Why the Pacers Loss is Like My iPhone

Brandon Jennings Pistons-vs-Pacers

The Pistons lost to the still undefeated Indiana Pacers Tuesday night 99-91 at the Palace of Auburn Hills. Thought at times it looked like Indiana was clearly the better team than the better team, especially with them being without Danny Granger, things may not be that clear cut.

Now the title of of this post may not make sense, but let me explain.

If you have been a reader of this blog for some time, (can’t believe I’ve been doing it since 2005) you may know that I’m not just a huge Pistons fan, I’m kind of a geek. So this is where the analogy of the title comes in.

I go to my share of Pistons games, have been for years. I’ve been through the good and the very bad and though this was a loss,  I’m encouraged by it. As I sat at the game I watched this Pistons team go up against an Indiana Pacers team that went deep in the playoffs all I could do was think.

  • It was ugly
  • Detroit couldn’t seem to make a shot.
  • They had the new fella’s trying to help.
  • The youngsters trying to dominate.
  • The guys from far away trying to make their mark.
  • Mistakes were made.
  • They made a hell of a run.
  • Fans were on edge.

But….

Like my iPhone, it’s not there yet, but it’s way better than it used to be, but it’s not 100%. It doesn’t have all the other features as the other guys, but  it’s a heck of a lot better than last year’s model.  Mistakes were made, but a new update may just tweak it to where it needs to be.  Will it dominate?

If history repeats itself, yes.

Do we like the new OS on the court?

We should.

Will it get better…YES!

Can we wait for the jailbreak so it gets better…YES!

I’m not going to the Android, nor will I stop rooting for this team. I’m happy with what I have and I’m sticking with it until they get it perfect, just like they did before. I’m with this team…and I’ll download and deal with the updates as they come.

I’m a Pistons fan.

    Well, we can’t beat a good defensive team if we can’t make jump shots. But I only see this team improving in this area soon.

    great post… despite that loss it was a great game in my opinion. the part i loved / valued was the wills and fight i saw in our team/players.. that was hard-nose basketball being played… i have to say (and maybe this is my die-hard love for the Pistons, but this is also due to me understanding the game of basketball): come playoff time — the Pistons, Pacers are the only real challenge to the Heat. Chicago will be there but i dont think they have the meaningful pieces to compete. both the Pacers and Pistons have a solid front-line and strong guards (guards that have unique/different abilities)…if our shooting appears, protecting the ball (limit turnovers) — and our collectively defense is on point: we will be a problem. we have the pieces and have great potential… our size is amazing. Pacers are to me the favorites due to their chemistry and they know what style of basketball they want to play.. when we find that comfort level — the Pistons will shock fans and non-fans.. im encouraged so far and Joe D gathered some great pieces ….

    i agree with being with pistons but i think the iphone fits more with knicks. They overcharge and they are more flash than substance with very little beneath the surface
