    Pistons Game 14 of the 2005/6 NBA Regular Season
    Fri. Dec 2nd 2005, 8:00 PM Eastern
    Palace of Auburn Hills, built 1998, league leading capacity 22,076
    TV: WDIV, ESPN
    Radio: WDFN 1130AM


    Pre game Reading

    Brown returns to where he once coached

    How will Detroit react when Brown makes his return?

    Micro's Rookie to watch for
    Everyone is amazed and intrigued by Nate Robinson, the diminutive PG with sick hops. Well, the Knicks had a great draft and my man to watch is Channing Frye. He's scored 19 or more in 6 of his last 9 outings. He was co-Rookie of the Month with Chris Paul for November. The 22 year old former Arizona Wildcat and 8th overall pick in the draft is averaging a solid 14 and 6 while shooting over 50%.

    College Scouting Report - Thinly-built big man with a smooth back to the basket repertoire ... Makes use of the ball fake in the post, he is very adept at getting his defender in the air ... Keeps the ball high and cuts to his position well ... Long arms allow him to do a lot of good as his reach allows him to come over the top of his opponent ... Loves the jump hook, and should be able to develop a game facing the basket ... Good shot-blocker, and runs the floor well ... Great recovery quickness, he's able to get up and down for a second and third jump very quickly ... Possesses a nice set of hands to pull in caroms and feeds ... Has improved his decision making on the floor, with regard to not only shot selection, but in terms of avoiding foul trouble and finding his teammates on offense.

    Frye reminds me of a modern day version of Larry Brown's previous ROY protege, Buck Williams. If Chris Paul hits the wall or gets injured, Frye looks like a serious ROY contender. He will likely be starting at the 5 in the Rookie All-Star game. Ben should have his hands full.

    Back again just for a moment

    I am in a public library in Ohio and was just checking the forum. I was thinking that it would be neat for Flip to call Darko's number a few times in this game just to see how he would react against "little ykw's" team.

    It could be the little thing that would make for a break-out game :thumb: :eyebrows: :bounce: :rapture:

    If Darko don't get motivated for the Knicks... then it's hopeless.

    If people from Ohio don't need libraries, I don't know who does :confused: .

    We are on our way down to FL for the winter. Now, I am in a library in Landrum SC.

    I agree, if DMC cannot get motiviated for tonight's game, I guess we should let him out to pasture, but he does need to play to show if he does or does not have the motivation for tonight. Might be a good chance to rest Ben and let DMC start and Dyce be the first big off the bench :deadhorse . Just for tonight. Would you say that the Knicks are as good as Atlanta was last year? :eyebrows: :nod: .

    Again, getting 12-15 minutes EVERY game would motivate DMC more than any other thing in this world, even if 3 or 4 of it was in garbage time.

    Oh well, I guess we will see what happens.

    We need to get this one, for sure.

    Dont let this be Pacers all over again..

    As a 40 year fan of Detroit sports, let me say that I have grown tired of the bad images that surround this city, county and state. Some moments I shame on:
    1. The brawl last year vs Pacers
    2. The aftermath of winning 84 world series
    3. The reputation of The Big house being the Quiet house
    among others...but to show our rear ends tonight for the head coach of our third world championship on national Tv would break my heart. This is the same man who took a extra timeout to celebrate the career of Reggie Miller in the midst of our victory. I love his wearing of local teams jerseys at press conferrences and his deferrence to his players for accolades. His daily influences in the locker room are what helped revitalize and professionalize Sheed's career. ....
    in conclusion, if those 22,000 representatives of Pistonnation embarrass us all tonight, i will be very disappointed...
    cheer him tonight-then let him go.....my bruddahs!

    Something to watch for this game is the new lineup LB is trying... with Nate Robinson at PG and Starbury at SG... this was very effective vs the Bulls... Crawford came off the bench and put up 28 points.
    They will be looking to penetrate often.
    We need to make them pay by posting up the little guys.

    My outlandish prediction(s)

    I anticipate the Pistons coming out fully charged. It seems like whenever they do that they win without difficulty. The Knick will play tough for a short period, but they can't hang with Detroit's talent or drive. They will fade by the end of the first quarter.

    Blowout. Pistons by 29. At any rate, no way Detroit loses this one.

    Detroit 112
    Knicks 83


    Yep. I really do think that's gonna happen. :nod:

    I also think there will be a smattering of Boos for Larry but the cheers will drown them out. (I think that's a good thing).

    Additionally, the starters are going to build that big league so the bench has a chance to show Larry what they can do. (What they CAN do remains to be seen, however).

    I'm really looking forward to this one.

    Robinson worries me. Who will keep up with him? Gotta be Rip.

    Two Marquee Games in One Night

    Sure, a lot of attention will be at the Palace tonight, but I would bet most NBA fans will be glued to the game featuring Toronto at Atlanta.

    The Hawks are 2-12. The Raptors are 1-15. The combined 3-27 winning percentage is .100 and that is the lowest in league history (based on a minimum of 30 games played).


    The Hawks try to snap a three-game losing streak. The Raptors are looking to snap a six-game skid and still are searching for their first road victory.

    Man, I wish I had NBA TV. Could someone Tivo this one for me?

    sure, but I think I've seen this episode before.

    After both teams figure out a way to lose, Donald Trump comes out, grabs a microphone and proclaims to both teams, "You're FIRED!"

    A blow out in the making!

    Sure, I'll go for that...but I think it will be a little closer than you might think.

    Pistons 110
    Knicks 95

    The game will unexplicably close until the 4th quarter.

    I hope LB doesn't go up into the stands when someone throws a diaper at him.

    how many games have you been to at the palace? i've been to quite a few and the fans like to boo. you know how much chris webber got booed when we played the 76ers opening night? quite a bit.

    the place will probably be too loud for you to hear cheers OR boos on TV, so the announcers will probably tell you. but i guarantee a LOT of people will be booing and you'll be able to hear it if you're in the palace.
