Pistons are Kings in their Palace

Something odd happened at the Palace Saturday night. The Pistons not only won two in a row, but they outscored their opponent 51-36 thanks to a dominant third quarter to narrowly escape with a 106-110 victory over the Sacramento Kings.

Key Points:

  • The Pistons with almost not defense in the first half. To extra defense in the second half that led to the Kings shooting just 31%.
  • Tayshaun Prince led the Pistons with 21 points on 9-for13 shooting with 6 boards, a steal and 3 assists.

  • Tracy McGrady left in early in the first quarter with a shin injury and didn’t return.
  • No matter, Will Bynum stepped in with 18 points and some key plays in the Pistons victory. This was one of them
  • Bynumite block by will in crunch time.

Kuester on the Block: “I had to ask somebody, ‘Was that Will?’ He had one of those games where he changed the complexion of the game.”

  • Detroit out-rebounded 45-30.
  • As is we didn’t know, Rip with another DNP while all teams involved try to get the trade done.
  • Charlie Villanueva was stellar off the bench for Detroit. CV31 with 16 points , 2 assists and 2 boards.

Villanueva: “We just buckled down in the second half, they were making everything.” “It was more of a mental thing. It was intensity, we got the stops we needed.”

  • Thank the Pistons bench for this one, who combined for 52 points.
  • Ben Gordon looking better after returning to the bench putting up 16 Saturday night.
  • Yes that was Detroit who held the Kings to just 10 points in the third quarter.
  • I’m liking what Chris Wilcox is doing every game. And boy can he throw one down with authority when he has the chance.
  • Stucktacular game from stuck who put up 19 points on 6-for-11 shooting and did a heck of a job defensively on Evans in the second half. Stuckey at the two…is number one in my book.

    I really want to see three ‘blues’ in a row. Side note: I know it is Pistons red, white, and blue, but I really liked the green for wins. On with the comment:

    From the start, this seemed like a game that would be won by the team who could lock down first. Both teams scored really well, the Kings just got out to a quicker start, but the Pistons’ 59 points in the first half is a fair effort.

    Then I loved the second half. I liked the fact that we were able to recognize the fact that our defence needed more attention, and we locked down to hold them to 36 second half points. Great performances from everyone.

    Needed this one with the tough stretch coming – it would be nice to take advantage of the Mavericks while they are down, but I can already see Nowitzki coming out and knocking down 15/15 shots, 15/15 free throws, and getting 15 rebounds. The guy is a Pistons’ killer.
