    Here's a team on a roll.......winning 4 in a row. Their last lost was to Oklahoma City in a close game.
    I look at this lineup and get envious........4 years ago......that wouldn't have happened.

    Grizzlies by 12..........

    There are so many teams that we can say that about.
    When you factor in contracts, talent and "upside" into the whole equation, there aren't many rosters in the NBA that I would't trade for ours.

    ...I feel like I've just been such a doom & gloomer on this board lately but I guess it goes with the territory when your team is at rock bottom. I really need something positive to happen to the Pistons to help snap me out of this funk.
    We can trade Stuckey and Tay some time in March right?
    ...and at least Charlie hasn't been playing.

    Memphis is a good team that has played a brutal schedule (their six losses are to San Antonio, OKC (twice), Chicago (who they later beat), Utah, and the Lakers). They shouldn't have any problem handling Detroit, even without Randolph. Memphis by 15.

    I kinda look at Rascoe to really know how the Pistons are doing. he always remains positive when things are crumbling around him with the Pistons...........

    This season............he's saying very, very, very little. There's a message there......for me, anyways.

    I hope that Walker D. Jr. chooses to wear #3 tonight.
    Me thinks he can manage to drop 11pts, snag 3 boards and dish out a couple of dimes (while shootin' 34%) to proove to Joe that ANYONE can do what "Rodney Contract" does for a fraction of the price!

    Joe's get extra butter for his popcorn so he can use it as an excuse for how he let Marreese Speights slip through his fingers. ...Yet another emerging young big who would instantly become our 2nd best frontline player and could have been had for a 2nd round pick. ...yes, I said 2nd round pick.

    Zeebo (injured) might just rack-up a double-double while watching from the sidelines tonight.

    We will witness firsthand what we missed today in Speights. Gasol is going to kill us for sure, but Speights will probably have a 20/10 game. Grizz by at least 15.

    I remember watching former Piston Walker D Russell Sr. when he was a star at WMU. It's kind of cool that his son will also spend some time with the Pistons.

    BBen starting at PF again. Good.

    Blaha just called Gordon "sweet shootin"?

    Interesting (and nice) story about Russell. Hope he does well. His dad's in the house to watch his son play.

    There seems to be about 800 people in the Palace.

    Mason went to introduce the pistons coach and said 'John...', then corrected himself and said Lawrence Frank. Nice

    Theres about 4,000 people here

    Horrible start. I wouldn't be surprised if we get spanked by 40 points. I don't even know why I watch these games any more.

    ^If only his team could help him win instead of propelling them to another loss.
