The Pistons know the excuse meter is warn out... but I'll agree with Max that there is a lotta ball to be played before we can truly say we know what we've got here... but they are getting beat to the spots on a regular basis... I'm not sure the same plodding starters should all be in there at the same time... we need an energy guy mixed in with this group... I still like the idea of Tay being the main scoring threat off the bench playing 30+ minutes as the backup SG/SF.... someone like a healthy JRich would really energize the main lineup. This lazy chucking 3's has to stop... some might say you have to take what the offense gives you if they pack the paint... but you can take matters into your own hands by causing T.O.'s and converting in transition... last night when we got steals... it was just a slow stroll down to go into a half court set.... if Chauncey doesn't attempt to go inside we may not get to the playoffs. Now they'll prolly go out and have a gr8 game next time... it'd be nice to see some consistent hunger.
