    Curry needs to be fired immediately if they blow this game.

    It's like a bad dream over and over. Tay at point forward. Dice/Sheed in the 4th quarter. The game slows down to a snail's pass, we can't score, and on the other end our defense goes to hell.

    Max, Amir, hell Sharpe, put anyone else in.

    Can someone tell me how the hell Beasley has gotten behind our entire defense twice (or was it 3 times?) for breakaway layups?

    Hopefully if the Pistons lose this game they won't lose it on phantom Wade fouls, like that last one on Rip.

    Looks like they are going to pull it out. Thank you Stuckey for finally saying screw everybody else and taking over at the end. The frustrating part of this game (and others) is that it gets t the point where it's a dogfight because of bad line-up/strategy and then when we face better teams we can't recover.

    Wow... could you imagine the backlash Sheed would've taken had he missed that 3 point heave? :eek: Wow.. it was wide open though but still.

    Happy for the win. Curry is a useless dolt.

    Go Pistons.

    What a nail biter.. Curry almost blew another end of the 3rd qtr lead by not bringing Amir back in and then waiting until crunch time to bring in Alf...who got the save with his 2 FT's

    Rip gets back into the game in the last 18 seconds to miss 2 critical FT's after Tay bricked a tech FT. They basically set up wade up for a game tying three ball but thank goodness he went back to his first half brickness on his last two shots.

    The irony is I turned to the Rockets-Grizzly game after wards and they showed an NBA commercial with Rip on the FT line showing how cool he was in making free throws.....:sssh:

    In rebuilding season I'll take any win regardless how ugly they are.

    Stop pretending like this team has answer to every game situation.

    This is not Flip's and Billup's team but still I see forumites complain "oh why we do not have floor general there? Where are foolproof plays? where are clutch free throws?"

    Get over.

    Trying to lose every game one second half rotation at a time. That could be Curry's slogan.

    Alot of stupid moments in the clutch. AI having ADD. And Rip picking up the FT disease that has spread throughout the team.

    We did outrebound them!

    edited to add;

    Our spacing is still really bad. Teams are just sitting in the paint in the half-court set.

    How could Tay not grab D-Wade at halfcourt?? I mean the guy is quick like a flash but come on, he could've bumped him pretty good there. I'm glad he missed that 3 point attempt.

    I think Tay may have fouled Wade after he crossed the half court before he took the shot..at least he thought he did and that is why he was asking the ref at the end of the game why he didn't call it.. he would have really been the refs ear if Wade had made the shot.

    Nobody should be scared of us at all. Nobody ever improves. None of the mistakes are ever corrected, individually and as a unit.

    Even our wins suck. I know I'm being a malcontent, but there is absolutely nothing to be excited about now. Our offense is basically just one on one crap.

    Yea that about sums it up. Can never seem to build up a lead without letting them back in. I can think of only a couple of games where it wasn't a struggle at the end. Then to miss 3 free-throws - we were lucky to win.

    At least a win it was. Can't rely on Dyess to get these rebounds every game though. Going to have to get some other players involved.

    Stucky was fun to watch. That was nice how he canned those 2 tough shots at the end.
