@ The Palace 8:00 PM FSN Detroit, ESPN A likely 1st round opponent... a game full of sidebars
Re: Orlando April 11th What a fun series that would be. Probably more competitive than people think. I can almost hear the banter now!
Re: Orlando April 11th Sidebar #1 If Indiana gains just one game over the Magic before the playoffs that could make our pick # 12 instead of #15 (currently)... by being out of the playoffs they would pick ahead of Golden State, New Orleans & Atlanta ( Atlanta owns the Pacers pick). This one game on Wednesday could have a long term effect. A new fondness of the Pacers
Re: Orlando April 11th Sidebar #2 As DRE pointed out the "Magic" number is 2... maybe wrap up HCA Wednesday and start the bench observations (Amir?)
Re: Orlando April 11th The Magic had 15 dunks against Memphis yesterday! Dwight Howard was +39 on the night (+21 in the 1st quarter)! I have no real point. Just eye popping stats in a blow-out. Indiana making the playoffs would be be hilarious. We will have the honor of putting the final nail in their coffin before things get real ugly over there.
Orlando April 11 8PM Orlando April 11 8PM tv: FSN/ESPN Last game of the seasonal series as the Pistons try for a sweep over a potential 1st round matchup.
Re: Orlando April 11 8PM Time to give the starters a rest. Nobody plays for more than 22 minutes......
Gotta pin a loss on the Magic. It could mean the difference between picking 12th and 15th in the draft. I amost wish we could go back and lose a game to Indiana in order to help our draft position.
If the Magic are indeed the Pistons first round opponent, do not give them any false hope that they can beat us or they can even steal one game in the post season. On the other hand, don't show them all of your cards either.
Magic had 16 dunks last night. Howard-5, Milicic-3, Ariza-3, Battie-3, Dooling-1, and Turk-1. 32 points in the paint right there. Again, my only point is that they dunk the ball a lot. In comparison, even with all the posterizations going down, the Pistons only had 6. So, what's the key to beating the Magic? Foul the bejeezus out of Dwight Howard. Sounds like a job for Dale Davis.
Darko had 3 blocks, but how many other dunks did he have blocked by the rim?
Darko is shooting well over 50 per cent on his dunks. When he goes up for a dunk now, more often than not he might make it. The ones he misses are usually very close to going in.
He only had 1 block, but had a rare 100% shooting night. 32 Darko points in only 24 minutes of action. Also, just to clarify, Darko is converting 96% of his dunks. Darko Milicic of the Orlando Magic, NBA player stats and data from 82games.com Dwight Howard is at 93%. Sheed = 92%. JMax = 80%.
I meant dunk, not block. I'm not feeling myself today. Low blood pressure in my legs.
Dunks...blocks...same difference...when it comes to Darko... just being close counts.
Yeah...that was just off the top of my head but I knew he was over 50 %.....
It's also a little interesting that Darko has not been blocked on a single dunk attempt yet this year... yet y'all are joking about it. Dwight Howard and Sheed have been blocked on 3% of their attempts. I'm telling ya, the only reason I get caught up defending this guy is because of all the bad stats that get thrown out there by people making fun of him.
That's ironic because I get caught up in all of the bad stats defending him. lol I don't think 82games tracks blocks by the rim, so I would question those #s TaS.
Where do they track them? By the 3-point line? And who has more dunks this year, Sheed or Darko? That's right, although Sheed has played 28% more minutes, he has 20% less dunks. I'm just a little disgruntled still that our bust is providing more muscle (dunks, points in the paint, rebounding, and blocks) than our All Star PF. Sheed better flip the switch in the Playoffs, that's all I'm saying.
I feel ya bro.
