    The Pistons visit Darko and the dissapointing Grizzlies on the front end of a back to back. Might be a high scoring affair as the Griz allow their opponents to score just over 105 ppg, while scoring 103 ppg.

    If we let Gasol and our ex HVC get on the offensive boards, we will be in trouble. Most of the games we lost, offensive rebounding by our opponents has always been pretty easy.

    Darko looked gimpy the last 2 games. He can't jump or shoot because of the ankle and thumb. Gasol has been playing with some passion though.

    Hopefully Tayshaun is out of his shooting slump. Good news is that this season Rip, Tay, and CB have all had stretches where their shooting has been off, yet we are stll playing .700 ball after 20 games....a testament to team depth and talent.

    nope. amir's minute's won't be increased but jmax will go for 20 and 10. i've watched memphis a lot this season and outside of darko their interior defense is very suspect. if darko is checking jmax look for a lot of tip dunks from jmax as darko usually helps the perimeter players who can't stop dribble penetration.

    If Maxey continues his pattern of getting into early foul trouble when he starts AJ could get some non-garbage time burn tonight. Nazmo better be ready to bring his A game vs Darko.

    lmao, reminds me of a post basketbills made in response to the legendary "half court shot" post on the DetNews. It was at least PG-13. :)

    I won't be around tonight, so would one of the good staff folks open chat for the game please? :)

    Really looking forward to seeing, JuanCarlosNavarro, Rudy Gay Vs. Tayshaun and DMC. If Sheed doesn't play I hope that AJ gets some serious burn tonight, this game will be played too fast for Nazr. I also feel as if this is a team where Flip Jr could be very effective.

    I give up on Amir. No matter how many points NazMo gives the other team, Flip will never play him.

    Pistons started off hot tonight, up 37-22 after the first quarter, but ended up with a fairly lackluster win as the Grizzlies somehow stayed in it for most of the 4th quarter, despite never getting closer than 8. Rip hit a bunch of big shots in the 4th to keep the lead up, and then CB got it done once he came back in late after Lindsey almost singlehandedly kept Memphis in it. Darko was hot early, 6-10 in the first quarter, but he barely did anything the rest of the game.

    Flip subbed in the 2nd half assuming a blowout on the horizon. Bad move. Mins to AA and FlipJr in the 2nd half would have produced a blowout, since we didn't get a blowout....as the team began settling for outside Jumpers...a clear sign of fatigue....no AA in the 2nd half, even though he was AWESOME in the 1st half.....:director:......HEY FLIP!!
    .........:gun1::nerd2:....get a sub pattern for the 2nd half, we're not going to blow away every team.

    Obviously....I'll prove DMC's contribution once I watch the tape 2x's in slow motion, frame by frame.
