LETS GO PISTONS!
Chat is open!!! http://www.pistonsforum.com/misc.php?do=flashchat But I'm in a baseball draft so gimme a little bit to show up!
But Billups...asirball airball t.o. and no defence? Webber ??? Bench on ...incredible Rip Tay...COME ON COME ON now 57 51 no 20 down
Rip has the yips at the free-throw line. Sad to see this. It's like having Ben up there late in a game.
Ball don't lie.
dang---what a great game---wish Rip would have hit those shots.
Crazy finish...Spurs practically tried to give it away, Manu with one of the worst passes of all time, Flip with a ridiculous flop that the ref called after waiting about 10 seconds...but then he CHOKES at the line...terrible. Webber had an awful game, and CB did nothing until the last couple of minutes. CB and Rip are both clearly off their game now. Gotta get them healthy and back on track.
It's hindsight but if not for the Pistons getting 2 techs and Rip missing 2 free throws the boys could have stolen this game. The Pistons didn't deserve to win this game, especially with that horrible 1st quarter. Webber has had 2 bad games in a row so hopefully that's just a blip. Chauncey is still not hitting his stride and his 3s were going up like bricks so that didn't help the cause. The best unit we had out there in terms of putting the Pistons ahead for their only lead was Delfino, Murray, Prince, Wallace and Dice. I think the Spurs/Pistons would be a really great match-up but Flip Saunders is just not up to the chess game moves that Popovich employs.
Yea Rip looks awful. Besides choking, he's forcing EVERYTHING. Give him a week off to get right again. Chauncey looks great in spurts, but can't sustain a 48 min effort. He needs to rest as well. Sheed is suspended for MIL. Luckily Bogut is out as well.
Agreed. That was our best line-up. Also i have sinking feeling that this is what Webber is going to look like in the playoffs against elite teams like this (defensive).
Well the week that was started off with a 20 point blowout of the Suns that had the Pistons beating their chests. Then the 4th qtr FT meltdown to the Mavericks, a nice scheduled win over the Sixers, then two games in Texas that were lost due to strugging offenses in the first qtr and using to much effort to catch up. Falling behind early is a killer!! It only proves that if we were in the west, the Pistons would still be the fifth or sixth best team. Sweeps by the jazz, warriors and now the probable west champions Spurs. Yeah we can hang with them, based on the close LOSSES, but no moral victories here. When the Pistons come out flat, then that means not PT for Max and we never find out what he can bring to the table in these situations. Isn't time to bring back AJ to see if he can contribute down the stretch? Wassup with Rip(choker) and the Ft line?? Goes 2-7 vs the mavs, does not get to the line vs the Rockets and 0-2 vs the Spurs??? Are the Texas teams Rip achilles heel?? Pistons could not break 90 points vs those texas teams this week. 93 points by the Pistons in each of those games would have been 3 winners. Webber struggled in both of these Texas games too. SHeed may be out Sunday due to another tech...hopefully its reviewable and overturned.
Not much left to say except... the better Dice plays in a marquee matchup, the lower our chances of winning becomes... You can't get too much done with 3 starters playing so poorly. CB needs to sit down as soon as LH is back. His game and instincts are retarded right now.
Also, why is Webber's game in the tank as soon as his shooting coach from Philly shows up? We don't need that filthy, pathetic Sixers taint anywhere near our team!
I only caught some of the last part of the 4th...my main focus is the bench. Dice was on both ends of the floor getting an awesome 'why did he even try that shot?' block. He got a nice dish out from a driving Jr for a rattler 15 footer. Dice has been playing great...he WANTS it. Jr seems determined to prove us all wrong about what we've said about him all season. Delfino battled hard for a good O rebound and got the put back down with a foul...but the refs called it a non-shooter...the most questionable call I saw.........UNTIL Rip got barely bumped by Bowen near mid-court and coughed up the ball while falling to the floor like he'd been kneed in the crotch...the whistle came when Bowen approached the foul stripe on his way to a dunk. As always...the officiating is suspect in it's subjectiveness and tendency to weird make up calls. Rip's many missed FTs over the last few games are way outta character for him...but his flop tonight was borderline ridiculous. Rip's got some head games goin on...I hope he finds a way to clear it up before the playoffs.
i disagree. you can win games if 3 starters aren't playing well. flip saunders is just unwilling to sit them when they aren't playing well. flip murray, fino, dale davis should have got wayyyy more minutes.
fell asleep, woke up 4th quarter, fun to watch, we lost, blah, good thing we're in the east, can the playoffs get here already, etc.
Flip? You mean Rip, rite? You are as tired and worn out like both CB and Rip, my bro Take good care
Jmax should have played too esp when Timmy was out towards the end of the 1st quarter, Let him play for 5 minutes, no harm since we are already down that much. The spurs have already start makin changes at the 5 minute mark of the 1st. But Flip sub pattern is so predictable every game. Only Dice comes in the 1st. Why, Flip? WHY?
Whoops...I must have pulled a groin in chat or something.
