It’s been quite a long time, in fact since February 24 of 2006 since the #Pistons beat the Bulls in Chicago. The 92-72 victory put the Pistons at 500 ball since early in November when they were 2-2.

Key Points:

  • Brandon Jennings led the way with a season high 33 points, five assists, and two steals in 41:55 on the floor. Jennings was hot from downtown knocking down 5-of-8, the last a glasser reminiscent of Sheed. Jennings outscored the entire starting lineup 33-32.
  • The Pistons took advantage of a broken down Bulls team that didn’t have Deng, Butler, Mike James and as we know Derrick Rose.
  • Just three Pistons in double figures.
  • Detroit led by as much 19, but it was a tie game at the half.  The Pistons pulled away in the third quarter allowing only nine for Chicago while scoring 24.
  • Rodney Stuckey left the game with a knee injury in the second quarter after a collision with Mike Dunleavy and didn’t return.  No word yet on his status.
  • Does Josh Harrellson remind any of you (who can remember) Bill Laimbeer?  The hop he takes when shooting a three looks just like Laimbeer.  All he needs to do now is develop a nice right hook.  Harrellson finished with 10 points, five boards, two assists and three blocked shots in just 12:56 on the floor.  Josh has played himself into this rotation.

cheeksMaurice Cheeks:  On Josh Harrellson “Josh was good. Josh understands how to play the game. Not only to make a shot, he had 3 blocks tonight. If he doesn’t have a shot, he knows how to take the ball to someone else and he is a pretty good rebounder. He understands how to play the game. His 3’s and Brandon’s 3’s were big.”

  • The Pistons big three didn’t score in bundles combining for just 22, but their work on the defensive end won this game.
  • I don’t care if the Bulls were injury plagued, anytime the Pistons beat Chicago is a good day in Detroit.
  • Four game winning streak.
  • Singler keeps hitting his shots, which is good considering we don’t know the status of Rodney Stuckey.  Kyle was 4-of05 for 12 points in 22 minutes.
  • Turnovers are still an issue, Pistons with 18 on the night.
  • Grabbing boards were Smith with 10, Monroe with 12 and Drummond with 14.

  • If the Pistons can beat the Heat at home Sunday for the second time in a week, they have truly turned the corner.


The Pistons take on the 33-38 Bulls tonight in Chicago. The Bulls have won seven of eight at home to jump into playoff position in the East.

Iverson and Wallace are out for tonight’s game, and Richard Hamilton is doubtful. All three spent time Monday working with Pistons strength and conditioning coach Arnie Kander,

While it looks like Hamilton and Wallace will be ready to return soon, Allen Iverson is a big question mark.

“Whenever I am ready and I can help the way I know I can help, and I don’t have to deal with this problem and know that it’s not going to bother me for the rest of my life, then I’ll be ready to go,” Iverson said. Via MLive

Pistons vs. Bulls

The Pistons in Chicago to take on the 22-29 Bulls. Rodney Stuckey, who’s been held under 10 points the last 4 games,  isn’t putting up same kinds of performances he did the last time these two teams met.  Needless to say another 40 point game would be just the medicine the Stuckey would love to swallow.

Yes the Piston really are 27-22 losing 11 of their past 17 overall and are barley holding on in the in the Easten Conference standings a half of a game in front of Miami in the fifth spot and just and 13 games back of Cleveland. Something that Pistons fans aren’t quite used to.

The Bulls…well they are currently outside the playoff picture, and trail the division leading Cavs by 18 games.
