Compton native Tayshaun Prince dropped 31 on the Lakers matching his career high in front of family and friends as the Pistons went on the beat the Lakers 97-83. Mr. Big Shot added 21 points and looked like the Chauncey of old, in sync right from the start. The Pistons where without Rip Hamilton who sat out due to a hyper extended elbow and is listed as day to day.

I was surprised to see Dale Davis make his first appearance of the season. Rasheed Wallace got into early foul trouble with two in the first two minutes, but still managed to play 32 minutes and score 15. The biggest surprise of the night was the fact that Jason Maxiell didn’t play, most likely because McDyess and Mohammed had very productive nights with 22 rebounds between them.

Tayshaun single handedly took it to the Lakers in the third quarter scoring 17 of his 31 points to help the Pistons pull away to a 21 point lead. His crowning moment of the game came in the third when driving to the basket with a little fake that sent Kobe to the floor.

The Pistons looked good last night let’s hope they have found their rhythm.

    This was a great game to watch. I have always wanted to see prince score 30 plus points and I did last night, it was great. He played so well like they were in the playoffs and it was a do or die game. Just wnat I like to see, with rip out someone needed to step up and do some scoring. I hope rip is not out for long but if he is I hope tay can keep up his work with scoring.

    Great highlight of tay and Kobe. At first I was thinking his play was from his knee but he then he came out in the forth and played if he had of done that all game it woul d have been a closer game.

    keep it up boys

    I think that was their best game of the season so far. I was hoping Tay can beat his career high, just so he can have a new one. I know he would have been proud too!

    I love Tay but he didn’t make Kobe fall with his fake. Kobe’s surgericaly repaier knee buckled and he fell, If you watch the replay you’ll notice he was falling before Tayshuan even made the fake.
