The Pistons vs. The Raptors

The 2-10 #Pistons will be hosting the 3-9 Toronto Raptors Friday night at the Palace of Auburn Hills. The Pistons hope to rebound after the atrocious outing Wednesday night against Orlando, while the Raptors desperately need a win too.

  • The good: The Raptors have dropped five of the last six matchups against the Pistons.
  • The bad: Both the Pistons and the Raptors.
  • The unknown: Will Brandon Knight ever wake up and start playing basketball like we know he can?

Tip off is at 7:30 pm and will be broadcast on Fox Sports . If you can’t catch the game on TV, catch it on the radio over at 97.1 the Ticket.

    Been a long time fan of this site, but all the recent Knight bashing is getting lame..I understand he’s started slow shooting the ball this season..but he is currently 14th in the league in assists among PGs. Ahead of guys like Irving and Walker, not to mention he has a better assist to turnover ratio..I’m sorry but BK is not whats wrong with this team..They lack overall talent and I find it very telling that guys like Tay and Max still start..Even with Max playing the way he has, he has no place on this team going forward..I’ve seen plenty of progression from ALL of our young guys and steps back from a guy like Stuckey..This team still needs a giant overhaul roster wise..

    • I’m not bashing Knight, but realized others have. I’m just clearly stating he’s taken a step back. He just doesn’t look like the player he was last year, but I’m sure he’ll get back up to speed soon.
      I don’t think anyone is saying the teams woes fall Knight.

      They’re just awful.

        I think knight is playing a lot better this year than last. This year he is adequate, in the top 25 for starting point guards in the nba.

        How much more can he improve that’s the question.

        • detroitKG says:

          Well tonight stat wise he wasn’t there, but he came up huge in the CLUTCH. I like to see that from him! THis should be a huge confidence boost for the guys! Dre with a monster game as well! MAn needs to start or at least have more time with Moose. It’s so obvious this team is at it’s best when they play together.

          • Markov7 says:

            he came up clitch against toronto woow now we ll se nuthin from him for how lomg 7-8 games?????like watchin a re-run of lethal weapon on national tv pfffffffff

        • Jake says:

          So he’s better than 5 starting point guards? What an accomplishment.

    • Noah says:

      Tay shouln’t be getting heat about starting. He’s been playing fairly well this season, and I don’t see him as a major problem right now. Jonas hasn’t earned the right to usurp him right niw with his current play.

      I’d prefer Drummond starting over Max, but it’s really not a big deal as long as Drummond’s playing time goes up. The Toronto game was a a step in the right direction as far as that’s concerned.

    We are just begging for the raptors to win. And we all know Detroit in the 4th..

    • edt says:

      closing out with the bull moose party drummond & monroe that’s what the fans have wanted and maybe now we’ll start with it.

  3. Drew says:

    I kept thinking how Knight’s free throw miss hurt us with such a close score, but he made up for it. Made up all right!

  4. Drew says:

    Very prescient having Brandon Knight as the “unknown” for tonight. He woke up for sure.

  5. Brandon was terrific! Moose was great! Andre with lucky 13 and 13 his first career double-double.

    The Palace was Rockin

  6. Geenee says:

    that was so hard at last night. All played clutch and struggle. I wish BK and DreDrummond plays to struggle. Drummond is not next Kwame. he was so bright.

  7. RealGMToni says:

    Great game and great to see Andre and Greg together tonight. I been looking at Derrick Williams a 6″7 241lbs SF from Minnesota Timberwolves they are not using him or playing him and was Drafted #2 in 2011. I would like to see us try get him for those bench wormers we have in our roster like ” Charlie or Daye” maybe both! This guy to me is a beast and a great player will love to see him be our SF because we know we getting no Star anytime soon here.

    Minnesota Timberwolves

    • Drew says:

      Derrick Williams is such a talented player, but he’s also a tweener for the NBA. Has the game of a PF, but kinda short, and he’s too slow for SF. See Jonas Jerebko.

  9. Col says:

    exactly what i was thinking toni, dumars needs to see if they’ll take stuckey. stuckeys done here for me, roy’s just gone down makes sense. aint no way they take charlie.

    • RealGMToni says:

      I will give them Stucky for DWilliams anyday Stucky Day Charlie Tay to me are done and wish not to see them in our roster anymore. Drew said about Jonas Jerebko the thing is the guy to me this year sucks he is not the same player wee seen in his Rookie year. D Williams is not like Jonas, Williams is more faster explosive and can knock buckets and JJ this year to me just SUCK!
