The 2018-19 Pistons, not the “Bad Boys” Pistons or the “Going to Work” Pistons, presently sit at the top of the NBA in technical fouls with 15.
Andre Drummond leads the team and the league with eight while Blake Griffin and backup point guard Ish Smith have three. Dwane Casey addressed the situation after the Pistons win on Monday and again on Tuesday morning. “Officials are human,” he said. “We talked this morning about treating them with respect and using the human element as far as talking to them the way you want them to talk to you. That’s all you can ask.” The Pistons are off to a nice start this year and unless you are playing in a fantasy league where technicals or ejections count, you shouldn’t really worry about Drummond and the rest of the Pistons being unable to keep their composure.
