Rolling rolling rolling, that’s what comes to mind when we talk about the Pistons in January. Posting another great month at 13-2, the Pistons have just about demolished every team in the league.

Once again the Utah had our number, as we lost to the Jazz 94-90. The only other loss this month came from New Jersey. The Pistons showed the League why they are the top team in the NBA pounding the reigning champion Spurs 83-68. The Milwaukee Bucks gave them a run for their money, but they are not on our level just yet.

Sheed had another great month, going against some of the top power forwards in the league and getting the job done. Sheed had a wonderful game against the Spurs posting 27 pts, 10 rebounds, and shooting a 12-20 from the field, while Timmy “The Robot” had 17 pts, and was horrible from the free throw line going 3-10.

February is All-Star month in the NBA. It’s a time when individual performances are supposed to take a front seat to team play. The Pistons have rewritten the books on that one and could possibly have 4 All-Stars at this year’s All-Star game. Not because of individual performances but for team play. A lot of other so called “Superstars” could learn a few things from watching the Pistons.

February 12th vs. the Miami Heat – The Heat did a whole lot of talking before the December game about how they were re-loaded and ready for the Pistons. Let’s see if they can compete with The Pistons this time around.

February 14th vs. the New Jersey Nets – The last time they got the Pistons on a bad shooting night, not this time! Expect Billups and Hunter (if he’s back) to contain Jason Kidd this time around.

February 17th – 19th – NBA All-Star Weekend.
February 17th – 2006 Rookie Challenge
February 18th – Slam Dunk Contest – No Pistons, but I’m going with Nate Robinson.
February 18th – Three Point Contest and Skills Contest
February 19th – NBA All-Star Game – 4 Pistons could be there

February 26th and 27th – Against the Cavs – Back to back games against the Cavaliers. Not an easy task, the Pistons should get it done against Lebron and Co.

Let’s hope The Pistons roll trough the second half of the season as easily as they have the first.
