN with “I didn’t throw my mouthpiece at the ref, I got better aim than that. I threw it out of frustration.”
Curry finished the game with 37 points and tweeted after the game about the incident:
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.
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.
