”I knew they were going to come at me,” Sheed said. ”I could see the double coming, and I just got the ball to the open man.” Rasheed led the team with 19 points on just 10 field-goal attempts. He was 6-for-10 from the floor, including 3-for-4 on 3-pointers, and made all four of his free throws.
Rasheed had another great night against the Bulls and even followed the crowd’s ”Fire Millen” chant during a late timeout, referring to Detroit Lions president Matt Millen. ”That was all in good fun,” said Wallace, who jokingly offered to play quarterback for the Lions earlier in the season. ”I hear there’s going to be a big march on Sunday, but we’ll be out of town.” Referring the the ”Angry Fan March” Lions fans are holding on Sunday before the game.
The Pistons were in charge the whole game, with great great ball movement and a ton of second chance points. The Pistons also rebounded well something that they have been trying to work on as of late. Arroyo had a nice game and kept the lead for the bench when the starters sat, something that they have had trouble doing in the past. Tonight’s game gave some rest to the starters who played limited minutes against the Bulls because of their dominating play.
The Pistons also paid homage to their great owner Bill Davidson with a special ceremony to honor his many years as one of the best owners in sports. They put his name alongside other Pistons greats where it belongs in the rafters of The Palace which he built for his team in 1989. Thanks Mr. D for your selfless acts in the Metro Detroit Area and for your commitment to greatness, the fans truly appreciate you.
