Forget the fact that the battered and bruised Pistons really did need to get back on track, Friday nights’ game 96-105 win against the Bucks was just plain fun to watch.

Key Points:

  • Charlie Villanueva took the court, mask and all, but still looked a uncomfortable on the court.  CV31 finished with 9 points a steal and 2 boards.
  • Great defensive effort for the Pistons all night long.  Ben Wallace and Jason Maxiell really allowing Andrew Bogut to do nothing was great.  The guards holding Brandon Jennings in check, priceless.
  • Sloppy finish to the game is something you don’t like to see.  The Pistons let the Bucks get a little too close in the closing minutes.
  • The Pistons are lucky to have won this game, when you turn the ball over 20 times it usually spells disaster.
  • I’m going to have to make a Need4Swede highlight reel.  Jonas Jerebko has been unreal since he’s been inserted in the starting lineup.  He will do just about anything that he can on court for his team, including a pretty sweet behind the back pass to Ben Wallace for the jam.  JJ finished with 16 points, 7 boards, 3 assists and a blocked shot in 27 minutes on the floor.

  • Did I mention he’s got his very own rabid fans too? He is also getting quite a hefty round of applause in the intro’s before the game.
  • Jason Maxiell a surprising 5 turnovers, but his defensive play almost made up for them.  He scored 6, with four boards and really did a number on Bogut who didn’t score till after the half.
  • Six Pistons in double figures.
  • Rodney Stuckey led Detroit with 19 points on 7-for-11 shooting with 9 assists, 6 boards and 4 turnovers.  Do you realize that since he’s moved to the two position he’s had a total of 21 assists and he’s looked more comfortable on court.  He’s still running the show at times, but he’s getting better looks now.
  • Kwame Brown doing some things I never thought he could.  Kwame with 4 points on 2-for-3 shooting, with 4 boards and 2 assists in 14 minutes.  Compliments aside, the two free throws he shot (and missed) had to be the ugliest I have seen in a while.
  • 46 boards to 30 for the Bucks.
  • Great way to end the half.  via NBA.com
  • Get the Flash Player to see this content.
  • You may not have caught the little drama unless you were at the game, but when Rodney Stuckey got his tech in the fourth quarter it looked like things were going to get out of hand.  Rodney tried to take the ball away from Jennings after the ball was dead, and they went at it a bit.  Then coach Kue and Rodney had a few choice words to each other.  I wasn’t that close so I couldn’t hear, but I did see the look on Kuester’s face and he wasn’t happy with Rodney.  They spoke, and Rodney finished the game out.
  • Ben Gordon still looks a bit off, but he did look good Friday night with 16 points on 6-for-10 shooting in just 22 minutes off the bench.
  • I now have a firm belief that in Mr. Wallaces’ case it’s not about the Benjamins baby…Ben Wallace Highlights
  • Get the Flash Player to see this content.

  • When Ben started dunking up a storm in the fourth, the Palace felt like 2004.  Another double-double for Ben Wallace with 11 points, 10 boards and 3 blocked shots….my word it’s just amazing.
  • A telling stat, 46 points in the paint for Detroit.
  • Rookie sensation Brandon Jennings was limited to 15 points, eight in the fourth on 6-for-20 shooting.
  • Chucky Atkins moves the ball so well when he’s out there.  He may not fill up the score sheet, but he gets the ball where it needs to be.   Atkins finished with 10 points and an assists.
  • Game Recap via NBA.com
  • Get the Flash Player to see this content.
  • I’m wondering if Will Bynum is still hurting, Will hasn’t looked himself for the last few games.   He finished with 12 points on 2-for-8 shooting with 4 turnovers.
  • The Pistons biggest lead was 17.
  • Other than the last couple minutes of this game…the Pistons looked right on track.
  • Sunday against the Wizards at home should be interesting.  Hoping they can make it two in a row.
  • Do you want Pistons tickets or what?
