Knicks Take Down The Pistons

Posted · 3 Comments
Calderon Pistons vs-the-Kinicks

The #Pistons finally had their new point guard in uniform Monday night in New York, but the Knicks spoiled his first game as a Pistons dominating them for another time this season with a 99-85 win.

Key Points:

  • The Knicks torched the Pistons with the three ball making 10 of their first 18 triples before halftime and finishing the game 14-of-34.
  • This game seemed over before it even started and when Detroit was down 26 in the second quarter the only real thing to do was watch and see how Calderon was doing with his new team.
  • Jose started the game at the point and led the Pistons with 15 points and zero turnovers in his 26 minutes on the floor. Though he didn’t rack up the assists, dishing just three, that part of his game will come as soon as it take him to get comfortable with his teammates.
  • Andre played just eight minutes before leaving the game with a back injury. No word on the seriousness of the injury or his status for the game against the Nets on Wednesday night. Too bad he didn’t play more, his lone two points came on this dunk from a Monroe feed in the face of Tyson Chandler who stepped aside for the young fella.

  • Carmelo Anthony continues to play well and destroy the Pistons at the same time, he led all scorers with 27 points.

  • Singler, who did his best to slow down Anthony, finished with five points.
  • Brandon Knight started at the two guard alongside Jose. Brandon shot 2-of-10 for five points in 28 minutes on the floor.
  • It was Rodney Stuckey who had a better night with 14 points, four assists and seven boards and three steals in 30 minutes.
  • What’s the deal with Greg Monroe and his turnovers this season?
  • Greg put up another double-double scoring 14 with 10 boards, two assists, a steal and two blocks shots. He had five of the Pistons 12 turnovers on the night.
  • Jerebko has cracked the rotation and was in early for Detroit. He finished with eight points in 16 minutes on the floor.

  • Bynum with 13 points and 3 turnover in 21 minutes.
  • The Pistons just don’t know what to do with the Knicks who have beaten them handily in every game this season.
  • Sheed may be back by after the All Star break for the Knicks.
  • Detroit, who has lost six of their last eight games are now seven games back of the last playoff spot in the East.
  • To Brooklyn on Wednesday.

    It will take a few games for Calderon to get used to his new team and vise versa especially Knight.

    Next year we need get a free agent veteran center so that big Dre and Moose can start together.
    We also need a real starter at SF. Let face it as much as we like their hustle, Singler and Maxiell should only get back up minutes.

    Tough decisions for Joe this off season since I think his job depends on whether he makes good or bad ones.

    Nat, you mean “To the PALACE on Wednesday!” I about freaked out when I read that cause I want to see the Pistons get their 1st win at Barclays Center, since I was there for that heartbreaking double OT loss. That game isn’t till 4/17.
