Pistons spell Andre Drummond's name wrong on jersey
Tuesday November 11th, 2014

The Pistons’ first misstep on Monday night came before their game against the Bulls even began. At no point between its stitching and its unveiling on the hardwood did anyone on Detroit’s equipment staff notice that Andre Drummond’s jersey wasn’t quite right:

Unfortunately, “DRUMMUND” isn’t quite as perfect nor as symbolic as “BALTCHE” – the botched jersey worn by the error-prone Andray Blatche in his final season with the Wizards. Detroit, unlike Washington, quickly remedied its problem. By the second quarter Drummond’s misprinted jersey had already been swapped out for a proper replacement. Drummond himself, however, sat in an offensive funk throughout the first half while going 0-for-5 from the field.

More broadly: Detroit, already 2-4, trailed Chicago 60-44 by halftime. Everything is coming up Drummund.
