    Hard to figure this game. We beat them with Sheed off but they didn't have Nocioni. They played us pretty well. But you never know what level we are playing at in terms of effort. Good to see us grind them down in the last quarter or so.

    Maxiel is Piston DNA.

    I'm pretty sure I can remember a couple of Webber game-winners.

    A quick search on youtube confirms this.

    Looked like Tay had a good game and was there in the end with a hand in Gordon's face.

    But let's start Delfino. :stirthepot:

    After Tay missed the two (TWO!) freethrows, I was actually hoping the Bulls would send it into overtime. I could easily have watched that game for 5 more minutes .

    Blakely had a couple of interesting things on the game.



    - Webber almost did not play.



    - Oh and Sheed was upset that he had to sit out the 2nd half, thought he could have played through it. Not going to quote that.

    I didn't get to see the game cuz I wuz traveling, but it looked like a great one. Maxiell's +/- impact was huge. I'm looking forward to watching his performance on the DVR.

    Well, he DID leave the door open by missing 2 clutch free throws with 19 seconds left that would have made it a 2 possession game. :stirthepot:


    Other than that he played well. A couple nice blocks (seems like he should get more half-court set blocks than he does ala AK47). The hook shot toward the end was timely.

    This was a good article about the game and Bens return from Chic. Professionally written without anything immature like you sometimes see from some clubs - "Bulls have to make them pay" nothing like that.

    With Sheed out Tay worked the paint much more. At first he wasn't that effective but soon the ball started coming to he and Webb and JMax. He was not standing in the corner this game.
    The effort was there but a good offensive team would have scored 100 on us. With all the misses early we could have got blown out.
    Didn't we beat these guys by 5 to 10 last year? With a lot a Bulls drama after it was all done.
    When BBeen was a Piston I would see him shoved with and without the ball and not get the call. Same thing last night. If he saw the guy he could hold his position, but guys would shove him from behind and sometimes get the board.

    Not sure if you travel a lot, but Sirius carries all games. Only thing is they carry the visiting broadcasters.

    Yep, Forced Turnovers and offensive rebounds gave the Pistons 15 more shot attempts. Good teams will find ways to win.

    Make no mistake about it fellas, Chicago is the real deal. The action in the paint was the best I have seen recently. Da Bulls are a load. We better be ready for those cats.

    I half-way liked (for once) the way that game was officiated, except for the quick whistles to halt the fast break.

    Skiles knows they have at least one big problem though. J-Max.

    That C-Webb / J Max combo worked em!

    One thing that was interesting. Ben is doing his thing just like here. But he is also doing what was the liability here-----all defense and no shots even when he's open. Only tip-ins and close 6 footers in attempts. And no foul shots of course.

    He's BEN WALLACE, not Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. What do you people want?

    His specialty is DEFENSE and REBOUNDING. I fail to understand why so many people can complain about a guy who does what he's good at. He can give you 8-10 pts, but is a monster on the boards and defending the hoop. Why insist on being mad at a guy for not being someone else? He's not a 20 pt scorer. Use him to his strengths and get over it.

    Bulls have too many problems winning on the road to contend for a title this year. They should have traded for Gasol. Even if it meant both Deng and Gordan. Can you imagine a Gasol/Wallace frontcourt? Add in Heinrich plus that other young guard that they never seem to find time for.

    I disagree.

    They need Deng and or Gordon. That`s about 39 points per. They can`t afford to give away any points.

    They don't have to contend they just have to bug us. Which they're getting good at...at our house. If They could knock the Pistons off, all of Chi would go tiptoeing through the tulips.:yellowprison:
