Brown highlighting some of that "improved" ballhandling this year.  :P

After a couple good games coming off the bench, he's been trash the last two games and thus far tonight, too.
Kinda harsh to say Brown has been trash tonight. He has barely touch the ball, missed a layups and turned over the ball once. That's a slow start not being trash

Okay, okay - he's been trash in a small sample size  :P
I think part of Brown's problem is how poorly he is being used off the bench. Yesterday and today he played the last 4-5 minutes of the 1st and touched the ball only 3 times per quarter. 3 TIMES. That's bad. Then the second starts and he starts to press. When Williams was in there Smart tried to get him a lob twice. He never passed the ball to Brown once.

I guess Griffin is allowed to travel.

He’s a young player that’s pressing because of this stacked roster. The same goes for Rozier and Tatum at times.

Smart was yelling at Brown a couple games ago.  I wonder if there's anything to that.

We really miss Horford against the Pistons in particular.

That was a fairly effective stretch of ball there for Brown. Only two points but 2 steals, big block, 2 assists nice defense.

I guess for some people that = trash

I mean, the dude was getting constantly scored on, blew a wide open fastbreak due to poor ballhandling, and had two TOs that made up for his two steals.

Not sure why some people on here are so overprotective of Brown and get butthurt when he gets rightly criticized. Just because he's played less bad than he has the past two games doesn't mean he's still not playing like trash.

How the eff was that not a foul for Kyrie?? This tall bald ref is so bad. Such incompetence and inconsistency.

We're in great shape all things considered.  The Pistons shot 7-14 from 3 and only have a 1 point lead.  I doubt they shoot that well from 3 in the 2nd half.
