    Detroit At Dallas - 8:30PM

    TV: WDIV
    Radio: WDFN

    The 6-2 Maves are on a routine and very comfortable home stand. Their last 2 games have been wins against Denver and Atlanta on the 15th and 17th. Mavs offense was down in those 2 scoring only 83 and 87 points respectivly.


    Injuries:
    Mavs: Jerry Stack House - Right Knee. Has not played yet this year.
    Doug Christie - Sore Left Ankle
    VanHorn - Sprained Middle Finger.

    Pistons - None

    Notes: Pistons will have to get out of the mini rebounding funk ( out rebounded by more than 10 in 2 of the last 3 games ) to pull this one out tonight. Dampier, Diop, Josh Howard and VanHorn ( if he plays ) will try to get the Mavs as many 2nd chance opportunities as possible. Besides that try and limit Terry and keep Dirk on the outside and I think we got this one. They will miss VanHorn if he does not play as he has been off to a great start this season with 14.1 PPG and 6.4 RPG.

    Sure its a back-back and a very likely ending to the winning streak but don't count out the fact that the team must be aware of Cleveland breathing down their knecks in the standings and if you look at it as just another winning streak the team record still stands at 13.

    Dallas Scouting Report of this game



    Some extra motivation: In the last pre-season game the Mavs pretty much used their standard rotation against Flips 13-guy pre-season choice for a cheap pre-season victory against the Pistons 103-97.

    I know the players can't afford to get ahead of themselves, but I feel it's fine for us fans to: IF they win tonight, I can see the Pistons going 11-0 for sure - with wins over Denver and the Wizards. Anybody want to comment on that?

    This will be the best litmus test so far of how good the Pistons really are. Beating Dallas on the road would be huge.

    I'll comment. Mark it down as a loss. (But I missed both of my college football predictions today so hopefully I'm off here too)!

    It's a back to back road game against a good team who has had a full days rest. The Pistons have a bullseye on their back. The Pistons like to mess around for 3 quarters before getting serious.

    Blowout for Dallas.

    Dallas 106 Detroit 92

    Thanks for the 8 game streak guys!

    Dallas/Detroit...

    This should be a great test for the Pistons. I think it will be a high scoring affair... Who will win? Stay tuned. :laugh:

    Looks like the Pistons forgot how to defend. This is ugly early 13-3 Dallas.

    Tayshaun is playing like CRAP!

    Tough hole to dig out of

    Obviously the fast pace and the road have caught up with the starters. Dice, Evans and Arroyo have to deliver or it is a long trip back to Motown:doh:

    When the wheels come off, they come the F*** off don't they?

    I guess you'd really have no use for LB's defensive scheme in a game like this eh? Pass the cornbread.

    Pistons playing lousy. Can't buy a bucket, lousy defense.

    I'm very disappointed in all of the starters.

    We're behind by 20+ points and all you can come up with is "Tayshaun's been invisible?" :)

    Maybe we need this. I think our starters have been logging too many minutes and I wonder if that's part of the reason for this very embarrassing performance.

    At any rate, they should get plenty of rest tonite.

    Too bad Chauncey wasn't invisible, I'm going to have nightmares of his first Q jumpers. Oh, and Darko missed a 3, and Arroyo just airballed (but Tay got the rebound).

    Hey look, K-Pax is on!

    We'll be fine as long as Arroyo continues to dribble out the calendar year.

    We're getting killed, and Dirk hasn't done anything yet.

    This is about how we played in the first half of the last two games, but the other team wasn't shooting lights out... on top of all the easy baskets.

    Well, I'm not surprised that Darko has not done much. This game has been garbage time since the 7 minute mark and we all know how he doesn't give a solid effort in garbage time...
