    The Pistons will be playing their 4th game in 5 nights, all of them on the road, and the Knicks are...well...the Knicks. Will this game make the ugly win in Charlotte look like one of the greatest games in NBA history? Looks like it could be a rough night, regardless of the final result.

    Lots depends on how bench performances. Not sure starters would have much interest in playing vs. Knicks, especially after the minutes they logged against Bobcats.

    I hear New York has a nice State Fair..........Sorry..:)

    If Flip is really upset about 29 3s, he could always send a message this game to those players. Start by Sitting Hamilton for the 1st period.......

    Sit Rip/ CB and Dice/ Sheed after 6 minutes of the 1st quarter I would say Flip is already sort of sending a message to them but Sit Rip in the 1st quarter??? Flip Sr do not have the guts.

    It will be an ugly game for sheed & co. tonight. Hope they can get a win.
    Otherwise, it will be a long day at work.

    Three quarters of that was more than enough of me. That's the worst game they've played in years.

    Maybe we'll get active at the trade deadline now.

    Something wasn't right, and I'm not buying fatigue.

    Yup. Detroit media/columnists need to hit these boys hard.

    I get the same feeling. This looked like a team that "quit" not a team that got outplayed.

    Our lack of a center is really starting to hurt us.

    Well what had happen was...

    The Pistons knew they were given a gift last night so they made sure that they didn't win tonight and save Zeke's job...:) 65 points is enough to gurantee that the other team will win.

    What happen to Tayshaun of the dead?> 0-10, no points, 3 boards and 0 assists. -23 in the +/-

    Here are the hard fact folks on the 30.7% shooting.
    Gay 0-10,
    Ripped 1-7,
    Stunkey 1-5
    Allfull 1-6
    Minxiel 1-3
    Briczek 1-2
    Fibbio 1-7
    All Jayes 0-5
    Player of the game AMir 3-3 who scored the last five and prevented the Pistons from setting a new franchise low in points

    As bad as the bench was they still scored 23 points in the garbage time 4th qtr which was better than what starters did in any of the previous qtrs... half of those were on free throws as at least they know how to go to the paint

    I see it more as a lack of a slasher and/or proper play calling to get high percentage shots. When this team struggles, they ALWAYS rely on the outside shot. We just do not have a coach that understands when the team needs to quit with the jump shot BS and attack the rim.

    We have a coach who admits he doesn't care where the points come from. The Pistons shoot jumpers when they're tired, or when the defense gets tight or when they're cold. Just goes to show you how little emphasis Flip actually puts on the guys to get points in the paint. We're dead last in the points in the paint this year - and last year too, iirc.

    When you are averaging close to 100 points a game and shoot only 30% against the Knicks and miss the Pistons all time low for points in a game by one point, it has nothing to do with taking jump shots and Flipper's offense.

    They layed down on Flipper just like last night, but tonight was even more so. They don't want small ball.

    :hoops:
