    The last time I saw the Pistons at Oracle....11/13/2008......
    we won with balanced scoring from Iverson, Afllollo, Sheed and Rip....the final score was actually 107-102.
    The Pistons won 7 of their first 10 games with table cloth coaching, but were swept in the playoffs ...the last time made it..

    One thing I forgot to add....I met Mikhail at that game. He and I provided the spark off the bench.

    Pistons started out down 10. Bynum came in and now it's all tied up.

    Brian Hill only using 8 guys tonight. No CV, no English, No Slava. Of course, BK7 and Dre are hurt.

    The bench is all + so far. Moose is just getting out worked by Bogut and David Lee.....maybe Hill should have tried Slava.....but he maybe under secret directive to tank......

    One thing for certain, Kim English is never going to improve his game sitting on the bench the whole game watching Stuckey and Bynum.

    Bogut looked terrible at first glance, like he weighed 300 lbs but he was still better than any Pistons big.

    I think Curry could have gone for a 100 if they gave him the ball enough.

    That was a spirited effort, but the Pistons defense is awful. They gave up 2 offensive boards one play before Curry picked the ball up out past the 3 pt line and dribbled straight down the lane for a layup.

    The Warriors might have the best TV broadcast in the league. They're every bit the equal of the NY teams.

    As bad as this team is I think the rumblings are there again for a CV/Daye 3pt style if you swap in Drummond for Monroe.

    Blocked shots: 0 for us, 9 for them. Tough to win like that.

    Curry is a pleasure to watch. What a confident looking player right now.

    The Warriors have been struggling lately. They needed a Piston team to beat up on and stay ahead of the Fakers....Nobody really wants to be in the 7th or 8th spot.

    Brian Hill maybe the reason coach Larry is struggling....in addition to the players on the roster.

    I find it hilarious that as soon as Stuckey starts, the bench goes back to being all in the + again.

    The warriors have a nice starting lineup. Loaded with curry, lee, and bogut. They were giving monroe lots of trouble and lee was doing the guarding for the most part.

    We needed knight on steph and drummond on rim.

    Pretty obvious tank job. Did not put Calderon back in for the end of the 4th. Did not play Middleton in crunch time either, as he was just being too darn effective on defense.

    Bynum again gave up a key basket in crunch time just for being too short. Planned. Tanking all the way.

    Monroe missed just about everything in the first half. No, they were not good shots. They were rushed.

    Bynum did well enough, as he ran with Calderon at shooting guard quite a bit, with Middleton as yet another shooter to spread the floor. Of course, we would have won with that theme, and as we are so obviously into losing every game possible right now, so we did not go back to that in the 2nd half.

    Stuckey scored a lot, but as a shooting guard to help spread the floor for Calderon he is as much of a joke as Knight. You can blame near all of Monroe's problems on Stuckey starting this one, as opposed to a guy like Middleton who the other team would have to focus on.

    Oh well, its the usual theme, the other team has a couple of legitimate bigs, so the game is practically hollering for us to use a guy like Kravtsov to counter. So he does not play. Nothing on Hill's mind but tanking the game. Do not believe for one moment Detroit does not have the talent to win games.

    Moose was awful this game. Bogut completely shut him down. He wasn't even trying. Even the announcers called him out on his lame attempts at setting screens.

    Warriors are not a good team. They have a great set of players, but they either don't work very well together or Mark Jackson is an idiot of a coach. This game should not even have been close. You put that kind of effort from the Pistons, with those lineups against any other team in this league and we'll be blown by 20+ points.

    BTW, I really watched Middleton closely this game and the guy's a player. He should be our backup SF and this whole 3PG BS has to stop. His teammates don't realize he's out there though. There were so many times when the kid moved without the ball to perfect spots to score and was wide open just to watch Stuckey, Bynum or Monroe force a wildly contested shot.

    I feel his pain. I feel like I've watched Stuckey force about 1,000,000 wildly contested shots.
