    On December 14, the Pistons were 14-13. They lost 5 in a row and have not seen .500 since.....until today (33-33).

    I thought Tobias was the player of the game, although everyone played well.

    His best play was hitting Leuer for an alley-oop from the weakside of the baseline. Haven't seen that before.

    It was good to see Lure bounce back after he laid an egg against the Cavs. He seems to do that about every 5th game or so.

    Van Gundy has got to go! The Pistons were up 15 with 3 minutes to play. They weren't going to lose the game if they started shooting on their own basket. The Knicks start intentionally fouling. Drummond is splitting his FT's and Van Gundy, the little puss, is sitting there shaking his head.

    You know what you're getting at this point. When the going gets tough Van Gundy goes home. How he works up the nerve to show his face publicly is beyond me.

    I don't like starting Harris. The same players might end up playing the same minutes but I think it subtly changes the team from emphasizing its' size to emphasizing its' shooting.

    Harris and Morris are their best forward pairing, but they're like candy. Too much will give you a tummy ache. Harris off the bench is a jab. A constant, steady jab.

    The Knicks had no chance of winning playing against the Pistons size. Their one chance of winning was to get in a shootout and to get Drummond chasing their big guys around outside the 3 point line. That's the kind of game Van Gundy wants to play though. I think he still sees these guys as a 118 ppg 3pt gunners.

    I am usually in agreement with pulling Dre, but normally this happens in a more tight game. In this case, the lead was about 16 points. I would have left Drummond in until the lead got down to 10.

    Dre split his first two. With the second hacking, Drummond missed the first free throw which almost broke the backboard. That's when SVG signaled for Baynes. Dre hit the second FT, but his exit was already in motion.

    Drummond doesn't appear to have his feelings hurt by SVG like you do.

    I wonder what you would have said if we had lost.

    I don't like winning games and looking good in the first half either. It's setting us up for disappointment in Game 3 of the Finals.

    To what end? Dre knows he sucks at FTs already. I know it upsets @Ernie the Slow Adult@Ernie the Slow Adult to see SVG being paternal and caring towards Dre, but pulling him was the right thing to do with the game in hand. There was nothing for Dre or the Pistons to prove at that point.

    The team is playing great, they're winning, and they're having fun. Not sure what you don't like about that.

    He's messing with it and won't leave well enough alone. You can't fold at the first sign of stress.

    What you call "fold", others simply call it "winning".

    That was a nice glance when he could have just been focusing on his own move.

    Some people aren't happy when we win. It's unfortunate because we could be losing.

    He was so dialed in, he could look to get other guys involved because he was drawing all of the defensive attention.

    As mad as I get at these guys (play to play, night to night), I do know they are young, and I pray they will continue to get wiser and make better decisions.

    Any time the game is out of reach one way or the other, I would be sitting all starters.
