    Nazmo and the Bobcats will try and and hand the Pistons their first lost in 8 games as they visit the Palace. J-Rich and Gerald Wallace combined for 46 points in the first meeting between these teams, a Piston 103-100 victory. Nazmo had 19 points and 13 boards.

    BTW, CB and Rip combined for 53 points and 15 asst in the win!

    I will be at the game. The last one I was at was the first game or so where Amir and Afflalo were in the rotation again. I am hoping this one goes like the Portland game. No, not the score, but the playing time for the subs. Its the idea of the Pistons winning it all that excites me, something that will happen if the starters stay rested and the bench plays a lot. Regular season wins and losses just are not that important. (Although, I of course would love to see a win and preparation for the playoffs. I do believe our bench is good enough such that playing them will only help.)

    I agree. It's how they win. Now is the time to see what happens if the play with 3 guards. Can they get more versatile and diverse? Let the big picture and not the score guide them. I don't think the fans are jaded from winning. It is seeing them make the same mistakes over and over that irks folks.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Nazmo goes for a double double. I expect Sheed to be easy on him as long as we are winning.

    No,No,No, we must subvert the mighty Nazzs before they get confidence and use it against us in the playoffs like the Giants did with the Pats. It can happen.

    The fact is that the Belacheats were not near the same team this year during the last month or so as they were in the beginning of the year. Once the competition got tough they continued to win but there were a lot more closely contested games then there were in the beginning of the year when they were playing against JV teams like Miami.

    When you consider that drop-off Budh, it's a wonder they could do 18-0.
    Belacheat wouldn't let them relax or get a big head. Awesome season.

    I agree. Two of those games, the Ravens and Giants were given to them by the officials. That is why it didn't surprise me that the Giants beat them.

    No contest...Tay scores 11 of the first 18 to get the Pistons going and the Pistons run off to 16 point first qtr lead and push it up as high as 27 with the Bob cats threatening only once early in the 4th, but then the pistons win going away winning by 26. 3 point barrage by Pistons including 5 by Tay put this one away early.

    The kids took over in the 4th ending the game with a series of punctuating dunks. In fact the bench put up 47 points.

    Thats 8 straight victories for the palace playas!!!

    Near perfectly executed game, except for Rip getting a little 3 happy but he made up for it with some nice cuts. Another great start by the starters really set the tone in the 1st quarter. Charlotte only had 7 points in the final 3 mins or so of the quarter. Tay hit 4 3's to start the game in the 1st quarter.

    This new bench of ours is no longer just about energy, they are starting to gell and execute their own plays. Stucky is getting so much better as a playmaker. More husle and diving for loss balls from Amir which will help him secure more PT. Afflalo was not even mentioned by Kelser in his bried summary but this guy is also getting a lot better.

    Amir diving for that loose ball in garbage time was a thing of beauty. Darko never woulda done that.

    Stuckey and Amir are locked in on the break, too.

    Gotta consider the competition, too. Charlotte stinks. Too many injuries.

    Stuckey has set or matched a career high in points in 4 of the last 5 games. (That Dunk! :eek:)

    He and AJ are going to be exciting to watch for MANY years to come.

    Good game. Tay was hot early, helping offset Billups' not-so-hot shooting. Rip missed a bunch of treys, but he really helped stabilize the bench unit in the fourth quarter, and got in some timely cuts and passes. Good flurry to end the game too. The bench is really starting to play well together. I believe this was the highest scoring game for them at 47 pts as well.

    Stuckey and Amir are developing good chemistry on the break, and sometimes in the halfcourt sets as well. Afflalo didn't stand out, really, but I thought he played well enough. Maxiell played well enough, and Stuckey's imprving very rapidly. If he continues to do so, the Pistons should have a very good second option at point in the playoffs to help CB out.
