Game notes: After focusing on improving their 3-point shooting in the offseason, it has been another rough start from beyond the arc for the Pistons, whose 32.7% ranks 26th of 30 teams after Friday’s action. That was highlighted by Friday’s loss in New York, in which the Pistons shot 7-for-31 from outside. Even Bojan Bogdanovic, who had an otherwise solid night with 25 points in 34 minutes, couldn’t hit his 3s; he went 0-for-5 against the Knicks.
On the other end of the spectrum are the Celtics, who are third in the league in hitting 38.8% en route to an 9-3 record that’s second-best in the Eastern Conference. So much for stumbles under interim coach Joe Mazzulla (a former assistant who stepped in when Ime Udoka was suspended by the team for the season for an alleged inappropriate relationship with a team employee).
Jayson Tatum appears to be taking the next step this season, as he’s averaging 31.4 points and seven rebounds a game. That includes a stretch of three straight games with at least 30 points — he had 34 against the Nuggets on Friday — and seven games of at least 30 this season.
After Saturday’s matchup, the Pistons welcome the Toronto Raptors to LCA on Monday before starting a six-game Western Conference swing. The Celtics, meanwhile, will head home to take on the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday.
