    Headline from Atlanta: It was a like ascene from the Walking Dead.

    Apparently they haven't followed the Pistons 3rd quarter performance or they would know that its not something to write home about.

    Even though there is no game, I still expect a couple of recaps.......Pistons by 0.5......

    The Pistons uncharacteristically changed things up by running the offense through Greg Monroe with KCP curling around numerous screens to pour in 18 pts. Drummond had 12 pts and 15 rebounds and Josh Smith added 21 pts and 11 rebounds and 4 assists and Piston ball movement opened holes for both bigs to score off put backs and lobs. Singler put in 9 pts and 4 reb. Stuckey added 16 pts and 4 assists. Gigi got off the bench and added 8 points on efficient shooting. Mo Cheeks will return to the sidelines after missing this game and MAz Trkh haad all his lineups texted to him by an unknown source.

    With the game being cancelled, gives me more time to do the writeup.

    Our starters held their own, getting a 3 point lead after one. To start the 2nd quarter, Stuckey, Mitchell and Jorts came in for Jennings, Smith and Drummond. This gave us a unit out there of Stuckey, Pope, Mitchell, Monroe, and Jorts.

    Stuckey was brilliant on a series of drives in, resulting in five made pullups, a pair of conventional 3 point plays, three assists inside to Monroe, Jorts, then Mitchell, and two assists for Pope threes.

    Four minutes into the 2nd quarter with us up by 25, Jennings,Smith and Drummond came back in for Pope, Monroe, and Jorts. Now we had a unit of Stuckey, Jennings acting as the shooting guard on offense, Mitchell, Smith, and Drummond. This unit held its own, with Stuckey continuing to drive in for the most part (numbers above for Stuckey include this stretch too), but maybe a few too many outside shots by Smith and Jennings - both of whom did go inside once each though during this stretch for scores. We did stretch the lead out just a bit, to 29. And twice, Drummond cleaned up the offensive glass for Stuckey here.

    Then our starters were all back in for the last four minutes, added a few points to the lead to make it a laugher.

    So what was the final score? I mean if we were up by 29, why didn't the coach bring in Singler, Bynum, BoT, Pizza guy and JJ for garbage time?

    Actually, they were all let go. A group of guys on 10 days looked pretty good though playing most of the 2nd half after our starters pushed the lead to 40 five minutes into the half.

    Seems to me that cancelling games because of a bunch of flakes should happen more often.

    Definitely pick up ground in the east by not playing. We'd be in the playoffs if all our games were cancelled.

    This is the Make-up game from the 2 inch ice storm that shut down Atlanta on 1/29.

    Josh Smith out of tonight's lineup with tendinitus. Time to play Mitchell

    Crazy Loyer decides to start Stuckey......are we trying to play spoiler??? Get the kids in there.

    Watching the game on NBALPBB. Funny, apparently neither the Pistons nor the Hawks are broadcasting this game. The video quality is atrocious compared to other games I've watched on NBALPBB. So far, we're killing them on the boards. Pistons up 14-8 right now.

    I have the game on my direct tv channel 751. You are correct...even in HD the video contrast is bad and it even sounds like the announcers are broadcasting outside the arena, as you can hear no sounds from the crowd.....in fact the announcer just said something about this being the radio network.
    So it looks like some amateur with a Sony Cam is broadcasting the video from his seat in the 20th row and bouncing it off his two buddies sitting behind the baskets.:smash:
