A telling quote from forward Jonas Jerebko after the Pistons lost to the Clippers yesterday to bring their record to 1-3 last week during a West Coast road trip: "I felt like we had it [Sunday], but I felt like we had every game on this road trip. We could have been 4-0." Ah, yes. Hasn't it been that kind of year for Detroit, though? They play pretty hard and, in some cases, actually look pretty decent on the court. But their record just doesn't reflect it. —Chris Yuscavage
