The Pistons vs. The Raptors

The 25-39 #Pistons are in Toronto to take on the 35-27 Raptors Wednesday night. The Raptors who are closing in on a division title will take a Pistons team that is on their second game of a back-to-back and have trouble on the road.

The good: It was nice to see the Pistons pull it together after a slow start against the Kings and get a win.
The bad: The Raptors have won 14 of their last 18 on their home court and the last time these two teams met they crushed the Pistons 112-91.
The unknown: Who’s going to stand out, the surprising good center for the Raptors Jonas Valanciunas or Andre Drummond?

Pistons: Chauncey Billups (left knee surgery) is out. Peyton Siva is day-to-day.
Kings:Patrick Peterson out.

Tip off is at 7:00 pm and will be broadcast on Fox Sports Detroit . If you can’t catch the game on TV, catch it on the radio over at 97.1 The Ticket.

    I am the biggest piston fan, but I also like winner. I like to win and can’t wait til they start winning again. I create a whole new style of fan wear, which was inspired by the 2004 pistons, I most likely have to turn my focus to get the brand to other NBA franchise. I want a team to make it into the playoffs as a new “TUTFEW out” wear during games, as a marketing strategy to introduce the brand into all sports market. If the Piston make it, then I would seek to make them first, but the way the season is going, that don’t look to happen. The DdreamsInc TUTFEW fan wear concepts “Wat Team R U Wit” “Don’t say it-Display it”.

    about this time last year, Detroit went on a 10 game losing streak 23-47, they finished up playing 50% basketball as other teams either gave up on the season or rested their starters for the playoffs to end up with a 29-53 record.

    We’ll probably end up with the same record this year. Maybe 30 wins. Right now we are tied with a lotto 8th place.

    The difference between this and last year’s team is you could see the effort last year’s team had. It was miserable but not depressing.

    This year’s team, they just don’t care. A bunch of highly paid tall athletic guys with tattoos that looked like they walked in off the street to play a few minutes of basketball before going out to the club.

    Drummond is learning a lot of things from this team. None of them good. One of them is that all that matters if your individual stats. Why bother boxing out? It doesn’t show up on a stat sheet like a rebound does.
