The Pistons vs The Bucks

The 5-10 Pistons are hosting the 5-9 Milwaukee Bucks Friday night at the Palace. The Bucks, will look for a win to avoid their first five game losing streak since the 2008-2009 season.

The Bucks are one of the best defensive teams in the league limiting opponents to a league low 90.5 points per game and a 42% shooting percentage.

The stats prove Detroit’s affinity to collapse in the third quarter. Detroit is shooting a league worst 38.9 percent in the quarter.

    I would say it is a must try something new game.
    A win is always good but something new needs to be tried.
    Gordon starting or Monroe starting something to breathe some life into the lineup.
    Coach cannot stay pat cause it is not working.

  3. Some games ago we could predict Daye’s DNP. I want something good and unpredictable like Monroe for 25+mins and BG to start

  4. Keith (Australia) says:

    Well good ol reliable Kuester just rolled out the same starting lineup.

    How exciting.

  5. What’s up with my eyes?! It’s just me or we’re shootin’ 65%vs30%of the Bucks?! WOW!
    Really, what this team can do is to shoot lights out!

  6. I just saw the most stupid shot of the season – it was Ben Gordon in a slow fast break 1 vs 5 putting up a 3 that nearly hit the iron

  7. edt says:

    rashit, steve nash makes the pull up 3 a lot, so does chauncey billups, if you make that shot it really demoralizes the other team, it helps send the message to the other team they should lay down no way to win this game, and if you miss, well it’s worth a try especially ben gordon.

    this game is no surprise, we really look like a playoff team when we play with effort. I think it helped that stuckey got the fouls and sat a lot, he’s our best player but when he gets this much rest he can play a lot harder.

  8. James (Australia) says:

    Stuckey looked like a PG tonight. It is frustrating that he can’t do this routinely. He made the right passes – at the right time – and he picked his time to shoot at the right time. It helped that Hamilton was also intent on getting the ball moving.

    I’m glad that we are winning these sort of games, but we really need to win one against an opponent of note before I’m happy with where we are at. We versed an injury-depleted team and belted them. That is what we are supposed to do, now how about winning @Orlando next week.
