    Pistons come back home for much needed 2 game homestand after completing their 3 game in 4 night stretch. The 20-17 Toronto Raptors come into town featuring Chris Bosh.

    Pistons won the last meeting in Toronto 101-85.

    Hopefully the guys who played in Charlotte and NY stay there and real team comes out to play. Flip should stay in the Big Apple though.. and take a break...see if the TP or Curry can coach these guys....:stirthepot:

    I'll definitely be watching this game since the Pistons will be on the warpath after losing ugly tonight.

    I'm still a big Carlo Delfino fan and he's so much fun to watch and he seems to have found a home in Toronto. The Pistons match up really well with Toronto and this might be a preview of a second round match-up come the playoffs.

    I look for Sheed to come out with fire in his eyes tomorrow night and he'll have his hands full guarding Chris Bosh who is on a scoring spree lately. I would love to see Walter Hermann come in and play some and give the Pistons some international flavor.

    DRE I'll raise you Herrmann's 1-7 with Tay's 0-10 night (kidding here). Really just burn the tape from tonight and let the players start fresh on Tuesday.

    Maybe the Pistons and the Raptors can work out a trade on Tuesday and pick off a player they like and exchange them. So the Pistons can have Juan Dixon and the Raptors will take Flip Murray in return.

    Something was wrong with the team in general yesterday - can't expect from a newcommer, who gets 2 min every third game, to save the boat.
    Jarvis shoots 1-7 almost every night (0-5 NY), plays no defense and still gets his chance regularly...
    Herrmann can at least play some defense (Novitzki).

    Love the Raptors. Bosh has excellent footwork, and is really active. Calderon is such a good story, being an undrafted FA and now one of the top 10 PGs (IMO) in the NBA.

    And Anthony Parker is really superb.

    I love watching the Pistons plays the Raps.

    Regular season games are like buses. If the first one along smells bad, just get off and another will be coming your way.

    My daughter is going with me. So far, about 30 regular season games worth, she had never been to a loss. So we are pretty safe.

    Let us know what her record is when you all attend a post season game. If it is as good as the regular season then when the playoff tickets go on sale, i will send you some money for tickets and plane fare for her flight to Boston for game seven. :burgereater::laugh:

    She has seen a loss in the post season once, but we won the series.

    hooper should retire and your honey should take hooper's place. Breaking Auerbach's record is surely worth of it.

    Lee, you should go have a chat with Joe Dumars before the game.

    Alright, that was a nice cure for what ailed the Pistons last game. Strangely, the end of the quarter in each of the first 3 periods was disastrous each time, as the Pistons blew most of their lead at the end of the 1st and 2nd and several points off a big lead at the end of the 3rd. But it was that 3rd quarter that was the difference, as they extended a 1 point halftime lead to a huge 18 point difference.

    Rip had what must have been close to a career high with 39 points on 16-22 from the floor, 5-6 on 3s. CB had 20, and Dice was huge with 13 boards and 7 steals! The Raptors had a few stretches were they couldn't stop turning it over. Delfino made up for his scoreless first game against the Pistons earlier this season with 14 all in the 2nd quarter, but he didn't score again after halftime.

    yeah sigh :mmph:at 6'10 he could have been that center Joe was looking for in Darko...after all we didn't even have Sheed at the time of that draft and Bosh was taller than Big Ben....
