    Horrible coaching, to have Blake start the game, then Baynes come in anytime Blake is not on the floor. So we never have a decent defensive team out there, at any point in the game. Leave it to SVG to find the worst possible rotation for the game. It would help a lot if neither Blake nor Baynes were even on the roster. Coach should have a serious talk with the GM on that.

    Sure, Joe Johnson hit some tough shots to win it for Miami in the end. But you make your own luck. With Blake and Baynes doing zero on D, they sucked the energy out of the gym for the Pistons.

    I watched the Indiana game simultaneously to this one. Spoiler alert. Spoiler alert. We are stuck at 8th now, Cleveland will play us in the first round.

    Dre had quite a game, a ton of offensive rebounds. Baynes is such a drop off.

    Dinwiddie did not do that bad, especially considering how little he has played this season. What we saw last season, the more time he got the better he got. No, practice does not equate to in game, in the NBA experience. We should have started Dinwiddie for this one, and had SJ run the offense for the 2nd unit. And Joel Anthony should have been the backup center. Tolliver - only need to play the guy in emergencies. We could have added Hilliard to the rotation for this one, played Morris more at power forward, and not use Tolliver.

    Fact is, even if we won this one, and the next, it does not mean Indiana would have lost one. Maybe, if you want to give SVG just a little bit of a benefit of a doubt, he does not want to play his best rotations right now but rather prefers to save the best for the playoffs. Believe that if you wish, nothing I have seen from the guy makes me think he will do anything different other than march out defensively lacking players and just ignore it, blame all the bad on lack of effort - when he is the one who is lacking of effort to put a decent roster together and have it ready to play.

    The Pistons have already won more than 11 games over last season and they are heading to the playoffs for the first time in 7 years.

    SVG is in consideration for both GM of the Year and Coach of the Year.

    The truth.
    The Bounce has a very big summer ahead of him.

    I disagree.
    Toronto has some large gaps as well as the Pistons. The last couple of years they have been where the Pistons have become.
    Never look at the ultimate winners, but the sly ones ahead of you in the line. They are the dots.
    And all lines are composed of dots.
    Stop praying for anomalies, unless they are reproducible.

    You are always true-to-form:
    As the darken cubical begins to shed light from the sliding lattice door, a calm voice protrudes.
    It's first words are to bring up a wanting history: How long has it been...
    Can we at least project that this particular framework speaks from above to lower.
    This certainly disturbed Dostoyevsky:

    But, as you see: this is an event and not a pattern.
    And some patterns become associations.
    If so, now your talking!

    I think "the Bounce" just needs more playing time. He and Meat both. It was nice to see "the Bounce" get some minutes at backup point guard last night.

    Miami has really put together a decent team after LeBron's departure. Joe Johnson is really old but he sure can shoot the ball.

    Absolutely no offensive game. Lee is boring me with his defense only smack.

    I would go with "a calm voice INtrudes". As voices can waft like a nice aroma.

    "Wade didn't score until there was 4:14 left in the first half. He had not been scoreless that long at the start of a game since March 17, 2006, against Charlotte, according to STATS."
    *
    To compare KCP to a great SG would be just mean and wrong. But he often doesn't score until mid 3rd Q.

    It's kind of an optical allusion as to where the basket sits.

    Lee, that's just not true. Van Gundy blames Drummond when the D is bad.
