The good: Detroit has won three consecutive games against the Bucks , who are currently sitting in the cellar. It’s a great time for the Pistons to get a dominating victory to try to turn this thing around for the second half of the season.
Rodney Stuckey looks completely healed from his shoulder surgery and making himself a very coveted player this trade season. Stuckey scored a season-high 29 points off the bench in the Pistons loss to the Clippers Monday afternoon.
The bad: Detroit always seems to know how to lose the games they should win.
I’m sure that the Wizards aren’t the only team that would like to have Greg Monroe.
The unknown: Who’s going win the war of the reversed Brandon’s?  Who has more to prove, Jennings or Knight?
Injuries: Pistons: None
Bucks: Carlos Delfino – Out
Zaza Pachulia – Out

The 8-10 #Pistons are in Milwaukee for the second game of a back to back to take on the 3-14 Bucks. Detroit will try to make it three straight with a win against the Bucks after their convincing win against the NBA Champ Miami Heat on Tuesday night.

  • The good: The Pistons are coming of their biggest win in quite some time will take on a struggling Bucks team that they blew out at the Palace November 25th.
  • The bad: The Bucks had lost 11 in a row before beating the Celtics Saturday night. Former Piston Brandon Knight, who hasn’t been completely healthy all season, is averaging nine points and four assists per game this season.
  • The unknown: Chauncey Billups is still listed as day-to-day and Will Bynum is doubtful. Can the Pistons keep their momentum and do what they should do against the Bucks?

The 5-8 #Pistons are back home to play a the second game of a back-to-back against the 2-10 Milwaukee Bucks Monday night. Detroit could be starting a roll after their 109-97 win in Brooklyn Sunday afternoon. The Bucks are prime for the taking being that they are the heels of their worst losing streak in 16 years.

  • The good: Mr. Rodney Stuckey has turned into the best player on the Pistons team putting them on his back and keeping them in game. Andre Drummond’s new jump hook is pretty awesome too, keep and eye out for it.  The Pistons won 3-of-4 against the Bucks last season and seven of their last 12.
  • The bad: The Pistons new acquisitions Josh Smith and Brandon Jennings have been a disappointment this season. The organization was hoping the two would put this team over the top, but they’ve each regressed this season. Jennings, who will play his former team for the first time Monday night, averaged 17.0 points and 5.7 assists in four seasons with the Bucks.
  • The unknown:  It’s still not known if Chauncey Billups or Will Bynum will be back, they are each still listed as day-to-day.

The 19-32 Detroit #Pistons are in Milwaukee for the second game of a back-to-back against the 25-23 Bucks.

  • The good: The way the Pistons played against the Spurs you realize they can beat any team on a given night.
  • The bad: You’re well aware of the Pistons record on the road and a back-to-back doesn’t help the matter much.
  • The unknown: The Battle of the Brandon’s didn’t go too well for Knight last time around against the Bucks. Can Knight duplicate the kind of game he put up against the Spurs?

The 17-27 #Pistons are hosting the 23-17 Milwaukee Bucks Tuesday night at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

  • The good: Brandon Jennings hasn’t had much success against the Pistons. Detroit has won three of the last four against the Bucks.
  • The bad: You can decide if this is good or bad, but I’m putting it in the bad category. Rodney Stuckey will be back with Detroit in his “normal” roll. L Frank did not comment on his deactivation, but Stuckey said he had no issue with the coach but he didn’t see eye to eye with him the other day and he understands him no playing. How many more coaches is Rodney going to have beef with? Remember his “flu-like symptoms” earlier in the season? I personally think he’s got issues. You got to play like an all-star to act like one.
  • The unknown: Which Brandon will have a better night?

The Pistons hung on to beat the Milwaukee Bucks 94-96 Sunday night at the Palace of Auburn Hills. Despite losing a sizable 15 point lead the Pistons won the game on the last two possessions thanks to four point from Tayshaun Prince.

Key Points:

  • The Pistons led the whole game except the final two minutes.
  • It’s nice to see that the team is learning to finish games.
  • Brandon Knight has taken some heat as of late. He’s having trouble with his shot, he’s getting beat by on defense, and he’s turning the ball over more than the Pistons would like. He did however play solid defense on Ellis on the last shot attempt of the game by the Bucks to help win it. Brandon finished with 11 points on 4-or-12 shooting with three assists, three boards and four turnovers in 34:52 minutes.
  • Singler has also regressed a bit with his shot, but made up for it with some nice defense. Kyle scored eight points on 2-of-11 shooting with seven boards, three steals and a blocked shot in 31:27 on the floor.
  • Double-doubles from Jason Maxiell and Greg Monroe.
  • Jason with 10 points, 10 boards and three assists in 26:20 on the floor including a signature putback jam.

  • The Pistons are winners of 4 of their last five games.
  • Andre Drummond scored eight points with seven boards, a steal and two blocked shots and a perfect 4-for-4 from the free throw line. Did you ever think Andre Drummond could run the floor like he does?

  • Tayshaun Prince led the team with 20 points, two assists, and two boards int 34:40 on floor. Prince has been solid all season long and there really is no better person on this team to have the ball when the game is on the line.

  • Villanueva with 11 and Daye with 5 points.
  • Need4Sweede still hasn’t touch the floor, but Kim English did.
  • When the Bucks took the lead with 1:06 left in the game all I could think was “great here we go again.” Thankfully they proved me wrong.
  • Rodney Stuckey still sidelined with a bun ankle.
  • Greg Monroe with 14 points, 10 boards, two assists in 28:32 on the floor.
  • Pistons biggest lead 15 the Bucks 2.

  • Love this stat – 60 point in the paint for Detroit.
  • Kings, Hawks, Bobcats ad Bucks again. The Pistons have a shot at all of those games.

The 10-22 #Pistons are hosting the 16-12 Milwaukee Bucks Sunday night at the Palace of Auburn Hills

  • The good: The Pistons should have a little spark on their side after beating the World Champion Heat Friday night.

  • The unknown: Can the Zoo Crew part Deux do it again, or will the starters get back into a groove?

The 22-36 #Pistons are back home to play the second game of a back to back Friday night against the 28-30 Bucks.

  • The bad: The Pistons are 6-24 on the road.

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.
