Pistons vs Clippers

Posted · 33 Comments

Detroit starts their four game West Coast trip Sunday afternoon in LA against the 8-24 Clippers. The good news – the Clippers, who are just 3-13 at home, are on a six game losing streak, and are a perfect 0-9 against the Eastern Conference this season. The bad news – it’s Sunday! Detroit has yet to win a Sunday game this season.

Don’t fear Pistons fan, Curry says the Sunday jinx is nonsense.

“We talked about that when we did it. We’re past that now,” Curry said Friday. “The losses on Sundays, what happened is some games we should have won, (but) the way we played on Sundays we didn’t take care of it.”

“Then you start playing some really tough teams that would be hard to beat on any day,” Curry said. “The Hawks right now are tough to beat any day at home. But it happened to be another early Sunday game.

“So the reality is I think we’re playing better in that situation and we’re coming out pretty focused on what we’ve got to do to be a good team. That’s where it lies regardless of who we’re playing. We’re looking at how we need to come out and play.” Via The Detroit Free Press

The Pistons will again be without Rip Hamilton (groin) and Rasheed Wallace (foot). Antonio McDyess is still a game day decision with sore ribs.

Meanwhile, Walter Sharpe hit a late game three for the Mad Ants to break a deadlock with 27 seconds left in the game.

Tip off is at 3:30 P.M. and will be locally broadcast on FSN . If you can’t watch the broadcast, tune into 1130 AM The Fan. Can’t do either, follow the game on NBA.com.

You can bet the Pistons will be well represented today in LA. I know plenty of team N4S members that will be at Staples cheering our boys on.

  2. Atlee says:

    whooo hooo!

    im goin to go represent for our DEETROIITT PISTONSS!!!

    This hoax about Pistons not able to win on Sundays is nonsense. Even after the Pistons win tonight I would not be to happy. Why? Because the team they are playing are 8 for 24(.333333…).They have 0 wins against the the Eastern Conference. Also they are only 3 for 13 at home. All which Natalie mentioned. If the pistons can win games against teams with current records like Boston, LA Lakers, Cleveland, Orlando, Atlanta, New Orleans, San Antonio, and Denver than I would be happy.( Teams with a record over .650). Because as we all know every team no matter what record they had in the season play 10 times better and harder in the playoffs than they did in the season. And the Pistons are the only team who seem to not improve much in the playoffs. Atleast not as much as the other teams do. So if I were the Pistons I would play the regular season as best as I can; Find out every mistake and problems bringing us down; fix them, and than store consistency and the ability to improve drastically during a game. Also we need Practice. Sheed on his three’s, fade aways, dunks, rebounding, stealing, and blocking. Rip on his defense, threes, jumpshots, and layups. Tay on his dunks, layups, hooks, threes, and defense. AI and Rodney on getting assits, making plays, usual point guard offense, and usual point guard defense. All pistons players should paractice on free throws, layups, defense, and jump shots. If this can happen correctly than I can gurantee no team can stop us and we will win the title.

    All players must also work on getting better stamina.READ THE POST ABOVE THIS ONE.

  5. TDP says:

    If Zach Randolph is a no-go, we shouldn’t have anything to worry about. Today Maxiell comes out of his semi-slump (which, arguably, isn’t totally his fault).

  6. TDP says:

    Whatsittoya, as I read your post(s) I was reminded of the movie Billy Madison…

    This portion, in particular: “Mr. Madison, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”

  7. Bobby says:

    I’ll be at the game! Let’s end this Sunday non-sense!

  8. Aaron Larson says:

    I’ll be there! Cali Love for my Detroit Players!

  9. Dave says:

    I’m tired of all of the complaining about the Pistons.
    People complain when they are losing, and they complain when they are winning.MAKE YOUR MIND UP!

    1st year coach, feeling things out with his rotation, lots of young guys getting playing time, 3 all star caliber guards to contend with, I mean c’mon! Give them a freakin’ break!

    Have the beat some sub par teams? Yup. Have they also beat some playoff bound/title contending teams? Yup. The fact is the Piston’s are NOT going to win every game they play(as much as we would like them to),and it gets tiring listening to people constantly tearing them down,no matter whether they are winning or losing.

    Get off of their backs, and give some love to YOUR DETROIT PISTONS!

  10. Chad says:

    My friends are going to the game.. im in SD but I have to work.. I’m jealous.

  11. augustslady says:

    Some people are not happy unless they biotch!
    Makes them feel better I guess….
    Could be worse guys,fords could own the stones….
    Win or lose they represent the D!
    Show some love guys!

  12. Dominic says:

    @ TDP: LMFAOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

  13. bobbysteels says:

    I’ll be there courtside. Section 110 facing the pistons

  14. Richie says:

    Thank you, TDP, I was going to disect the absoutely absurd ramblings of “whatsittoya’” regarding how stupid it is to go through ever position and tell them they need to practice the things those positions do, but you hit the nail on the heat more accurately.

  15. Jason says:

    Time for win number 7 on this streak!

  16. Jason says:

    No way this team should be up on us

  17. Jason says:

    Allen Iverson needs to stop with all of these ridiculous passes…OMG Stuckey is a beast! What a dunk!

  18. pistonssuck says:

    Pistons are a mfckin joke of the team. they wiull be swept in first playoff round if they reach there at all…
    Granddaddys Sheed , Iverson, Dyess, they play as grandmothers :P Fire that idiot Dumars.

  19. Whatsittoya says:

    Thsnk you pistonssuck

  20. Whatsittoya says:

    Looks like Pistons Ar going to lose. 87 to 86 . 9 secounds left.

  21. Whatsittoya says:

    Never mind Pistons now winning 88 to 87. Iverson gets a goaltens call. 3 seconds left.

  22. Whatsittoya says:

    PISTONS WIN

  23. Clutch says:

    Iverson is clutch yo!!!!!!

  24. ski dp3 says:

  28. The Fluidics says:
