08:11 AM ET 12.30 | Watching the Cavaliers do what they liked near the rim didn't sit well with Lawrence Frank. He was mad at his Pistons team Wednesday for allowing the show to go on. "We are a no-middle, no-paint team," Frank said. "We got to defend the paint first." The Pistons hardly have done that their first two games. ... Forward Tayshaun Prince admits the Pistons are confused in their defensive rotations. Regarded as one of the best defenders in the game -- when healthy -- Prince said he's unsure what to do at times as well. "It is going to take a while for guys to learn this system, know where they are supposed to be," Prince said. "There is no flow now and you can tell that guys are thinking out there rather than reacting."

I can't believe they hired Lawrence Frank as coach ... that guy is going to ride his 17 game winning streak with Jersey to another coaching job, after he fizzles out in the Motor City.

Detroit is going to get pushed around all season-long. At least Brandon Knight looks like a stud.

didn't you just sign stucky to a decent amount of coin?

It's 3 years. He'll be traded soon I suspect. If not, they will be on the floor together.
