The 11-18 Pistons are in Toronto to take on the 14-17 Raptors for the second game of a home and home. The Pistons would like to erase the memory of the miserable game they played on Thursday night in which the Raptors held them to tie their lowest point total as a franchise.
This early afternoon game should bring hope for the Holiday season. All signs point to Detroit being at full strength for just the second time since the opening game of the season.
Detroit’s injured, including Tayshaun Prince, are game day decisions.
FYI.. If and when Tayshaun plays, he will start and our Swede will take the roll of backup.
Even Charlie V was excited about getting his teammates back:
Santa was good too me, i told him I wanted Tayshaun, RIP and BG back in a Piston uniform, my was has been granted. Via @CV31
Tip is at 1:00 pm EST and will be televised on Fox Sports Detroit. For the radio broadcast tune in to 950 AM , or follow the action over at NBA.com.
It’s time for a W Pistons fans.
Bounce back quickly from last night’s victory is what the Pistons plan to do tonight in Toronto as the e 2-2 Pistons are set to take on the 1-2 Raptors at the Air Canada center. The Pistons will again be without Tayshaun Prince and Rip Hamilton for tonight’s game against the Raps.
Who to look out for?
- Andrea Bargnani who’s putting up career numbers.
- Chris Bosh who’s always a weapon.
- Hedo Turkoglu who can shoot the lights out on a given night.
Me…. I’m hoping for a some playing time for our old friend Amir Johnson, especially after I found out he shouted me out on RaptorsTV.
Tip off is at 7:00 PM and will be locally broadcast on FSN. You can also listen to the game on 97.1 The Ticket or follow the game on NBA.com.
After last night’s battle, I’m hoping for an easier time from our shorthanded and injured (Will) squad.
