    Tay probably plugs himself quietly at the pistons starting five and with "sixth man" on the floor....nobody notices the difference. He's been "piston" for so long...everybody is used with that

    Hopefully Tay will instinctively pass it to our players.

    On the other hand everytime Prince gets the ball the Pistons on the floor will relax thinking they have time to go grab a hotdog and adult beverage before he makes his move. :P

    I'm sure he'll be throwing perfect chest passes to Stuckey and Knight as the Memphis shot clock buzzer sounds.
    If I was Knight, I'd just run to the half-court line whenever Tay gets the ball and just hold my hand up.

    I hope all Tay's luggage made it through Detroit Metro okay.

    I think that Bosh got off really lightly with his girly luggage, bottle of alcohol, and his sailor hat. He's lucky Tay was in the frame.

    I thought a Tayoslation was anytime he palmed the ball for 24 sec.

    Tay's nickname should be The Backseat Driver. He looks like he is already a huge pain in Lionel Hollins ass.

    I only watched on and off in the 1st half, but it seemed like Memphis made it a point to go at Calderon on D.

    I enjoy watching Krakovitz, English, Middleton et al play.

    Not much to write up. Our first unit looked respectable enough. Got an 11 point lead. Unfortunately, Bynum came in, and all the lead disappeared. Like so often, we never got it back even after Bynum left the game.

    Coach as usual made no effort to win the game. He started using some halfway ok rotations late in the 3rd after the game was pretty much decided. He did at least let Middleton and English play, who both looked good, but you really got to let both play a lot, let the rust go off, to really see what they can do. For sure, they are two of our best defenders regardless of what else they can contribute.

    Nice to see JJ make all those shots. Too bad it was all meaningless in a losing cause.

    I can't believe, that even with the game far decided, as he left Calderon in to apparently try something different, that something different included letting Stuckey pretend to be a shooting guard. Despite the differences, too much same old same old. Will coach ever quit trying to make Stuckey out as a shooting guard? Probably not I guess, but hey, with Dumars running things, losing apparently is what is accepted these days in Pistons land.

    Ok, a rotation for next game.

    Calderon, English, Middleton, Kravtsov, Monroe. Knight comes in early to spell Calderon so that Calderon can play extensively with the 2nd unit.

    2nd unit: Stuckey, Calderon, Singler, JJ, CV. Stuckey runs the point, crashes inside as much as possible - but has four shooters to kick out to if its too thick inside to navigate. Defensively, sure its a problem - but its the 2nd unit so maybe they can play long enough at least to give the starters a bit of rest.

    That was a mess. Nobody could hang on to the ball.

    Bynum is my favorite Piston right now.

    The garbage time team of Jerebko, Bynum, TRG, and English was fun to watch. Of course, I understand that they were playing in garbage time, in a blowout, against the Memphis bench. Still, that was like watching a very small market version of the Clippers.

    Again a loss after a 10-point lead !
    We got to give credit to that Grizz defense. They were everywhere in the 2nd and the 3rd. It seems like we couldn't take a shot. This is one of the best defense I have seen this year against the Pistons. They have the style of playing to go far in the playoff.

    On the Pistons side, seems like Jose show his limitation yesterday. When he do not have breathing room agaist a glue-defender like Conley or Allen, he is not the kind of player to beat his guy of a first step. He was unable to run this offense yesterday.

    Tay was +6 with his group, Z-Bo was bouncing guys off him thru the lane +25
    Daye -11 and only 6 pt as Grizz used him perfectly for 14 min. 3-5 shooting.
    Grizz bench stroked it like they were at home.
    If Frank wants to improve our paint Dee, [28th] you gotta make them pass out, but that wouldn't help tonite as Grizz stroked it too nice.

    Most dramatic moment of the game...Grizzlies up by 30, Austin Daye gets the ball in front of the Pistons bench and drains a three. He turns around and yells something at the Pistons bench before heading back down the floor.

    JJ was on fire, Middleton and English looked good.

    English looked like a cone in a drill the way Bayless was blowing by him. Perhaps he was defending out of position?

    That certainly went bad fast. Pistons were up 7 and I couldn't get the remote to stop fast forwarding after some commercials and then they were down by 20. If this team is going to continue to play like this I'm going to have to get some new batteries.
