The tired, undermanned Pistons were no match for World Champion Lakers Sunday evening at the Palace of Auburn Hills. Kobe Bryant led all scores with 28 points in the Lakers 93-81 victory against Detroit.

Key Points:

  • Another game without Richard Hamilton, Tayshaun Prince and Ben Gordon.
  • The Pistons, thanks to some hot shooting from Chucky Atkins, got off to a quick 9-4 lead to start the game, but within minutes the Lakers took control and never really looked back.  The Pistons (sort of) threatened late in the fourth quarter cutting the Lakers lead to 8 with less than two minutes left, but Kobe made sure that the Pistons had no chance to win this one.
  • Quite honestly of all the games the Pistons have played with their core group sitting on the bench injured, this one really showed the Pistons weaknesses.  They looked like a JV team at times.
  • The Lakers lived at the line, scoring 40 of their points from the stripe.
  • Rodney Stuckey led the Pistons with 16 points in just 27 minutes on the floor with 1 assist, 3 boards and 2 steals. Early first quarter foul trouble sent Stuckey to the bench, but it didn’t seem like he Kuester was quick to put him back in the game.

  • At one point the lineup consisted of Ben Wallace, Jason Maxiell, Jonas Jerebko, Chucky Atkins, and Austin Daye. One had to wonder who the go to guy for buckets was…it just so happened to be Jason Maxiell for a few possessions.
  • Maxiell’s jumper is really coming along, some of those shots he’s making (that he never used to) look effortless. Jason finished with 8 points, 2 boards and a blocked shot.
  • Three Pistons in double digits, JJ, Daye and Stuckey.
  • Rebound war won 44-43.
  • Will Bynum just 6 points on 2-for-7 shooting with 4 assists and 7 turnovers…yes 7. That is not BYNUMITE. Will just hasn’t looked like himself since his ankle injuries.
  • Austin Daye with 10 points on 5-for-10 shooting with 4 boards, 3 assists in 20 minutes on the floor. This may have been the biggest highlight of the game for Detroit.

  • The Pistons still working the paint scoring 42 down low.
  • Andrew Bynum gets better with every game he plays.
  • Is it me or does Gasol seem to cry about every call or non call?
  • When Stuckey was sitting out with foul trouble, Kobe alone outscored the Pistons crew that was on the floor.
  • The Piston looked outmatched for about all but  about 8 of the 48 minutes.

  • The Pistons could have used a lot more than what Charlie Villanueva gave them Sunday evening. Charlie finished with 6 points, 8 boards and 2 assists in 28 minutes. This was his first game without the mask, I’m thinking he may want to go back to it. He was putting up his best numbers of the season while wearing Rip’s trademark.
  • Minutes for DaJuan Summers who scored 5 with a blocked shot and an assist in 23 minutes.
  • Solid night for Kwame Brown who finished with 7 points on 3 for 3 shooting  with 8 boards, an assist and a blocked shot in 21 minutes.  Nice to see Kwame with a good game against his former team.
  • Jonas with 11 of his 15 points in the third quarter…pure hustle from JJ.
  • Jonas Jerebko said it best – “Shit Happens”

  • Don’t forget, right in time for the Holiday Season the Need4Swede T-Shirt.
  • Hopefully the Pistons can get back to winning with a game against the Bobcats on Tuesday, because this one wasn’t fun to watch.
