    The Bucks visit the Palace with thoughts of that OT loss to the Pistons at the Bradley Center fresh on their minds. Hopefully OT will not be needed in this game.

    Finally, a game. Seems like ages since I've seen any basketball.

    Pistons by 20.

    Sheed said the defense will be better with Dyess starting instead of Amir. This will be something to watch at the beginning of the game.

    He also said this:
    I'm not sure he's really on board with this... or anything else regarding MC Lose-a-lot.

    How can you not be fired up for this game? The playoffs are starting early with one game separating these 2 juggernauts in the win column.

    We need to show Hollinger that we are marginially better than a depleted Bucks team so that his mathematical model doesn't turn out to be accurate.

    Not really locker room white board motivation, but it's something.

    Lets hope the Pistons who didn't go to Phoenix studied tapes on how to shut down giant killer and penetrator Ramon Sessions......I know he and the Bucs coaches put up big a cheer when they heard Dice will be starting tonight. :eyebrows:

    Unfortunately/fortunately, the pistons will not be making the playoffs this year.

    I think they will still get in b/c of their cake schedule over the last few weeks of the season. .500 probably does it. We may dip below briefly, but we will get some feel-good momentum toward the end.

    And then, as we have already discussed, we are only 5 sprained ankles away from another title.

    The Pistons will make a second half push, if they don't complete fly apart.

    I am anxious to see them in the first round this year, because it will actually be a dogfight.

    Yea, if the 5 sprained ankles happen to Rip, AI, Tay, Dyess, and Sheed, then we will have a Championship lineup. I'm sure of this. I read about it in the Rotations thread a while back.

    pg - Stuckey
    sg - Afflalo
    sf - Sharpe
    pf - Maxiel
    c - Amir

    That is true. You can't win if you don't play... or in our case, if we barely make the playoffs.

    If they end up as a 7th or 8th seed it won't be a dogfight..... it'll be a downright massacre.

    Anyway, a chance for the men in blue to make some history tonight... 3-0 against the Bucks this year and looking for their first ever sweep of the Bucks in the 61 year history of the franchise! Let's get it gone!

    Go Pistons! :cheers:

    Since I have to watch 24 tonight, no BBall for me. Did you all know that the moon shines bright even on nights the Pistons are playing?

    Sessions scores 45 tonight.......LOL

    Even with the Bucks injuries, I don't see how the Pistons could be 7 point favorites tonight. The Bucks will cover that comfortable and may even win the game....
