The 22-36 #Pistons are back home to play the second game of a back to back Friday night against the 28-30 Bucks. Detroit is trying to get every win they can, while Milwaukee is doing the same in order to slide into the playoffs. The Bucks dropped two games behind the eighth-place Knicks after they lost at home Wednesday night.

  • The good: Knight had a career-high 26 points and seven assists in the Feb. 3 win over the Bucks.
  • The bad: The Pistons are 6-24 on the road.
  • Who to watch: Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings who can light it up in a blink of and eye. Keep your eye out for Monroe and Knight who will both look to continue their success after Thursday’s game in Charlotte.
  • The unknown: Will Charlie V get some time on the floor to give it to his former team? (I couldn’t even keep a straight face typing that one)

The Bucks took down the Pistons Monday night in commanding fashion by racing out of the gate. The Bucks, who led by as much as 23, had to deal with just one treat late in the second quarter as Stuckey scored seven points and lead the Piston son a 17-5 run to end the half cut the Pistons deficit to six at the half. Unfortunately the second half wasn’t one to talk about as the Bucks went on a 12-2 run to start the third. Final Score 103-82

Key Points:

  • Defense was surely lacking, the Pistons allowed the Bucks to shoot 69% in the first quarter and rocketing off to a quick lead.
  • Bucks up 30-16 after one.
  • The Pistons were down by 18 before I could blink but they clawed their way back late in the second quarter, but the Bucks were too much and the Pistons were much too less.

  • Rodney Stuckey led the Pistons with 19 points, 6 assists and three boards.
  • The Bucks killed the Pistons from downtown. They shot 10-for-17 from downtown, while the Pistons make just one three the night.
  • The Pistons gave up after about the 5 minute mark of the game when Vernon Macklin and Wilkins entered the game. What good came out of it? An alley oop for Macklin from Russell.
  • Do you realize that Charlie Villanueva is now on the Piston inactive list?
  • Another great game from Pistons Greg Monroe, who put up 16 points on 8-for-12 shooting with 10 boards and 2 assists. Let’s be honest this mess of a season would be much worse without Greg and that’s saying a lot.
  • Detroit shot 38% on the night, but at one point they were at just 17%.
  • UGLY
  • Five Pistons in double figures.

  • Brandon Jennings torched Brandon Knight wo scored zero points and was a -20 for the game. If you saw his face after this one was over it would explain everything. He’ll bounce back, but this one was not good.
  • It’s hard to pull something positive out of this one especially when they have two more games to play on the road in the next two days. Heck if you can think of something positive to say that’s not about Greg Monroe, leave it in the comments.
  • Lead changes in this one …ZERO.
  • Austin Daye 4-for-14 for 10 points.
  • How do you let Mike Dunleavy kill you?
  • Prince with 14 and 8 boards with an assist and a blocked shots.
  • The Bucks capitalized on the Pistons 16 turnovers.
  • I know, I know this team is almost as hard to watch as Mateeeeen Cleaves “expert” analysis in the Call Sam Studios.
  • Tuesday night in NYC.

The 4-17 Pistons continue their road trip in Milwaukee for the first game of a back-to-back-to-back to take on the 8-11 Bucks.
The Bucks are playing without Bogut, who is expected to miss 8-12 weeks for a fractured left ankle he suffered Wednesday.

  • The good: Will the team that played against the Heat and the Blazers please stand up.
  • The bad: Sunday in Philadelphia. No Gordon, Bynum and CV31 again, who didn’t even make the road trip with the team. As for the rumors that Charlie V needs surgery…official word from the Pistons right now is that he does not. The Pistons are averaging a league low 81.4 points per game.
  • Who to watch: Brandon Jennings, Stephen Jackson, who is due a big game and soon to be (hopefully) All-Star Greg Monroe.
  • The unknown: Who is going to show up in Bazarro Pistons world.

The 5-10 Pistons are hosting the 5-9 Milwaukee Bucks Friday night at the Palace. The Bucks, will look for a win to avoid their first five game losing streak since the 2008-2009 season.

The Bucks are one of the best defensive teams in the league limiting opponents to a league low 90.5 points per game and a 42% shooting percentage.

The stats prove Detroit’s affinity to collapse in the third quarter. Detroit is shooting a league worst 38.9 percent in the quarter.

Pistons take on the Bucks again, this time in Milwaukee but this one isn’t televised. After last nights Piston win against The Wizards in which Sheed led all scores with 12 on the way to a 73-62 win. Since we can’t watch it I am anticipating a little something like this might take place.
