  1. Keith (Australia) says:

    If Daye gets another DNP since Max is starting then Kuester needs his head examined.

  2. Tycoon says:

    Dirk might just score 40

  3. At least Pistons have started to run offense in the last 3 mins.
    We had something terrrible in offense at the beginning, but when T-Mac is there, everything seems to be ok

  4. Rip to Tay alley oop sighting….

  5. Hagop says:

    is the live chat supposed to be working? i’m having trouble it won’t open

  6. Keith, tycoon, hate to say it, but you were right…

  7. rai_from_the_philippines says:

    again, it’s the little things that sometimes wins the games. Rip, Tay, and TMac aren’t Ben Wallace types free throw shooters. They can make free throws! if they should have made all of their FT’s, we would’ve won the game by 1 point.

  8. Tycoon says:

    I think its the matchups that caused us the game. Everyone except Q knew this 4th quarter rally is coming.

  9. Drew says:

    Valiant effort. I only saw the last four minutes. I know we had a little lead, but you can’t be too disappointed knowing we’re on the road in Dallas. We put up a good fight last year in Dallas as well.

    I remember when, even when DET had a good team, Dallas always seemed to blow us out, especially in its own home.

  10. Keith (Australia) says:

    Well i am officially pointing the finger right at Kuester.

    1. He continues to play small ball at the end of games and it consistently doesn’t work.
    2. He continues to play Daye out of position when he does play him and when he has a chance to play him in his right position he gives him DNP-CD’s.
    3. He always falls back to the guys who have “done it before” even if they are playing like garbage.
    4. Insists on playing slow when the majority of our players are setup to play at a faster tempo.

    I am yet to see anything good coming from the bench at all, am I alone in this evaluation??

    • junior says:

      nothing good coming from the bench? are you serious? we are 3rd in the league in points from the bench with 40.3 per game. also we have two of the top four scorers off the bench in cv31 and bg. other than that last comment i do agree with you fully.

  11. Tycoon says:

    i mean *cost us the game from my previous post. Keith said it right, Maxiel at center in the endgame is a disaster. No wonder we could’nt get defensive rebound in the dying second when we were only down 2.
