Pistons’ Jackson: ‘It’s been a season from hell so far’


Reggie Jackson has not played in all 42 games this season (far from it, actually), but the Detroit Pistons point guard is beginning to feel his teammates’ frustrations.

The Pistons had just lost a 110-77 game to the Utah Jazz on Friday, their third straight loss and second blowout in as many nights on national television, when Jackson was peppered with questions about Detroit’s struggling defense.

“It has to be fixed — or it’s going to be a long (expletive) season,” Jackson said. “It’s been a season from hell so far. So it’s going to be a long-(expletive) season if we don’t find a way to fix it.”
