Stan Van Gundy has just about had it with his Pistons. The Detroit Pistons followed a very, very bad loss on Tuesday to the worst team in the NBA with an even worse defeat on Wednesday, leaving head coach Stan Van Gundy wondering if his team’s even got enough fight left in it to cross the finish line in the race for the Eastern Conference’s eighth and final playoff spot.

Through it all, though, there has remained the possibility that the Warriors’ problems had as much to do with an especially difficult stretch of the schedule — eight games in 13 days, all in different cities — as they did with the loss of such a terrific player.
