The 4-7 are back home to host the defending back to back World Champion 9-2 Lakers Wednesday night at the Palace. This one won’t  be easy for the Pistons whose  inner turmoil has gotten much more press than their play. Though a home game, you can bet there will be a sea for yellow Kobe jerseys at the Palace.

    As strong as the Lakers are, this should be winnable. The Pistons got a day’s rest and hopefully has regrouped, while this is LA’s second of back-to-back games.

    One thing for this game though, I hope Q have Daye come off the bench as he will be matched up with Gasol.

    Go Pistons! Play hard and play right!

    1:48 left in the 2nd quarter..

    Line up:
    Lakers
    Bryant – SG
    Fisher – PG
    Gasol – C
    Odom – PF
    Artest – SF

    Pistons
    Stuckey – PG
    McGrady – SG
    Maxiell – C
    Prince – SF
    Daye – PF

    Jeez man, this line-up is so mismatched except for the point guard and small forward spots.

    C’mon Q, a regular fan can see this, why can’t you?

  5. Th3 Answ3r says:

    Lmao, there’s more cheering to the Lakers rather than to the Pistons. Lmfao…

  6. Th3 Answ3r says:

    more cheering for*

  7. Drew says:

    Let’s at least outscore them in this last quarter. That’ll make for some consolation, I guess.

  8. Th3 Answ3r says:

    Omgggggggggg Wilcox is playing O_O

  9. Thor says:

    This team is not buying into Q system because it dont make good sense what he does or calls out. Prince can see that and can Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles. Where is Laimbeer……huh! Give him a change to coach. Q has no respect from his own player, come on, man!!!!!!

  10. edt says:

    attention all cry-babies, leave the pool, put on your street clothes and exit the building

    We are going to have a real problem trading that guy.

  11. edt says:

    also pls quit with the calling for a new coach.

    what you need to do is the next time you see karen davidson yell at her to sell the team already

    nothin is gonna move until then, nothing nothing nothing and everyone knows it

  12. The Fan says:

    Agreed,

    I believe Prince to be cancerous at the moment.

  13. It’s getting more and more ugly when people blame anyone any game we play.
    RIP was ejected – let’s blame him.
    Prince got caught in the incident with Q – blame him.
    Wilcox is a lazy asshole – blame him
    Stuckey had zillion poinst and shots but no assists – blame him

    Nohing will change until the team feel uncertaincy, feel that they don’t know who they belong to, what will happen after new owner come.
    And something WILL happen, so no one knows in what direction this team will head tomorrow. Or maybe the day after tomorrow. Or in what time new owner will buy the Pistons.

    So any player has the second guess in his head. No understanding that this is solid system they work in, no understanding that they will work like they’d work for Sloan, for example.
    Every player understands now he or Q will be gone sooner or later.
    No sense of urgency and overachievements like players would try to show if they’d play for LA Lakers, for example.

    I mean, c’mon, every player knows that. Well, I do. Any player has different motivators for himself.
    The motivation by wins and example is one of the greatest things that can lead a player to the new heights.
    When you are the Laker or Celtic, you know that you can play, and you can PLAY!!! That means your effort can be at maximum level, but if wins and the big goal you REALLY can acheive motivates you, your maximum level doubles up. If your motivation is to stay with a certain team to play for a certain coach with a certain system to have a REAL possibility to win it all or to move with the team higher, get over the hump – you don’t have to second guessing. You just play ball, tryin’ to be helpful to the system, the team, the coach.
    Now, the Pistons have none of that. No goals, no beleive in Q, nothing is clear about the direction.
    So players are trying to do what they do to improve their value, to improve the value of the team. Nothing more than that, as I think.

    Sorry for my english again, I’m from Russia

    Best play from the pistos against the lakers is when Daye threw Gasol to the ground…now that is the Detroit Brand of B-Ball I’m used to seeing. Let’s take a look into the mind of Ben Gordon for a sec…is it me or does it seems like he’s just going through the motions after he started for a few games and got put back on the bench because of Rips “Seniority”. He has to know that he deserves to start over Rip and all Rip has to say is that he is ready and Gordon doesn’t play the same again, with the exception of the Sac game. He is Prince like in his emotions and game play…like he’s a Zombie out there. He still hitting his shot though…in 2K11 i got him starting over Rip..I wish can use my PS3 remote to controll coach Q sometimes too, Cause Gordon and CV should be starting..I do like Daye though but him and CV should switch roles…but keep the same mins.

    did you notice when gasol got up and went over to daye and told him “Dont foul like that, if you have to foul, put your body up, but what you did is too dangerous and you’ll always get a flagrant for it”. he was trying to help a rookie.

    its ok for a smaller guy fouls pretty hard, so someone like will bynum is able to foul harder, but daye is so tall that it looks worse when he fouls that hard.

    same with shaq by the way, shaq barely touches guys when he fouls because he would pick up a flagrant in an instant, and other nba players are allowed to tackle shaq and not pick up a flagrant because he’s big and is able to take it.

    daye cant be fouling like that he has to adjust his play. The lakers I felt understood that we . . . . we just suck, so they took it easy on us, so it wasnt as much of a blowout as it could have been.

    Kobe could have scored 80 points against us yesterday.
