Just how good will the Detroit Pistons be this season?

The answer to that question starts with another question, how healthy will they be? Beyond that unknown, they have an interesting set of players: Blake Griffin as the focal point of the offense, Andre Drummond at center, and Reggie Jackson at the point. How to fit them and the role players together is a challenge for new coach Dwane Casey.

One bit of good news: Blake Griffin looked sharp at the UCLA run going on right now.

Turns out Griffin can still throw it down on the court, not just at the comedy club.

He’s an underrated passer, and teams have to respect his jumper (even if you’d rather have him take that than drive the lane). With him at the heart of this offense, the Pistons could be better than expected.

It’s a hopeful sign for Pistons fans.
