The Palace wasrocking when Chauncey started hitting three pointers like they were lay-ups in the last few minutes of the game. Happy Pistons fans once again broke into an “MVP” chant as he went to the line at the end of the game. Chauncey deserves to have his name mentioned again for MVP after going through a bit of a drought that had people forgetting what kind of player he is, I mean if Pepe La Pizzle is in the running Chauncey has to be.
Sheed almost didn’t make the game arriving only 20 minutes before tip-off due to a daylight savings time malfunction, almost breaking the streak of the same five starting for the same team in consecutive games in the NBA. But it looks like that record will stay at 73 because Rasheed got his 16th technical foul during the game after defending a hard foul that he and the rest of The Palace thought was flagrant on Ben Wallace. That means Rasheed will be suspended for Tuesdays game against the Hornets.
Tayshaun scored 23, Rip added 12 and the Wallace brothers each had a double double in the second straight come from behind win at home. Nobody pulls out a win like the Pistons.
