“Tyreke Evans, Stephen Curry and Brandon Jennings – the three Rookie of the Year front-runners, the award Evans won on Thursday – were joined on the first team by Taj Gibson and Darren Collison. Jerebko was named to the second team along with two lottery picks, James Harden and Jonny Flynn, and two other second-rounders, DeJaun Blair and Marcus Thornton.

Jerebko finished the season with averages of 9.3 points and 6.0 rebounds in nearly 28 minutes a game, shooting .481. He started 73 games, the most by a Pistons rookie since Kelly Tripucka started all 82 in 1981-82. Jerebko finished third among rookies in rebounding, behind Chicago’s Gibson and San Antonio’s Blair, fifth in minutes, eighth in steals and 10th in scoring.”

The Pistons vs. The Celtics width=

The 21-38 Detroit Pistons will be hosting The 36-21 Boston Celtics tonight at the Palace.  Set another Sheed return aside, the Pistons are hosting something bigger than a ball game tonight. The Pistons Care Telethon is in progress and set to feed a lot of hungry people in Michigan. If you can help, even if it’s only a dollar, please do.

On a personal note, I’ll will be a guest of Celtics Late Night, after the game to give them my take on the Detroit side of things, as well as a lot of good natured (not really) ribbing about all things I hate that are green.

The Show starts at 11:00, and as soon as I get back from the game I will be joining the show Live.  If you are so inclined, please call in so I can chat with my fellow Pistons fans.  Let’s show the Celtics fans we mean business.


And to make things…better (or maybe worse) I spotted Rajon Rondo and Tony Allen last night when I was having dinner and  gave them both the evil Pistons StinkEYE. Does that GuaranSWEDE a Pistons win? Not sure it does, but it sure made me feel good.

Here is a recap of the month for both Jerebko:
Feb. 6 vs New Jersey Registered 20 points, seven rebounds and shot 9-9 field goals in a 99-92 win over the Nets.

  • Feb. 10 vs Sacramento: Scored 11 points and grabbed seven rebounds in a 88-95 loss to the Kings. “

It’s nice to see Jonas get some recognition outside Detroit. We know what he can do, but he’s starting to turn heads around the league.

How great is Jason Maxiell for repping Jonas Jerebko with the viking helmet at the Rookie – Sophomore game?

SwedetasticI just wanted to remind everyone that Jonas Jerebko will be playing in the Rookie – Sophomore game Tonight (Friday) in Dallas.   I’m expecting a ton of Swedetastic highlights from Jonas.  I have a feeling he won’t disappoint.

Tip is at 9:00 PM EST on TNT, but if you want some inside info, @Ludiker a member of Team Need4Sheed is at the game tonight and promised us the scoop on what Jonas is doing in Dallas.  Make sure you are following @Ludiker and expect some live Tweeting during the game.

Pistons fans can thank The New Jersey Nets for putting some smiles on our faces. After a miserable night in Indiana on Friday, the Pistons bounced back with an impressive 92-99 win Saturday night.

Key Points:

  • A whopping 52% from the floor for the Pistons.
  • Rodney Stuckey with a double-double. A tale of two days for Stuckey who went from zero assists Friday night to 11 on Saturday. He may have went 4-for-13 on the night for 10 points, but when you help you’re teammates get buckets that is good enough.
  • Really, how do you let Kris Humphries put up 21 on you? The Pistons always have the habit of letting role players look like all-starts against them.
  • One of the best crowds at the Palace all season long.
  • Charlie Villanueva 4-for-4 from downtown for 12 points, with 2 boards and 2 blocked shots in 16 minutes.
  • SWEDETASTIC night for Jonas who was a perfect 9-for-9 on the night with 7 boards.  Jonas led the Pistons with 20 points  in just 24 minutes.  Jonas didn’t even play a minute of the fourth quarter thanks to the solid play of Jason Maxiell.  Personally I thought Jonas should have been in the game in the closing minute over Prince with the game he was having.

  • Ben Wallace with 4 block on the night and it should have been 5 if you count the block on Lopez that was called a foul.  It looked clean to me and Ben was so sure it was good he got a technical foul for it.  Huge night for Ben who really drove this team with 10 boards, 9 points and a steal.
  • 29 Detroit Pistons assists on the night…huge.
  • DNP for Austin Daye.
  • The collision between Harris and Hayes looked horrible in person.  I hope both are ok, it felt like it took them forever to move.
  • “Maxiell had it going at the end,” Pistons head coach John Kuester said. “We sort of rode him and that’s why we didn’t put Jonas back into the game. He had two key rebounds and a dunk.” Via
  • Let me tell you that this Maxiell Dunk shook the ground and the crowd at the Palace.

  • Jason has really started to pick his game up the last month.  Maxiell finished with 13 points a blocked shot and 6 boards in 24 minutes.

  • New Jersey scored just two points in the final 2 minutes.
  • Jonas Jerebko just gained a whole lot more fans last night.
  • The Pistons biggest lead was 12, the Nets 2.
  • Rip scored 17 on 5-for-14 shooting with 5 assists. Rip tried to connect with Tay again on an all oop that almost had the crown on their feet.
    Just 4 points for Tay.
  • Ben Gordon 5 points on 1-for-5 shooting. From hot to not.
  • Another great performance from Will Bynum who returned a few games ago after his ankle injuries. Bynum scored 9 with 4 assists in 19 minutes.

  • Loved the guy I saw with a red t-shirt on that he took a permanent magic marker to that said “Devin Harris Loves (it was a heart) Snookie” !
  • Yes it was the Nets, but at least they played defense, were hitting their shots and put forth a lot of effort. Talent aside, win or lose it’s the effort that fans want to see. Thanks for making my drive home from the Palace bearable. Wait, do I thank the Pistons or the Nets?

Just got back from the Pistons 92-99 win against the Nets and I just had to put up the Swedetastic highlights.

Yes, we had a perfect Swede Saturday night – Jonas Jerebko 9-for-9 with 7 boards for 20 points.

And I witnessed Ben Wallace’s 2002nd, 2003rd, 2004th and his 2005th blocks.
