    Frank puts Vern in with Charlie.
    Vern looks terrible having to cover for Charlie's "defense".
    Vern gets sent back to the bench.
    Vern gets released in the offseason.
    Vern gets picked up by San Antonio next season where he averages 11pts, 8reb, 1.5blks in 17 minutes per game backing up Tim Duncan.

    Looks like it will be on League Pass according my Direct TV guide.....probably with Austin Carr and Fred McCleod giving their over the top analysis.

    It was Austin Carr who indirectly gave Charlie V the Charlie Garbage nickname when he referred to him as "a garbage time All Star" during a game.

    Tigers and Red Wings are on the FSD channels. My computer says the Pistons are winning 89-49. Is that correct? :cheerleader:

    Cavs must be in full tank mode. I hate Gilbert.

    Tanking is trying hard with your scrubs and losing by 10. When you lose by 50 to the Pistons, you really, really, really, really suck.

    You showed off your excellent prediction skills again tonight, Nemo. The Cavs only lost by 50. I hope you aren't a gambler.

    Tank Squad couldn't seal the deal. That was the only time the Cavs outscored us in a quarter too. :crossed:

    Brandon had a hell of a game, finishing with a new career high 28 points on 11 of 12 shooting and 7 assists in just under 30 minutes of playing time. His only miss was a 3 that bounced out, and even with the miss he outscored the Cavs by himself in the third, 19-12. Even outside of the scoring, he did a good job running the offense and led the team to an 11 point lead after one, with 4 assists in that quarter alone. Brilliant.

    Greg had a solid game as well, able to get whatever he wanted against the Cavs' interior guys, and would probably have scored a bunch more points if some of his shots hadn't rimmed out. As it is, he was an efficient 4 of 7 from the field for 12 points, 13 boards, 3 assists and 4 steals in 27 minutes. That was also Greg's 29th double double of the season.

    Rodney was the only Piston starter who didn't shoot at least 50% from the floor, 3 of 8, due in large part to his slow start offensively, initially going 1 for 5 in the first two quarters. He did have a better 3rd quarter though, hitting 2 of 3 shots. He also had 6 assists.

    Tayshaun played pretty well, on both ends. He was second leading scorer with 15 points on 6 of 8 from the field, and didn't force the issue when the shot wasn't there, and that's reflected by his and the team's FG% and assist numbers.

    CV - much as I rag on him, he actually played pretty well today. Sure, his defense still isn't where it needs to be, and he shoots too much, but he rebounded well (had 8 in 22 minutes, behind only Greg) and played with some energy. I still think he's paid too much for what he brings to the table and so I'm hoping this good play nets us a good trade opportunity in the offseason.

    BG was ok, didn't play a lot, only 16 minutes, and a handful of that was in garbage time.

    Big Ben played pretty well. Old man can still get up there; he was able to block 3 shots and changed a lot more in less than 15 minutes.

    JJ also played well, initially coming in for Tayshaun at SF but got moved to PF with both Max and CV in foul trouble and Big Ben already on the floor. Like most of his teammates, he shot a ridiculous percentage and finished with 14 points and 4 boards in just over 21 minutes.

    Bynum was ok.

    Wilkins - see Bynum.

    Walker got in the game in uber garbage time, but managed to net 2 assists and 2 points.

    Daye - he's well ensconced in Frank's doghouse again, and went in at the same time as Walker. He had 2 points and 3 fouls in under 7 minutes. Had 2 steals though.

    Brilliant game. The Pistons made the Cavs look like a worse version of the Bobcats - their largest lead against the woeful Cats was 36 - they led Cleveland by 50 and held them to 50 total points after 3 quarters, hitting the century mark at the same juncture. Crazy. Granted, it was against the tanking Cavs without their best player, but the effort was there from tip off, on both ends of the floor. Frank's experimentation with CV in the second unit looks to be paying off a bit as well, providing some much-needed scoring punch for that front line. Always a double edged sword, of course, given his and BG's deficiencies on defense which will be exposed by a better team, but it helps balance things out. They're guaranteed to not do a repeat of their earlier distinction of 0-3 on back to back to backs now too.
