Our Pistons went toe-to-toe with (IMO) the best team in the NBA. ...some observations: I've said this before, there are only two NBA players that I wouldn't trade for Paul George. Josh Smith is a helluva defender but Paul George is a horrible matchup for him. I thought Singler actually did a better job on him than J-Smoove. On the current roster, KCP might be the only guy we have that can slow George down. Joe might want to put "athletic wing defender" on his shopping list. Paul George just signed a new deal with 'Nap Town and he's a young Central division opponent that were gonna have to deal with for quite a few years. I was VERY impressed with Andre Drummond. The box score doesn't show the defense that he played on Hibbert and the fact that he didn't back down one bit to one of the best bigs in the league. Every time Hibbert pushed him - Dre pushed back. I saw some "fight" in Dre last night that I haven't really seen yet from him. Greg Monroe played well. He needs to shut his mouth and understand that bad calls are part of the game. Maybe just pick his spots a little more regarding when to whine to the officials. The face-up J that Moose hit in the 1st Q actually got me up off of my couch! What's up with the freaking guard "Motations" that Mo is running out there? Going into last nights game, the Pistons were LEADING THE LEAGUE in point in the paint. We have a three-headed monster that dominates under the hoop. All we need our guards to do is: 1. spread the floor. 2. make good entry passes 3. run some pick & roll 4. make themselves available for kick-outs & knock down jumpers. -BJ7 does all of these things. -Bup Bup does all of these things. -Teen Wolf does 3 out of 4 of these things. -Stuckey does NONE of these things. If Mo only wants to play Chauncey 25 minutes a night, 5 of those minutes should be the last five minutes. I thought Bynum played solid the whole game but I thought he hit the panic button down the stretch on a few plays. I just feel like Chauncey handles bidness better than any other guard on the team right now. (...This goes for the Memphis game too). Here's an over-simplification but to an extent, I think it's true: Stuckey was the only minus player off the bench with -9. ...We lost by 8. Pizza Guy was gripping hard on his shot but overall, he played well. He played some solid D and got his hands on quite a few loose balls. He looks pretty quick. His shot will start going in. He looks quicker than Walt Herrrrrmannnnn. The Palace was too empty. Fans need to get on board!
