Gores era begins on a high note – Pistons pummel Bucks, 110-100

Posted · 9 Comments

I didn’t even know Michael Redd was still alive.  Wow.  Let me be a little selfish here, tell me what kind of a night you think I’m having:

  1. Gores buys Pistons
  2. Pistons win 110 – 100 over Bucks
  3. JoannePistonFan got her Jonas Jerebko jersey from Jonas himself
  4. No Government shutdown (I work for government)

If you said “great”, “fantastic”, “happy”, etc – I circle all of the above.  Should I play the lottery?  Anywho…

Chris Wilcox, have a game why don’t ya?  27 points and 13 boards in only 24 minutes!  Wilcox flashed reminders to us tonight of why he was a lottery pick coming out Maryland a few years ago. If you were to tell me it was Chris that was going to single handily handle the point spread in this one I would have bet against it.  He’s an athletic big, it’s just a shame that he is so inconsistent.  Rodney Stuckey followed up his big game against the Nets with another big game tonight.

  • One of my favoritest non-Pistons player ever, Michael Redd, played in his 7th straight game back from multiple catastrophic knee injuries that have basically reduced him to role player status, if he’s worthy of any status at all.
  • You can tell the Bucks are coached by Scott Skiles.  Look at the names on the bench that would/could be starting on most teams in the league: Maggette (5 minutes), Drew Gooden (29 minutes), Ilyasova, and former VCU Ram great, Larry Sanders.  I believe Skiles may have coached his way out of Milwaukee this season and the problem with that is, this team was built to his specification.
  • Charlie V hit a few nice shots tonight in his limited time on the floor.  Looks like he didn’t lose his rhythm in the time he missed with a back
  • One of my other favorite players, Earl Boykins, is reduced to single digit minutes for the Bucks – 4 points in 9 minutes
  • Greg Monroe with another solid night: 11 points, 8 boards and solid defense
  • Carlos Defino had a bad night – 0 for everything from the field and 0 points
  • What a match up of young guards – Brandon Jennings got whatever he wanted from the field (13-21 shooting) and Rodney Stuckey got just about everything he wanted as well, only off the bench
  • Detroit dominated the glass: 49 rebounds to 32 for Milwaukee
  • Only downside to tonight’s win: 14 turnovers
  • No conspiracy here:  Pistons benefit from 23 fouls called against Bucks
  • No Ben Wallace – this, friends, is the beginning of the end.  We’ll be hanging his jersey in the rafters one day just like Rodman
  • Don’t look now but, the Pistons are 2 games above .500 at home and will finish the year with a winning home record

Up next for the Detroit Gores Tom Pistons Pistons, they travel to Charlotte to take on former Duke Blue Devil Gerald Henderson and the Charlotte Bobcats.

If you have twitter you should follow JoannePistonFan (link) and congratulate her on winning the Jonas jersey from Jonas himself.  Otherwise, have a good weekend and we’ll see you on Sunday for the Bobcats preview.

    Anyone know why we signed Ben Gordon to a huge contract to play an average of 15 minutes. Seriously what the hell is going on with this team. I find myself bitching during a win.

    • edt says:

      ben gordon has played poorly for two years. You can blame it on the coach if you like and that he “doesn’t fit into the system” here. Q wants to win games. Ben Gordon has never played defense, and right now he doesn’t have offense.

      Some say that if you give him more minutes he’ll get better. That he’s a volume shooter and needs volume. He was given a lot of minutes while Rip was benched and nothing happened, so it’s hard for me to believe that theory.

      I thought it was a nice win, I have no reason to bitch.

  2. Outside of the wings losing everything about today went right for just about everyone.

    I don’t think Wilcox is inconsistent. He just gets in foul trouble a lot and then can’t contribute to the team…. I’ve always enjoyed watching him play since his Seattle days.. hope the Pistons re-sign him!

    • Col says:

      Must be time for a new contract the way Wilcox is playing, if they are thinking of resigning him its gotta be another 2 year deal any longer and he’ll disappear again.

    Can we get two more wins for 30? You can see how high our expectations are this year ;)

  5. gordbrown says:

    There’s lots of evidence that Pistons are clearly a better team than Milwaukee. And yet the Bucks have a better record. Why is that? Also was very surprised to see Pistons with more trips to the line. There were lots and lots of Bucks fouls that didn’t get called (even Blaha commented on it). At least two of Stuckey’s turnovers should have been fouls on the Bucks. At least Hamilton played in more than just the first quarter, his steal after turning the ball over in the fourth was classic.

    just glad the record is better than last year’s.

    Looking for even better record next year.

    Pistons NEED a true shot blocking center. Benson! Benson!

  7. N1ck says:

    A PF to play in pair with Monroe, a PG to pass some balls (Stuckey off the bench is just fine…), a center off the bench to pair with our defence specialist CV and with the return of the JJ this could be a 40 win team = playoffs.

    Bye bye Prince, T-Mac, Wallace (respect) and Maxiell.

    Welcome Tom Gores and a NEW COACH.

    Pistons forever, Miami go play in traffic.
