Back On Track Against The Bobcats

Posted · 6 Comments
Calderon-Pistons-vs-Bobcats

Say what you will about the #Bobcats and their record because the #Pistons 105-99 victory didn’t come easy against the team with the worst record in the NBA. It took a combined 40 points from Greg Monroe and Brandon Knight and every one of the 48 minutes for Detroit to get their 22nd win of the season.
Key Points:

  • Rodney Stuckey had a solid night, but it was  his back to back three-pointer plays in the fourth helped the Pistons make a solid run in the fourth quarter and then take control. Stuckey finished with 12 points on 5-of-11 shooting with seven boards and three assists in thirty minutes.
  • Stuckey and Bynum and possible Jonas are the players names that seem to be floating around at the trade deadline, but there is no solid rumor on any trades.
  • Bynum also helped out with eight points and seven assists on the night.
  • Jose put up 17 points for Detroit and was a perfect 4-for-4 from the three point line. Though he only had two assist he’s the kind of player that knows when he needs to score and when he needs to pass.  I’m sold.
  • Ben Gordon…still terrible. He played just ten minutes for the Bobcats. I’m sure they will still try to deal him by the Thursday 3pm deadline.
  • Brandon Knight led the Pistons with 21 points on 7-of-11 shooting with five assist and a steal in 29 minutes. Bad news is Knight left the game and didn’t return after he had a collision with Kemba Walker and hyper-extended his knee. His status for the game against the Pacers is undetermined as of right now.

  • Greg Monroe scored 19 points with seven assists and seven boards in a very solid night. I wouldn’t doubt if one of these days he puts up a triple-double. Too bad this had to happen to him last night. See Below
  • How will Greg Monroe ever recover from this dunk by Michel Kidd-Gilchrist, it was beyond ridiculous.

  • Speaking of impressing, how about Slava? We may not know how to spell his name, but he’s sure making and impression while he’s out there. It seems like we get a nice dunk highlight every time he gets some minutes.  Slava scored six points in 13 minutes with four boards.
  • Is Maggette still a Piston?
  • Surprising stat of the night: Charlie Villanueva led the Pistons in rebounds with nine.
  • Charlie V added 12 points in his 26 minutes on the floor.
  • Is it just me or has Jason Maxiell been somewhat invisible of late?
  • Next up Indiana on Friday night.
  • Stay tuned for any trade deadline news.

    Charlotte has a lot of fans at the game, and that’s against us. I feel like Auburn Hills barely draws that many fans even when Detroit is playing a good team.

  2. Bellllissimo says:

    Slava has become my favorite player all of a sudden. I can’t wait for drummond to get back because he is obviously better and Slava is kinda like Darko but I would love to see Slava keep the backup center role when Andre moves into the starting lineup

  3. Cerecyte says:

    If Slava can put together a couple more games like the one he had last night. (He looks to be getting more and more comfortable) I say move him to the starting line up until Andres ready to go. (maybe even have Andre on the bench for the first couple games hes back)

    Jason hasn’t been as productive lately and isn’t a long term starter. Monroe needs to get use to defending 4’s and abusing 4’s on the offensive end.

    Even if Slava is in slightly over his head, (kind of a foul machine right now) The experience will be good for him and the team long term.

    guys slava is really bad, he cant box out because he doesnt know any basketballl, charlie v is better than him defensively.

    he has hops, so he can dunk and he is athletic so he can block shots. but he cant even block shots without fouling (something drummond can do). On any other team, he wouldn’t see a minute of play.

    He’s a project, but he’s at a level that in the usa would put him at a junior high school level of play.

    he will need to work hard every day to be able to play at a college level in 1 year, and a pro level in 2 or 3.

    just too raw. Drummond is completely developed compared to slava.
