On Sunday night, April 24 at the Palace of Auburn Hills the Detroit Pistons got swept by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first round of the 2016 playoffs. It was a hard fought series, but the LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Love were just too much for the young Pistons to handle. The Pistons did everything they could from the starters all the way to the last man on the bench.The Pistons did have great play from all of starters though. Andre Drummond did amazing things, Marcus Morris and Tobias Harris did an exceptional job while having to guard LeBron and Love, and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope led the team in scoring averaging 15 a game had to guard one the best players in the league Kyrie Irving. His partner Reggie Jackson was throwing perfect passes finding open shooters. The Cavs are one of the best teams in the league and for the Pistons to be able to hang around in all four games, this is a bright future if the core stays together. This was many of the players first time in the playoffs and it was Detroit’s first playoff run since 2009. Their coach Stan Van Gundy did a heck of a job coaching the team from 32 wins last season to 48.

All in all, the Detroit Pistons will be one of the best teams in the NBA because they are young, they have great talent on their roster, and they were learning all year long on how to win which will help in the long run. The NBA better be prepared because the Pistons are on the charge and are very Hungry!
