50% FT not good enough
The Bus Driver looked good.
Pistons bench outlasts Cavs backups in OT finale as prelude to playoff matchup
Man, they starting McRae, and we can't watch. McRae scored 61 in the D League this season, a record for that league.
Would have loved to watch Joel block 8, or Dinwiddie do his poor man's imitation of Jackson, continually driving and making his foul shots. Well, only half of them, I did say poor man's version. Still, great to know he competed, and managed to get his team a win.
Stanley Johnson showed us why he belongs on the bench in the playoffs. I have never been so infuriated with some of the things he does. Things he doesn't and refuses to change. He should sit back and do his homework and actively pay attention to what playoff basketball looks like. He will get plenty of chances to show his worth next year. We just can't use his bball IQ. SVG, despite all odds, will be coaching to win.
Whatcha ya mean no broadcast?.....I watched the Cavs feed on my TV and the Pistons feed on both my smartphone and laptop. Scrubs vs scrubs as SVG dipped between his b and c squads in attempt to see who'd be lucky enough to get some playoff exposure this weekend. Blake looked great, Bullock fine, Tolliver looked great..(in the first half) Joel Anthony looked spectacular with 8 blocks, Meeks looked spectacular with 4 threes. if not for the shooting of Stan Van Johnson, Hilliard and the Mayor we would have won this one by 10 in regulation. The Mayor was really disappointing down the stretch not only missing all types of jumpers, but missing key fritos in crunch time that allowed the game to dip into OT. A Meeks 3 pointer with just under 4 minutes left put the Pistons up 9, but a 13-4 run capped by a Jordan McRae 3 tied it with 14 seconds left. After the Pistons went up 3 in OT...and SJ missed a possible two possession FT, McRae was fouled by silly Stan with 2 seconds left with the Pistons up 3, but he missed his first two fritos and the Pistons won by 2. He scored 36 points and was probably too tired to hit the freebies after playing 47 minutes. If we have a playoff secret weapon in Meeks...they got one in McRae. You can tell by the reaction of Lebron and co that they wanted the win....especially when the Cavs were making their comeback. Glad we got it as this was a psychological win over the Cavs.....no need to go into playoffs with them thinking that even their scrubs could beat our scrubs. ..... Although we almost blew it relying on too many jumpers and three balls in crunch time. We were in the bonus the last five minutes of regulation and went to the line only 4 times....with Dimwidde hitting 2 of 4. See you in the playoffs!!!!
LOL. Spencer needs to go play in China for 20 or 30 years.
I've always thought Meeks looks like Kobe from a distance... Only shorter. Same posture or something that I can't place. Maybe it's leftover from seeing him in an LA uniform.
When Meeks played for the Lakers it was hard to tell the two a part as both were putting up volume shots and if the number was blurred you couldn't tell who made the bucket...
One way ticket right?
Jess He' the D League single game scoring record holder. 60+ points.
I think the most important question to be asked for those of us that couldn't see the game... how did Meeks look overall, and more importantly on the def end of the court?
I don't think either are secrets after that game. I doubt the Cavs put McRae into a game unless it's garbage time. They just signed him to a 10-day contract. The question for SVG right now: "Is Meeks better than SJ and Bullock?"
WTF is Gundy doing switching up the rotation rght before the playoffs?!?! I think that is a Y-U-G-E mistake. This is exactly what he did benching Skip To My Lou for Jameer Nelson right before the finals in 2009.
We'll honor him on national leisure suit day.
I didn't pay a ton of attention to him on defense, but his offense was excellent. He ran cuts hard, his shot was falling and he was making quick passes. The big difference between Meeks and Pope on offense is that Meeks is like Rip, always moving. Pope gets stuck without his dribble a lot. A bad habit that SJ and Hilliard also have. When Meeks is hitting his shots, he is a real alternative to Pope on offense. He is probably a disaster zone compared to Pope on defense though.
I'm in if Blake goes with him
