    Looks like they are still unbeaten. We lost badly to them at the Salt Lake City last season. Certainly a tough match for us.

    Wish Memo was still here (well, ok, maybe not at his current contract). Unibrow can ball.

    Utah gives us all kinds of trouble. I'm betting on serious foul trouble tonight for our bigs, so Max may be a difference maker (either good or bad).

    Put me down as a big fan of Baby Fats. This should be a great game.

    I'm staying home this time. Chauncy will need to find a different Pistons fan in the stands to point to this year.

    First test of the season. I watched the Jazz on Saturday and they looked like a confident bunch. The front court will be the key tonight as our bigs will have to stick around in the point and stay honest. Boozer averaging 15 boards a game and Memo 9.

    If they take care of the jazz tonight, I think they can run the table for the wild west :gun1: coast trip, especially since the LA Kobes have come back down to earth.

    I am looking to see how Flip plays the bench, especially tonight. Look for Utah to play their bench, they have a pretty good one.

    As stated the Jazz gives us fits, however I look for CB to abuse Fisher. Let`s match the Brahma against Boozer and see what happens!!!!!!!!

    Bucks have been doing very well. I never even really looked at their team, but it's very solid right now. Once they get Simmons back they could be a team that could very likely pull off a series victory in the playoffs. I don't think Stotts is a good coach though. Porter was better.

    So Joe D is traveling with the team... I don't recall him going out west before... scouting trip?

    This trip should show the metal of the bench... keeping an eye on how other teams benches score.

    Tough loss tonight. Can't fault the effort. Lost by 2 with a near miss by Billiups if it would have counted.

    Lost 3 points on no tolerance free throws and a bit of home cooking in crunch time when Sheed backed off on Memo causing him to take about 5 steps but Memo threw it up and in plus got the call.

    One of those road losses. Still a lot better than last season against this fully healthy and playing great Utah team.

    The good news is that there is a lot of talent on this Piston team.

    We were out executed by a slower, less-talented group.

    At times, Chauncey, Rip and Dice should have sat as they were out-of-sort at certain moments. Where was the leadership from the bench?

    The defensive concept is lacking including time times that we zone. We can't allow that many easy baskets even in the regular season.

    Our offensive sets get jammed up at key times and we turn the ball over.

    We played well enough to win by 10 but lost.

    well... you cant win em all. seemed like offensive fouls, missed FT's, and sketchy calls killed us down the stretch. looks like sheed had a monster game and our bench was solid. if rip hadn't been having an off-game we probably would have won. but i only saw the second half, what did we look like in the first?
