It didn’t matter that the #Pistons were without their starting shooting guard Rodney Stuckey Wednesday night. They finally got their elusive first win of the season with the help of his replacement Kyle Singler and a monster game from Greg Monroe.  The Pistons had everything going for them in their he 94-76 victory over the Sixers leading by as much as 23 points, and finally playing a solid 48 minutes of basketball.

Key Points:

  • Greg Monroe with a MVP performance putting up yet another double-double (5) with 19 points, 18 boards and six assists. He was a force, attacking the basket and putting pressure on the Sixers.

  • The last Piston to have at least 19 points, 18 boards and 6 assists in a single game was Grant Hill with 35 points, 18 rebounds and 6 assists at Dallas on 4/1/97.
  • Yes you saw it, reg Monroe and Andre Drummond on court together for the first time. And you know what? The future looks very bright.
  • Kyle Singler AKA “Bucket Man” who started in Rodney Stuckey’s place was phenomenal. It didn’t start off great when early in the game he ran smack into the 300 pounds that is Kwame Brown. He laid in a heap on the floor dazed, but after a time out he went right back into the game and did his best job to keep Stuckey’s starting spot. Singler finished with 16 points on 7-of-14 shooting with 4 boards, and an assist.
  • Did I mention Kyle was everywhere, even diving into the expensive seats for a rebound.
  • Is it wrong to thank Stuckey for having the flu?

  • Jason Maxiell with 12 boards and 8 point adding 3 more blocked shots on the season. We want him to come off the bench, but it’s hard to deny that he’s been more than solid in every game this season. I’m on the Baby Eater Bandwagon again.
  • Dare I say Corey Maggette, who played in his first game as a Piston, did well. He didn’t light it up, but he sure did contribute to this win. He played 21 minutes and scored six points before fouling out.
  • A whopping 48 points in the paint for Detroit while holding the Sixers to just 28.
  • Board war handily won 57-38.
  • Possibly one of the best games Brandon Knight has played in a Pistons uniform. He flirted with a triple-double with seven boards, seven assists and 15 points in 35 minutes on the floor.
  • The first time this team has looked like a team this season.
  • Detroit’s defense looked great. They held the Sixers to just 29.8% shooting on the night.
  • What was glaring however was the 17 Detroit turnovers to the Sixers four. You can’t usually win games when you turn the ball over that much.
  • Andre Drummond scored six, with two boards and an assist in just 11 minutes. His last basket he got a swipe and then went coast to coast for a dunk late in the game to put a cap on win.
  • This one was actually fun to watch! The Pistons led by as much as 23 points, their largest margin all season long.
  • It was going so well for Monroe that he needed just one eye to make his free throw.

  • Tayshaun played well scoring 15, with six assists a steal and five boards in 34 minutes. It was nice to see Tayshaun playing well from the jump.
  • Now that the Pistons got their first win out of the way and they did it without Stuckey, you know the questions are coming.
  • They could possibly make this two in a row when they play the Magic on Friday night.

The 4-16 Pistons are on the road to take on the 13-6 Sixers in Philadelphia. The Atlantic Division leading 76ers have one of the best home records in the Eastern Conference at 9-2. The last time these two teams met the Sixers blew out Detroit 96-73.

The teams have split their last six overall match-ups. The Sixers have won two of the last three. All three of those games have been in Philadelphia.

  • The good: Detroit with two solid “almost” games in a row have to win one soon…right? With every game they seem to be getting just a little bit better.
  • The bad: Looks like they might be without Gordon, Bynum and CV31 again. No word yet if Tay made the trip or not.
  • Who to watch: Jrue Holiday, Lou Williams and Thad Young.
  • The unknown: Are we finally going to get to see a W from a team who’s been on the brink?

The 10-20 Pistons are on a second game of a back-to-back in Charlotte to take on the 9-19 Bobcats.

This could be an easy steal for Detroit considering all the changes going on in the Bobcats organization. Charlotte’s biggest losing streak was stretched to four with Tuesday’s 99-81 loss to Oklahoma City, getting outscored 31-12 in the fourth quarter. The skid is part of a 1-6 stretch that includes three losses by more than 30 points.

Within the five days between games coach Larry Brown stepped down and was replaced by Paul Silas on an interim basis.

There is also talk that the Bobcats are looking to move Gerald Wallace, though it seems like we hear those rumors every season.

Injuries:

When you’re struggling to win on the road, it’s good to get one in place where they seem to be given away like free candy.

The Pistons survived a hot Eric Gordon, a beastly Blake Griffin, and another bad third quarter to get their first road win 113-107 again the Los Angeles Clippers Friday in at Staples Center.

Detroit was lead by Charlie Villanueva, who scored 30 points, but only pulled down one rebound.

The Clippers were lead by Gordon’s 28 points and Rookie-of-the-year candidate Griffin’s 18 points and 18 rebounds.

Unlike the previous game in Portland, the Piston starters got off to a great start, building a double-digit lead in the first quarter led by Austin Daye’s 9 points.

The lead would reach 10 at the break after a second quarter that saw Villanueva hit 3 treys.

Similar to the previous game (and seemingly all of the others) the third quarter saw the large lead evaporate faster than the Clippers last playoff appearance.

The Clippers surge back into the game thanks to Piston turnovers, rushed shots, and a series of Blake Griffin dunks that electrified the crowd.

The fourth quarter saw the lead change several times before the Clippers took a four point lead with just under 3 minutes to play.

Charlie V then knocked down two consecutive triples to pull Detroit within one each time. Then LA’s Rasual Butler hit one to put the home team 102-99 ahead with 29 seconds left.

After some free throw makes and misses both ways, the Pistons found themselves down 2 with 15 second remaining until Rip Hamilton tied things with a left corner jumper.

Rip then made a steal as the Clippers tried to inbound the ball after their timeout, and missed a pull-up jumper at the buzzer that would have won it.

In overtime, Rodney Stuckey and Jason Maxiell converted on free throws and field goals that put Detroit ahead for good.

Key Points:

Being that I now live in Los Angeles, I took this one in.

  • Charlie V was on fire in the first half, and clutch in the fourth quarter. Clipper fans were amazed or astonished by his shot making down the stretch.
  • This was Detroit’s first road win in five tries this season.
  • Blake Griffin has one of the ugliest jumpers I’ve ever seen.
  • The Clippers played without two starters: Baron Davis and Michigan native Chris Kaman.
  • Why doesn’t Ben Wallace finish games anymore?
  • Hey, a Jason Maxiell sighting!
  • Austin Daye was hot in the first, but disappeared the rest of the way.
  • Fans at Staples Center began leaving at around the 3 minute mark for some reason although the game was still in the balance.
  • Ben Gordon was non-existent, but picked up a technical foul for arguing with the official.
  • There was a Clipper fan who was so into the game that during a timeout when the team dancers were on the floor, he stood in the aisle and followed the routine step-by-step as people were trying to walk to their seats. We were very entertained.
  • Tracy McGrady gave to Pistons a brief lift in the second quarter.
  • The Clippers seemed to get to the rim at will in that third quarter.
  • Why did Will Bynum continue to shoot jumpers late in the game?
  • Shout out to that drunken fan who kept screaming “Deeeee-troit Baaaaa-sketballllll Sucks d**k” at the Piston fans in the house. He was also trying to pick up teenage girls at the arena.
  • Next stop: Sacramento Sunday Night.

Detroit Pistons The Season of BallsThe Pistons did an awesome job coming back from behind and beating the Minnesota Timberwolves last night in their last game of season. The Pistons were trailing the Wolves by 16 in the third quarter, but thanks go out to Charlie Villanueva, who scored 13 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter to secure the 103-98 victory.

Had the Pistons lost, they would would have either tied for the 5th worst record with the Wizards or finished in a three way tie for the 4th worst record with the Wizards and Warriors depending on the outcome of their game.

Forget that…the Pistons are now tied with the Sixers for the 6th worst record in the league. Our lottery Balls dwindled with a win (or two). Detroit now has about a 5% of the number one pick.

That still doesn’t mean the Pistons won’t get a high pick, they still have chances.  Look at the Bulls, they surprisingly got the first pick with a 1.7% chance.

I’m not screaming for the top pick, but up to a 5 would be nice.
