Someone is going to land a quality center this offseason.
For sure. I hope he stays with us.
Your prayers were answered!
Scoe, if we've learned anything about this group of guys is- they play the 4th Q well ! 4thQ
New NBA record for a non-NBA level player that can't jump.
Wait for the Leecap friend. I am sure there will be lots of analysis about how he can't play in the NBA.
KCP was on the forum chopping block over the last few days. Today he goes for 23 points, plus 26, 8 for 14 shooting, 5 three pointers, 2-2 FT, 3 rebounds, 8 assists.
So ... Does he disappear on offense for 3 games or 4 now?
The Suns guys hammered the Pistons and Van Gundy in particular. Several times they mentioned how negative he is - referring to him as Van Grumpy each time - and how it negatively impacted the Pistons.
That's weird because George and Greg have nothing to say but nice stuff!
Us when Baynsey leaves?
That's impressive that the Suns analysts follow all of the Pistons game and can study the impact of the coach's demeanor.
They even talked about it at halftime. This was multiple people all making the same point separately. They said how bad the Pistons body language was and that they weren't having fun/didn't like each other.
The Sums are young. They were missing a ton of guys. They didn't have a tenth of the Pistons talent and yet they still played together offensively better than the Pistons did.
You can blame the season outcome on one positive game and one negative game. If the Pistons had lost this one to a team of 2nd and third stringers and had missed the playoffs, it would be this game. If they still miss it by one game, blame it that 9 point quarter vs the Raptors on Friday night.
I saw the Pistons having lots of fun tonight. Every time they showed the bench, they were high-fiving, jumping up and down, and laughing. Even your favorite player is Tweeting about his fun. View: https://twitter.com/DetroitPistons/status/840716149507674112
Well, if we don't make the playoffs, there will be 40+ losses that we can point to...
35 points and 35 rebounds from our centers tonight! Baynes' best game ever and KCP dominating. Lots of hustle plays from the Pistons tonight. O rebounding, challenges, loose ball effort, etc. And we persevered from some touchy calls. The KCP/ Dre hand off pick and roll was deadly. This was the rare game where our opponent got off more shots and made fewer. They only had 4 turnovers!!!
I was disappointed in their play and I had turned it off at halftime and switched to one of the NCAA games...and then remembered that the Pistons were playing. When I switched back to it they were down by 5, 67-62 with 4 minutes left. At that point the offense started to click and the Pistons finished the quarter on a 15-5 run with Pope and Baynes doing most of the damage. The Suns almost duplicated their first half effort missing about 10 out of their first fourteen shots and the Pistons turned a 2 point third quarter lead into an 11 point lead 3 minutes into the quarter and we just had to hope that they Friday 4th quarter performance didn't duplicate itself. Our centers were monsters out there>> Dre-18-18, Baynes 13-17 and Boban 4 pts in less than 2 minutes of GT. Not to be outdone our starting guards scored 37 points with KCP delivering 8 assists and 5/9 from deep. Although Toby was 2-10 we will give him pass, but Ish needs to be reeled in before he gets as bad as he did tonight with the 2-9 shooting. His job is to find the cutting or open man and he was raining bricks when other guys were open....especially in the second quarter when the Suns mounted their own comeback.
