    A nice nationally televised matchup on Super Bowl Sunday afternoon. The Pistons will seek revenge from a 16 point loss in Dallas. Avery Johnson has tinkered with his starting lineup looking for a spark.

    It always pains me to watch Prince get overpowered by what should have been our 2nd first rounder in 2003.

    DET seems to be the only team that lets Nowitzki catch the ball on O. Herrrrrman had success because he bodied him prior to receiving the pass and took his legs away. If they go with Wallllllter, how will that impact the rest of the rotation?

    67 points for Dallas today on 30 percent shooting. Four blocked shots for Sheed.

    I only watched bits and pieces. Was the Pistons' D that good or did the Mavs just have an off shooting night?

    Great game! Vintage performance by the Pistons tonight.

    Sheed was fantastic. Tay owned. Was it me or was Jarvis suprisingly OK on defense? Only 2 blow by's

    Stuckey is starting to impress me, and i haven't been a big fan thus far.

    Only 1 criticisms
    No Amir in the 2nd half except GT

    So what if he had 3 fouls in the 1st half?

    Also wish we could find minutes for Hermann sometimes. Maybe when Hayes is off.

    Mostly good D IMO. They missed shots, but we did a good job of limiting their easy oppurtunities sans a stretch in the 2nd when we couldn't stop fouling.

    I LOVE Fabio's effort!

    The announcer said that he was playing like it was a tie game in OT during garbage time. Now THAT is Piston's DNA!

    I like that too. Apparently there are no cultural restrictions for playing hard at the end of games.

    I agree, I want more. I want to see 11-12 guys playing a night. You always here the aggressors get the whistles, but once again the only thing keeping it a game was DET being in the penalty.

    Good defensive effort today after getting embarrased by the Mavs three weeks ago and allowing the Lakers free will in the second half of Thursdays game.

    67 points for a team that averages 100...Dirk 3-18 :)

    Our allstar guards didn't have a good game shooting wise 8-25, but had key hoops in the second half to keep the lead in double digits. Sheed and Tay made up for the guard play and for the second straight game Sheed comes back in the second qtr to lead a spark after the offense had stalled and we allowed the Mavs to come within 1 pt at 29-28.

    Once again stellar play by the bench (32 pts) as Max also provided some spark in the first qtr as the first guy off the bench. Stuckey started inconsistent, but had a very good game and a career high 11 points. Right now he looks more comfortable playing the 2 than the point. Hayes also looked good today and Fabio proved that he still belongs on the team if for some reason hayes goes down.

    Flip jr was activated, but did not get in since Avery didn't throw up the white flag until the 3 minute mark and FlipSr wisely kept his youth in there to play together.

    Super win for this super Sunday. Superbowl party at Sheeds house, Mavs invited!!:burp::chef2:

    It really doesn't matter what you call him, just put him on the floor, and put the ball in his hands. He can defend the 1 and 2, and coming off bench, you don't really need a true pass-first PG anyways. A guy you can count on to come in and attack the paint effectively is more important. Flip's offense has always been based around a scoring PG rather than a pass-first guard anyways. Especially with the sets he runs while the bench is in the game (a lot of iso's for whichever starters are remaing in the game).
