Los Angeles Clippers season so far

The Los Angeles Clippers have been one of the surprise teams this season. With the absence of Kawhi Leonard, most people didn’t give them any chance.

Detroit Pistons season so far 

The Detroit Pistons are having one more difficult, rebuilding season. They are currently 14th in the eastern conference and have just won four games. The Pistons are also struggling with injuries and suspensions as they have missed Killian Hayes and Isaiah Stewart. But for Detroit Trey Lyles has been emerging as a great young player. He scored 19 off the bench against the Bucks. 

But for Detroit, Cade Cuningham has been the biggest positive this season. Cade has averaged 13.1 points, 6.2 rebounds and 4.9 assists and is competing with Cleveland’s Evan Mobley and Scottie Barnes of Toronto in the rookie of the year race.
