First, the Pistons blew a seven-point lead with 1:40 left in their season opener to lose to the New Jersey Nets last Wednesday. They followed that up by surrendering a game-winning layup in the final seconds to the Oklahoma City Thunder at home on Friday night. The following night the Chicago Bulls, led by Derrick Rose’s 39 points, came back to win by 10 points after being down 21 in the third quarter.

Check out the highlights of Rose’s show, via NBA.com:

There seems to be a troublesome pattern here.

You would be hard-pressed to find a more “deflating manner” to lose the first three games of the season, Chris Iott of MLive.com wrote.

The Pistons haven’t struggled this much at the beginning of the season since going 0-4 to open the 1999-2000 season.
