    Coming off a huge road win at Dallas the Pistons are 4.5 underdogs to the suddenly struting Magic.
    Get your Darko T-shirts.
    The Magic are an up and coming team. The Pistons need to remind them it's a long way to the top and you must go through Detroit Basketball.

    At Orlando December 8th, 7:00PM

    TV: NBA LP, TV 20 (Detroit)


    Coming off an impressive win in Dallas last night the Pistons head to Orlando take on the surprising Orlando Magic.

    At 14-6, (7-1 at home) the Magic are in 1st place in the Southeast Division. Led by Dwight Howard and a healthy Grant Hill they will be a handful for the Pistons.

    Darko and Arroyo will want to show their ex teammates what they are missing, and the Pistons will want to continue their winning ways.

    This is the Magic`s 4th game in 6 days, and the 2nd of a back to back for Detroit. Tay logged 40 minutes last night, followed by 39 for Rip, 36 for CB, and 33 for Sheed.

    It seems as if Flip is going to a nine man rotation with J-Max being the odd man out.

    Bballjay:"That was a block"
    MotownPride:"Foul"
    Bballjay:"BLOCK!"
    MotownPride:"FOUL!"
    Bballjay:"Taste Great"
    MotownPride:"Less filling"
    Bballjay:"Pepsi!"
    MotownPride:"Coke!"
    Bballjay:"Kramer from Seinfeld sucks!"
    MotownPride:"You have a point, there."

    The Magic are at home tonight for the first time after their just-completed 6 game road trip, which was mostly out West. They went 4-1 in those west games, and then lost at Indiana two nights ago.

    I'll be getting back from travel right as the game starts, so hopefully I'll be able to check in to the chat at some point during the second half.

    chauncey hurt + lindsey hurt = dnp for will blaylock.

    sorry folks but orlando is going to beat us tonight. flip murray will continue to get exposed but flip saunders will not bench someone with the same name as him.

    look for a jmax sighting as all the bigs will be in foul trouble trying to deal with d. howard. darko will block several of his shots but that is only because jmax is rusty.

    delfino will lock up hill but we will be behind in the second half so he won't play after halftime.

    arroyo is going to go off.

    On second thought, I'm glad bballjay isn't going with me. I can see him jumping out of the stands to give Darko a hug after he scores his first two points. Then security will need to get called as bballjay refuses to release his death grip on Darko's leg.

    BTW, we win this one by 7 points.

    I hope one of those shots is not a slam, because if it is, Darko`s arm will be shattered in several places...............:eek:

    The players might not consider this a rivalry but we do. So we got a few 'active' participants in the Magic/Pistons debates to agree to recap the game through their own unique perspectives. Ebert & Rober meets Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley. :MusicBigGrin:

    I noticed that on league pass when I click info, the game description says something like "former Pistons Arroyo, Hill and Milicic face off against Chauncey Billups, Hamilton, and Nazr Mohammed.

    They forgot to mention DHo!

    BBJ be prepared to catch hell in chat. Remember where your loyalty lives.
    Don't let MMFD expose you.
    Same for the rest of you Darkoites. And TDribites

    Too bad about Billups. This is am important game.

    I felt the loss last year to them helped give them the confidence to go on that win streak. A strategic beat down tonight could take some of that away and even improve our pick situation.

    If I had a choice between the Dallas game or this one I would pick this one. Time to get them both.

    Someone else is going to have to step up. Can still win this if Prince, Rip and Sheed play well and we get something from the bench. Also try and minimize Mohameds time and maximize Davis's for this one.

    From what I have seen so far this year with Milicic, the best strategy will be to try to get him in quick foul trouble. Since our bigs don't want to do it, then you need to send some guards his way.

    i've just got an ugly feeling that the magic win this one. just to spite all us loyalists and keep the drip feed going for the darko mili-freaks.

    an orlando win, no matter what kind of contribution from d-mi will give them enough ammunition to hang on in arguments until the next rematch.

    mili-freaks: we won cos we have darko. i mean, they won
    motown: he only scored 5 points and 3 rebs
    mili-freaks: but his presence propelled them to victory and scared sheed into shooting 3's all night
    roscoe: sheed does that every game anyway
    mili-freaks: he also had 47 shot alterations. i counted them all, even the one where darko simply raised his eyebrows at nazr which caused him to shoot a rainbow miss
    slippy: now THAT's fantasy basketball
    mili-freaks: but d-ho was extra motivated to grab 22 rebounds cos he knows if he doesn't go strong darko will get them all and his stats will look rubbish
    motown: just when i thought i could resist another baiting...
    mili-freaks: will blalock didn't play very well because ben's cancerous attitude last year made him go out and smoke dope and not work on his jump shot
    low: freaks...
