The Pistons take on the 56-14 Los Angeles Lakers tonight at The Palace of Auburn Hills. At this point, especially after the loss in Chicago, the Pistons need every game to help secure a spot in the Playoffs. The Pistons, who have lost six of their last eight, are in seventh place in the Eastern Conference, one game ahead of Chicago.
Detroit will again be without Allen Iverson, who wall called out on Tuesday during the TNT telecast about the validity of his injury by Reggie Miller. Whatever the the reason Allen Iverson is not with this team right now I always had the same feeling about Allen Iverson that Reggie Miller does.
I was never a huge AI fan, but the one thing I always thought about him, besides his great game, was the fact that he played no matter what. When he got here I specifically said that anything short of a bullet wound, Iverson would play.
Do you remember this?
Rasheed Wallace and Richard Hamilton will not play in tonight’s game against the Lakers.
Something special about tonight’s FOX Sports broadcast of the game:
“For the first time, FOX Sports Detroit’s collection of channels will present simultaneous telecasts of the same game, but from two different perspectives, when the Pistons take on the Los Angeles Lakers at the Palace on Thursday, March 26.
The traditional game coverage will appear on FOX Sports Detroit and in high-definition on FOX Sports Detroit HD.
Meanwhile, FOX Sports Detroit PLUS presents a “Match-up Cam” telecast, with a devoted camera isolating on key battles throughout the game among the many stars on each team.”
Now that sound great, hopefully this becomes a regular feature for FOX.
Tip off is at 7:30 PM and will be locally broadcast on FSN. If you can’t catch the broadcast, listen locally on WDFN 1130 AM or trough your computer at NBA.com
Leave your thoughts in the comments and feel free to be as descriptive as can be while I’m on the disabled list, your comments will help keep me in the loop. I thought I would be up an running a bit quicker, but I had a little setback the last couple of days. And if you need a doctors note I can give you one. My injury actually shows up on an MRI, so there should be no questioning my condition. Thanks for being patient.
