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.
