The Pistons take on the 39-21 Denver Nuggets at home for the first time since Chauncey Billups was traded from Detroit.  Billups acknowledges it will be emotional to play at The Palace for the first time as an ex-Piston, but I can only imagine how he feels one the fans welcome him back.

“It will be fun to get back to that city that I love so dearly, the fans that I love so dearly,” Billups said. Via NBA.com

My guess is there will be a few tears shed in the building.

I’m also hoping for a CHAUNCEY B-B-B-BILLUPS from our good friend Mason.

We have Iverson fans as well as Billups fans and no matter which side of the fence you sit on, there is no denying what Billups meant to this team or it’s fans.

Sorting though one of my first videos I did on N4S, I found this one i titled Chauncey for MVP, I thought you might enjoy it today.

The Good/The Bad and More

  • No Carmelo Anthony for Denver – “The Denver Nuggets have suspended Carmelo Anthony for one game for an “in-game transgression” Sunday against Indiana. “There is a code of conduct that we take very seriously, especially from a leader and co-captain,” Rex Chapman, vice president of player personnel, said Monday. “Carmelo knows this and regrets what happened. He is a very competitive person and made a poor decision in the heat of the moment. We look forward to having him back on Thursday and will have no further comment at this time.” Via ESPN
  • Pistons fans feeling the loss not more than ever.

Tip off is at 7:30 at The Palace of Auburn Hill and if you’re headed out, make sure you get there early so you don’t miss a thing. The game will be locally broadcast on FSN PLUS and as always Tim Bryant from FSN was nice enough to send us the channel listings just in case you’re not sure what number your Fox Sports Plus is on. If you can’t watch the game listen live on WDFN 1130 AM or follow the game on NBA.com

I expect it all in the comments.

The Pistons probably aren’t looking forward to their second game in two nights against Chris Paul and the 33-22 New Orleans Hornets.  And as Pistons fans I don’t think I have to tell you why. OK I guess I will tell you a little something that’s eating on all of us right now.

  • First time the Pistons fell below .500 after the halfway mark
    of the season since 2000-01
  • 7 game skid
  • Rotation deviation.
  • Defensive disarray.
  • Locker room tension.
  • Lack of leadership.

You get the picture.

Is this what a Lions fan feels like?

The Pistons must win tonight to avoid the its longest losing streak in 14 years

Tip off is at 8:00 PM and will be locally broadcast on FSN Plus. If you’re not sure what channel FSN Plus is on your dial, FSN was kind enough to give us the channel list.
If you can’t catch the broadcast you can listen to it on WDFN 1130 AM or you can follow/listen from your computer at NBA.com.

Could this be the game they snap the streak?
