The Big story was not the Pistons seeking revenge in Toronto, it was the fact that this was the first game that Rip (barring injury or illness) was going to come off the bench for Detroit. Mr. Hamilton not only preformed, he set the season high of the bench for the NBA with 35 in the Pistons 115-93 victory in Toronto.

Key Points:

  • The Pistons jumped out to a big league and (this time) kept it.
  • The Pistons led by 32 with 3 minutes left, they played the full 48.
  • Story of the game, Toronto with 23 turnovers.
  • Pistons have set an NBA season high by scoring 41 points off of turnovers.  The previous mark was 35.
  • I hate using this cliche… but we saw Vintage T-Mack.
  • Pistons bench outscores Toronto’s 62-39. Having Rip and T-Mac coming off the bench makes for a great second team.
  • Rip stepped up big time to make a statement and right his wrong… Career high 6 three pointers, scoring 35, with 1 assist, 1 board and zero technicals in 28 minutes off the bench.

  • Jason Maxiell left the game early with a dislocated finger and didn’t return. It shouldn’t keep him off the court for the Chicago game though.
  • Congrats to Ben Wallace who played his 1000th NBA game and he looks like it’s his 100th. Wallace finished with 6 points, 3 assists, 2 steals 3 blocked shots and 6 boards in 23 minutes…the man is a ROCK.
  • Austin Daye dressed but did not play. I don’t know what I was watching…apparently I missed Daye’s 4 minute return. Though I’m glad I did, he was 0-4 and 0-2 two from downtown.  More shots than Ben Gordon takes most nights in just 4 minutes for Daye.
  • Great ball movement and good job by Detroit capitalizing off of Toronto’s mistakes.

Rip: “Tonight I just wanted to make a statement with all of the stuff talked about. I just wanted to come out and make a statement.”

  • Another great outing from Charlie Villanueva with 18 points, 4 boards, 2 assists in 25 minutes as a starter alongside Ben Gordon.
  • Gordon started slow and stayed slow in his second game as a starter. 1-for-7 from the floor for just 4 points in 20 minutes for Detroit. Rip made a point Wednesday and Ben didn’t.  Ben will turn around, he just needs time.
  • You can say what you will about me, but one 35 point game doesn’t excuse Rip’s behavior or his play this season. It was nice, but I’m reserving my right to still be upset with the situation and I still think Detroit needs to move him.  At this point the team really isn’t in the running for anything other than a draft pick…so get to rebuilding, Tay and Rip both deserve to be on a team that have a chance at something bigger.

  • Tracy McGrady with a season high in points (17) assists (7) and rebounds (7). Plenty of boos from the Toronto crowd…
  • T-Mac post game: (VIDEO)
  • “Keep booing me I love it, it really doesn’t bother me at all…It’s not like I was like Chris Bosh and selling out the city like the city was horrible or something or making crazy comments like the city was horrible”

  • Good to have Rodney back, he took the game under his wings from the start scoring the Pistons first 6 and going on to put up 21 with 2 assists.
  • The didn’t let this one go…post game quote from Kuester about what what said at the half.

Kuester: “It was mentioned, there is no question about it. We realized that we had to continue with the same type of focus that we had in the beginning and again.”

  • Greg Monroe has one more assist than Rodney Stuckey.  I’ll take his stat line of 7 points on 2-for-3 shooting with 3 assists, 3 boards and a steal in 25 minutes.
  • Great team ball led to 27 assists for Detroit.
  • A quiet Tayshaun Prince didn’t have to do much when T-Mack and Rip were on fire.

As always, wishing everyone a Happy and Safe Holiday Season, no matter what you celebrate (or don’t). And remember you can always you can follow Danny and I on twitter, if you’d like.

Here is a SHEEDtastic Holiday favorite of mine, Rasheed and Company singing Jingle Bells.

Santa DumarsAnd if you’re listening Santa, please get this team back on track.  We’ll settle for a trade, any trade…please Santa, all no coal or bricks .  Is a a big ban that can play defense too much to ask for?

Really, I promise, we’ve been really good.

The Pistons finally won one, courtesy of the Cleveland Cavaliers.  Thanks to my unfortunate and untimely internet outage last night (thanks Comcast I hate you) I didn’t get a change to get the recap of the game up or get to talk about Rodney Stuckey’s 24 points and a career high 11 assists.   So until get a chance to gush about the victory (since they don’t come often enough) I give you Rip Hamilton’s Circus Shot and the chunk out of the child Jason Maxiell ate.

Another look back into my “Sheed” archives brings you The Best Damn Sheed Show Period.  This will be the best 2 minutes you’ve spent in quite some time.

If this video mix doesn’t put a smile on your face then something is seriously wrong with you.

Rasheed Wallace made an appearance at the Pistons Open Practice on Saturday afternoon to the delight of many fans.   He also hung out at the Pistons practice facility Friday, while his old team hit the floor.

With the news of Sheed back in the D for whatever reason, it has to make you think.

Coach Sheed…?

Watching Sheed play in a Pistons uniform for close to 6 seasons Detroit fans know his affinity to want to teach “the young fellas”.  In fact, I’m pretty sure at least 70% of Piston die-hards have made the comment “Sheed would make a great coach” at one time or another.

Just think about it, how great would it be for Greg Monroe to learn from WallaceX2?

Sheed just brings that something special to a team, just think of the emotion he would add to the bench. And a little personal flair.

I’m sure players would respect the man when he speaks…wouldn’t you?

Listen to Coach Sheed

He has his Sheedisms and pregame rituals like just about any other player or coach in professional sports.

The deep concentration of the game plan before tip-off would benefit a team that needs focus.

He brings with him his basketball knowledge and his mutual respect and admiration for NBA referees.

Look, the man knows the game.  He knows this team.  He knows the city.  Why wouldn’t he want to sit on the sidelines for the Pistons and share his knowledge?

Aside from Sheed having his own Sheed Reality show (Sheedality), this would make for some great entertainment.   Come on… hire him as an assistant Joe, we still have a Need4Sheed…plus it means I can keep the site’s name without questions.

  • Stuckey says he was misquoted in the Dime piece.  They are “among” the best teams on paper.  He also says the sky is the limit.
  • Rip and Tay not surprised they are back. Really? We want the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
  • Patrick Hayes over at PistonsPowered has a slew of Video interviews from media day…go check them out.  He of course got a little Need4Swede, who talks about keeping his starting  job.
  • Will Rip hold his tongue with the new crack down on technical fouls?
  • Mr. Glass McGrady feeling healthy.
  • Kuester not worried about the backcourt rotation?  He should be, unless he knows something is going down.
  • Don’t forget open practice this Saturday.
  • Could Ike make the roster?

It was one of those days where I had time to search through my Sheeednormous video archive when I happened to stumble across a good one.

It’s a top ten what if’s that have sealed the fate of our Detroit Pistons.  What makes me think a little more since the last time I watched this video (about 2 seasons ago) is what has happened since this video was put together and the uncertainty around what twists and turns we are in for once the team has a new owner.

Well, I got exactly who I wanted to see in a Pistons uniform. With the 7th pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, The Detroit Pistons select Greg Monroe from Georgetown.

As for Terrico White…he’s already got a commercial, but do we need another G?

Hat tip to Need4Sheed reader Joshua for the video.

Ben Wallace FRO

The second part of the Ben Wallace video that takes us from Rick Carlisle, to Larry Brown to Flip and then Skiles.  The beginning of his run in Detroit with the Defense player of the year awards, the birth of Wallace X2 and the somewhat bitter departure.

Looking back like this, along with his play this season, really shows us what place this man has in the city of Detroit.

Besides his gritty no holds barred play, I have come to love the fact that the Pistons Jonas Jerebko doesn’t back down…ever.  Remember when he was suspended for the first game of the year for that little altercation?  It was a sign to come that this Bad Boy will put up a fight if he has to.

When this came across my screen all I could do was smile.  Amare (who tends to get frustrated when he doesn’t get his way) decides to throw the ball Jerebkos’ way and “play it” like he was trying to throw the ball off Jonas to keep control of the ball.  The refs weren’t having it, and neither was Jonas.

During the slow-mo clip look at  JJ’s face and what he says to Amare.  I can’t read his lips, but I can tell that if he had to he would have stepped in the ring with Stoudemire.
